Dembare plunges into problems

JUST when everyone expected Dynamos to be stepping up preparations for the impending Confederations of African Football (Caf) Champions League competitions next month, the Harare giants have plunged into their characteristic problems.

The league champions start their Champions League campaign with a preliminary match against Lesotho Correctional Services on February 12 before what appears to be tough first and second round ties.

All seems to be in a shambles at the Harare giants.

The club is reported to have failed to raise funds for their much publicised training camp in Kariba which is proving to be nothing more than a media hoax.

The team was expected to start camp in the resort town on Monday this week, but nothing on the ground suggests it is still possible.

Dembare's usual training ground Raylton Sports Club yesterday resembled a neglected village football patch with the grass now reaching knee level.

The technical team tried unsuccessfully to shift base to Zimphos Sports Club, with the club's top hierarchy insisting that they should continue using Raylton, which is bumpy and waterlogged.

Dembare also has failed to sign some of the players they had targeted and registered for the Champions League which includes Aaron Katebe, who was their top target, who has joined FC Platinum. Martin Vengesai has joined Harare City after failing to agree a contract with Dynamos.

Rodreck Mutuma, has left for trials in South Africa with Bloemfontein Celtic and if he makes the grade, Pasuwa will be left with only Simba Sithole and Farai Mupasiri as strikers.




A number of Dynamos players registered for the Champions League are carrying injuries.

Pasuwa's situation has been made even more difficult after the all-powerful Dynamos board of directors turned down the coach’s request to include Evans Gwekwerere in the Champions League squad as a replacement for Vengesai.
