Dynamos Germany trip cancelled


A week after missing on a much- hyped friendly against Libyan side Al Ittihad, the Harare giants have once again stuttered before take-off after their intended trip to Germany for a training camp was cancelled.
Dembare failed to travel to the European country after “sponsors pulled out”. The training camp was meant to prepare arguably the biggest club in the country ahead of their African Champions League mini-league match against TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo on July 18. A source at the club said: “There was no such trip to Germany from the onset. I think the announcement was meant to avert the strike action by the players in the past two weeks. The players haven’t been paid yet but have resumed training hoping that they will get their bonuses and allowances backlog when the team plays TP Mazembe.”
Dynamos players, who are owed bonuses and allowances from seven league matches two, weeks ago staged a mutiny. They only resumed training after they were told that they would travel to Libya, an issue NewsDay exposed as a PR stunt gone bad.
But the trip was cancelled at the last minute after the Libyans had a change of heart and never communicated with their Harare counterparts, leaving them grounded when coach Elvis Chiweshe was expecting a bigger training camp.
Dynamos will be charging a whopping $10 for the cheapest ticket for the TP Mazembe match, apparently in a fund-raising move for the financially crippled club. Meanwhile, Dynamos’ counterparts in the African safari, Caps United are also busy with training ahead of their trip to Sudan for a date against Al Hilal of Sudan in the Caf Confederations Cup.
