More woes for Dynamos
While they have two of their top players, Simba Sithole and Rodreck Mutuma, for trials in South Africa, Dynamos have suffered another setback in their preparation through injuries.
Striker Farai Mupasiri (back problem), Sydney Linyama, (knee), Partson Jaure (ankle injury) and Ocean Mushure (knee) are all out.
Though Linyama and Mushure have resumed light training, they are not fully fit as yet. They still need to go through rehabilitation before they can fully recover and DeMbare will be starting serious preparations next week – when they play South African side Mamelodi Sundowns in a friendly match.
Coach Callisto Pasuwa said it was sad that there are such injuries at such a crucial time. He said that apart from the friendly games, they have Caf Champions League in three weeks time against Lesotho Correctional Services.
The first leg will be played on the weekend of 15-17 February.
“The news is coming at a wrong time when we are trying to finalise our preparations. We are working hard at training and these injuries are not helping us at all. But that’s football and we have to work with the players that are fit. They are all Dynamos players and we have to work for the team. But it is really disturbing,” the PSL Coach of the Year said.
