MASIMBA Dinyero seems to have passed with flying colours, the three-match test at Harare City to be confirmed for the rest of the season when the Premiership football team’s executive meets this weekend to discuss his future.
Dinyero has lifted the team from the murky waters of relegation since he took over the reins from Bigboy Mawiwi.
Harare City secretary Mathew Marara said yesterday the club executive would meet at the weekend to discuss the future of the coach as well as to hold a strategic workshop for the team.
He, however, said they were happy with the coach’s performance and that he would continue as coach for the remainder of the campaign, but they are not sure whether he would continue in the same capacity.
“What I can say is that we are really excited with what the new coach has done so far. We are going to meet as an executive at the weekend for a strategic workshop for the club as well as to discuss the future of the coach. But he will definitely continue as our coach, but we are not sure whether he will continue in the same capacity as interim coach or substantive coach. This will be decided by the executive,” said Marara.
Dinyero had been given a target of winning three games to prove himself and has taken charge of five league games and is undefeated. He started off on a winning note after defeating Chiredzi FC 2-1 before being held to a 2-2 draw by Shabanie Mine at Maglas.
Dinyero then lead his side to a 1-0 win over Chapungu before following that up with a 3-2 win over Bantu Rovers before clobbering How Mine 3-0 recently.
Those results lifted the Sunshine City Boys from third position from the bottom with only 15 points in 16 matches to ninth position on the league table with 28 points.
