Murape wants to finish in style



With Dynamos being the only Zimbabwe side competing in the CAF Champions League, the preliminary round seems to favour them as they face Lesotho Correctional Services.

The Harare Glamour Boys were not so lucky in their last campaign as they lost 7-1 on aggregate to Tunisian side Esparance, and they will be looking at a better result this time around.

Veteran midfielder Murape Murape believes that this year they have a team that can perform and reach the final stages of the tournament.

He told supersport.com that he wants to retire after winning the Champions League with the team he has served for close to 10 years. The 32-year-old, who enjoyed a stint in the Swaziland league, said that they should start on a positive note and good things will follow.

“You can say it is an easy first round game but this is the Champions League and there are no easy games,” he said.

“We just have to work hard to reach the group stages then take it from there. Along the way you play against other tough teams but we are determined to go all the way.”

“ As for me, I want to go all the way and win it. I have won almost everything in Zimbabwe but not in Africa so with my retirement very close, I have to finish in style and be with the team that will win the Champions League. That’s our main aim as a team,” Murape concluded.
