HARARE - Dynamos forward Takesure Chinyama has written to the club demanding release from his contract which is coming to an end in June.
The 33-year-old former Warriors striker seems to have gotten off on the wrong foot with new coach Paulo Jorge Silva.
Chinyama’s relationship with the Portuguese mentor has not been rosy, resulting in the former Legia Warsaw striker being omitted from the Glamour Boys’ 2016 provisional squad released last Friday.
Dynamos president Kenni Mubaiwa confirmed the club had received Chinyama’s letter but they are yet to make a decision.
“He seems to have found a new club. For the past two weeks, he has been saying that he wants to leave Dynamos,” Mubaiwa told the Daily News.
“To be honest with you, I don’t know whether he is really injured or not. The coach says he is injured and when we talk to him he says he is not. We have not got a really conclusive answer from our team doctors regarding Chinyama’s condition.”
“On Friday, we held a meeting with him and we discussed the issue but now we are surprised he has written to us saying he wants to leave.
“But we have a contract with him which ends in June. We are going to sit down and discuss the matter with the coach and the player to find a solution.”
Chinyama’s second spell at the Glamour Boys now appears to be headed for a messy ending after joining the club in the second half of last season.
The former Hwange forward first joined the club in 2012 upon his return from Legia in Poland and immediately impressed and attracted the attention of South African giants Orlando Pirates.
The Zimbabwean only lasted one season with the Sea Robbers before moving to Platinum Stars in 2013.
Chinyama could not reproduce the form he had shown when he was in Poland and returned to Zimbabwe before resurrecting his career with the Glamour Boys.
