Boost for Dynamos as Malajila returns


Dynamos marksman Cuthbert Malajila jetted into the country from South Africa yesterday ahead of the Harare giants’ African Champions League match against TP Mazembe of the DRC.
Dembare team manager Nyika Chifamba described Malajila’s arrival as a boost for the club who are dominating the local league with a 100% success record. Malajila was in South Africa where he was on trial at Maritzburg.
“Save for captain Tafadzwa Maingire whom we rested in our match against Eagles on Wednesday, all our players have a clean bill of health,” said Chifamba.
“The good news is that Malajila came back from South Africa and will be available for selection on Sunday. Having him in camp is always good because that gives the coach more options. We are preparing hard for this match.”
The Dynamos manager added that they were hoping to get an International Transfer Certificate (ITC) for former skipper Murape Murape before the match.
Murape is still to get a reverse clearance from Mbabane Highlanders where he played briefly last year.
Meanwhile, Mazembe conducted their first training session yesterday morning at Prince Edward School under the watchful eye of coach Deigo Garzito. Garzito said he knew Dynamos’ style of play after watching them play against FC Lupopo in the qualifying matches.
“Dynamos are a defensive side who thrive mainly on counter-attacks. I know their style of play very well and that of local sides after playing Monomotapa in the past. I can safely say we know how Zimbabwean clubs play because we have played many teams from this country before.”
Garzito warned Dynamos: “We are not here as tourists. We are here to win. All my players are fit. The only player who is not here is Kabangu Mulota who is flying in on Friday (today).”
From the session, they headed off to their hotel and were not due to train in the afternoon after having spent the better part of the afternoon seeking accommodation.
