Break good for us, says Mutasa

HARARE – Dynamos coach Lloyd Mutasa feels the two-week break the Glamour Boys have enjoyed has given his side’s injured players time to recover as they launch an assault on the Castle Lager Premiership title.

The Zimbabwe Football Association cancelled all league action two weeks ago to pave way for the Heroes Day’s celebrations.

Last weekend, DeMbare’s league match against How Mine was postponed to allow the Harare giants to travel to Botswana to take part in the Supa Cup Challenge.

However, the tournament was also cancelled which means DeMbare were inactive for a good two weeks.

This gave the likes of Christian Ntouba, Quality Kangadze, Cleopas Kapupurika, Obey Mwerahari, Carlos Rusere, and Lincoln Zvasiya time to recover from different ailments.   

“I think everything happens for a reason. We are not really worried about the unintended break in as much as we would have wanted to play the same time our rivals are playing,” Mutasa told the Daily News.

“We are taking it in a positive way and if you notice lately we had too many injuries so I think this break was a blessing in disguise as it allowed us enough time for most of our players to recover as well as to train and prepare.

“So, we are just hoping the guys will come back more determined to pick up from where we left.”

Dynamos are currently in third place on the log and can go top if they win the three games in hand which they have against Chapungu, CAPS United and How Mine.

At the moment, the Glamour Boys are sitting on a three-game winning streak following successes over Triangle, Black Rhinos and Hwange.     

Mutasa said it is their target to win all their remaining matches and hopefully win the club’s first title since 2014.

“As an institution there is no game that you go into without looking for a win. So at Dynamos just like at any other team it’s always the case that we are also looking at doing well in all our matches and see what happens at the end of the season,” he said.

“But we don’t want to put ourselves under pressure. We just want the youngsters to express themselves without giving them pressure. I think so far they have surpassed everyone’s expectations.

“People gave these youngsters a slim chance of doing well but interestingly they are now even tipping them to win the title.”
