Dynamos extend players’ break

Zimbabwean league and cup champions Dynamos were supposed to start their pre-season camp on Tuesday January 2, but the outfit has since postponed the resumption date to January 7.

Club chairman Kenny Mubaiwa said that the main reason for the change in plans is to give the players more time to rest ahead of the upcoming campaign, which will include competing in CAF’s showpiece club event, the African Champions League.

Mubaiwa also told Supersport.com that they will not be camping in Harare this time around as he feels the players may get distracted in such a setting. “We decided to give the players a bit more time to rest as it will be a very long season for them,” Mubaiwa said.

“We will now be camping from January 7. We will camp outside Harare so that the players can concentrate on just what they have to do and that is to train and work hard as we prepare for the new season and the Champions League,” added Mubaiwa.

Dynamos claimed Castle Lager Premier Soccer League honours by accumulating 69 points from 30 games this past season – two points more than closest rivals Highlanders. The glamour club also won the Mbada Diamonds Cup by beating Monomotapa in the final.
