Dynamos rising star Blessing Moyo for Sundowns?

DYNAMOS are set to lose their rising star Blessing Moyo to the South African Premiership with wealthy football club Mamelodi Sundowns reportedly circling above the talented defender.


A Dynamos source yesterday told NewsDay Sport that the Pretoria side is ready to swoop on the 19-year-old right-back in January.

“Mamelodi Sundowns have been monitoring the youngster and want to give him a trial in November soon after end of the season. They were impressed by the player during their tour here and Peter Ndlovu (Sundowns manager) made contact with the player’s representatives. If he passes the trial, he will leave as soon as January,” said a source.

However, Dynamos manager Richard Chihoro yesterday said he had not been contacted by any club including Mamelodi in relation to Moyo although he said the reports linking the defender away were not surprising considering his form lately. He referred questions to club secretary-general Webster Chikengezha who could not be reached for a comment.

“I have not received any communication from any club including Mamelodi Sundowns. It’s news to me, but if that is the case I won’t be really surprised. He has been very good since being promoted to the first team. He is one of the outstanding players at Dynamos right now. But like I said, I don’t have details, maybe they are talking to Chikengezha,” said Chihoro.

Moyo is one of the few players who have risen through the Dynamos junior ranks in recent times and gone on to make a mark in the first team.

The other notable player who came through the ranks and made an impact in recent years is Partson Jaure who recently signed for South African side Pretoria University.

Dynamos coach Kalisto Pasuwa used Moyo as a bit-part player last season before making him his first choice right-back this season.

The decision to promote the youngster to the first team and relegating the likes of Oscar Machapa and Thomas Magorimbo to the bench attracted mixed reactions from Dynamos supporters most of them who felt the fresh-faced player was not yet ripe for the big occasion.

But it appears Pasuwa has been vindicated as the lanky defender has been playing with the aplomb of a veteran since his first game for the club this season in the Harare derby in May.

Flawless performances then followed, but Moyo cemented his place in the hearts of the Dynamos fans with an absolutely brilliant long-range goal in Dynamos’ 2-0 win over How Mine in a One Wallet Cup match a fortnight ago.

  1. Take your time kid. Dont rush out there. Mature first. Ask Simba and Tafadzwa for advise.

  2. You are still raw for that team young man. Beware of following the Gwekwerere route.

  3. Why the rush. This is a young lad who has plenty of football shelf life on his side. Why not make him play for one or two years locally and I believe that his handlers must aim for a higher league in Europe.

  4. my advise to Blessing is, yes he needs money and better leaving, but remember these south African teams are killing our players, its rather better for you to wait and time will come, in god wish one day you will find your self in Europe or england

  5. May those who handle the affairs of this young promising talent stop this move cause Bule still has a lot to deliver at Dynamos.He has to feature in the Caf Champions League and get sufficient exposure that will undoubtably result in him getting better offers from European clubs instead of rushing to Mzansi.Sundowns only want to to hold on to the player and reap huge bucks from nothing.Dembare should tie him down to a longer contract and if Sundowns come knocking demand big bucks .

  6. Youngman you still have a long way to go. Let your mind decide for you. Wish you the best.
