New boss at PSL


The top flight league has appointed former secretary general Kennedy Ndebele as the new chief executive officer.

PSL chairman Twine Phiri was non-committal on Ndebele’s appointment although he confirmed that the league has a new boss.

Meanwhile, Dynamos striker Evans Gwekwerere yesterday said the three successive defeats they suffered at the hands of Esperance, TP Mazembe and PSL log leaders Motor Action might be a blessing in disguise ahead of the Banc ABC Sup8r quarter- final tie against Hwange at Rufaro Stadium Sunday.

Gwekwerere said the pain of losing three games in a row has united the players who are now eager to prove that they are still good enough.

“We were becoming a bit complacent after the good run we had in the Premiership. Those defeats came at a right time and from what I observed in training this morning (yesterday), the players were working as a unit,” said Gwekwerere.

The stocky forward also said they had put the three defeats behind them and are now aiming to down Chipangano.

“We have put that disaster (three defeats) behind us and we are looking forward to our next game against Hwange. We are ready for the match,” said Gwekwerere.

Dynamos’ foes said they are ready to face the Harare giants.

“We are not worried about Dynamos. We are actually looking beyond Sunday’s game. I can assure you that will we be playing in the final of this tournament,” said Burzil Dube, who is the club secretary.

Dube also revealed that they will take disciplinary action against their star player, Farai Vimisayi who has not reported for training since returning from Tunisia where he played for Dynamos in the Orange Caf Champions League.

“We have not heard from him since he returned from Tunisia. He has not reported for training. We will sit down as an executive and see what disciplinary measures we can take against him,” said Dube.

Dube said Vimisayi would not be selected by either DeMbare or Chipangano Sunday.

Meanwhile, struggling Caps United will lock horns with Shooting Stars in another BancABC Sup8r quarter-final match at Sakubva Stadium in Mutare this afternoon. Caps gaffer, Lloyd Chitembwe, who has come under heavy pressure from the team’s supporters after a poor spell, said he was unfazed.

“I’m used to that kind of pressure from fans from the time I was a player so I’m not moved at all.
Those fans are well aware that we lost four first team players so they should give me a chance,” said Chitembwe.

Saturday: Motor Action v Gunners (Motor Action Sports Club), Eagles v Highlanders (Gwanzura).
Tuesday: Kiglon v Dynamos (Rufaro)
BancABC quarter-finals
Saturday: Shooting Stars v CAPS United (Sakubva)
