Mutuma edges closer to rejoining Dynamos


RODRICK Mutuma’s dream to rejoin champions Dynamos is as good as done with the club hierarchy revealing that a lot of ground has been covered and were now just tying up some loose ends.


Dynamos secretary-general Webster Chikengezha said the deal to re-sign Mutuma was as good as done.

“He is training with us and we have covered a lot of ground to have him (Mutuma) on our books. We have agreed on most of the things on the contract and we hope to conclude the deal any time from now,” Chikengezha said.

Dynamos have been crying out loud for a trusted striker as their forwards Washington Pakamisa, Simba Sithole (injured) and
Patrick Khumbula appear to struggle in their respective roles.

That Dynamos have scored one goal courtesy of an own goal in their opening two matches of the 2014 league campaign provides a graphic illustration of how their strikers are struggling to put the ball behind the nets.

Mutuma, who has been on the books of South African Premiership side Bloemfontein Celtic, has been training with Dynamos this week as he seeks to make a return to the club that laid the first brick of the foundation for him to cross the Limpopo River for greener pastures just over a year ago.

The lanky forward, who won the Golden Boot Award in his last season before securing a contract in South Africa, is a free agent after he was released by Bloemfontein Celtic last month, a club he joined during the January transfer window last year.

The Zimbabwean international forward was signed by then Celtic coach Clinton Larsen, but struggled for game time since the
arrival of Ernst Middendorp, playing just two games since the German coach took over this year.

Now he has returned home where a number of clubs are reportedly targeting him as he seeks to resurrect his career.

Some South African clubs are also reported to be keen on signing him on.
Mutuma though says his heart remains with Dynamos.

“Dynamos is my team at heart. They contributed immensely to my career growth and I will forever be grateful to them. When I decided that I shouldreturn home, the first team I thought of joining was Dynamos,” Mutuma told NewsDay Sport early this week.

“My manager Edzai (Kasinauyo) is handling the issue, but if the chance avails itself, I would want to rejoin Dynamos. I have spoken to the coach and he has said he would want to have me back.

“I severed ties with Celtic because of lack of game time. I wanted to play, but the coach wouldn’t give me a chance. It happens in soccer and I have to move on.”

Kasinauyo said although there was a possibility of him joining another South African club, Dynamos would be the first choice.
