Ndiraya bemoans Chafa departure

HARARE - Dynamos assistant coach Tonderai Ndiraya admits Devon Chafa’s departure is a big loss to the club but acknowledged it was necessary for financial reasons.

Chafa was released by the Glamour Boys this week after his representatives failed to agree terms on the transfer fee and has since been granted clearance to join other teamS.

The 24-year-old was among several players that are out of contract at the Glamour Boys and is now heavily linked with a move to ambitious Premiership side How Mine.

The highly-rated midfield enforcer, who was a part of the club’s four successive league titles under former coach Calisto Pasuwa, has also reportedly caught the eye of some clubs in South Africa, but a move within the Castle Premiership appears at the moment the likeliest.

And Ndiraya recognizes the adverse effect Chafa’s exit will have on his team though confident of finding a suitable replacement.

“He is a good player who would have been useful to us,” Ndiraya told the Daily News yesterday.

“Of course we have a lot of replacements for him but his absence will definitely weaken us. It is always a blow to lose good players but at the same time it creates avenues for new players to shine.

“They did not agree terms and as coaches there is nothing we can do but to look for able replacements. As you know the club has adopted a new policy and if they can’t meet players’ demands then it’s difficult.

“We have some who play in that same position and we hope they will fit in well.”
