DYNAMOS coach Paulo Jorge Silva said he has sealed deals with three Brazilian players whom he expects in the country today.


The Glamour Boys coach spoke glowingly about the players, describing them as “very experienced”.

He said the trio — all of Brazilian origin — play their club football in Europe with one of them reported to be playing in Portugal and the other two said to be based in Austria.

One of them plays either as a defender or midfielder while the other two are strikers.

Silva said the players still had contracts with their respective clubs, but were willing to come and play for Dynamos on a free loan.

The Dynamos gaffer also said they had entered into a special arrangement whereby the parent clubs will be responsible for paying the players.

“They are very experienced players and they are all Brazilians, but playing in Europe,” Silva said.

“One of them is playing in Portugal for Benfica and others are in Austria. One of them is a defender, who can also play as a midfielder and the other two are strikers. I am expecting them in the country tomorrow (today).”

Silva is on record saying he is not impressed by the strikers at his disposal and wants to add bite to the attack by bringing in new players from outside the country.

The Glamour Boys forwards include Rodreck Mutuma, Takesure Chinyama, Richard Kawondera, Farai Mupasiri and Kelvin Bulaji.

However, Chinyama has been dogged by injuries which could see him missing the first few games of the new campaign.

He has been recovering from a pulled muscle since the start of the 2016 preparations and when he returned to training last week, he suffered a recurrence and is back on the treatment table.

The Glamour Boys though remain confident the big striker could recover before the start of the season. Dynamos are scheduled to leave for Tanzania for their pre-season preparations early next month.

The former champions lost key players who include midfielder Ronald Chitiyo and defender Blessing Moyo to Harare City, but went on to sign several players, including former Caps United midfielder Dominic Mukandi, ex-Highlanders forward Valentine Ndaba and the Triangle pair of midfielder Tichaona Chipunza and goalkeeper Ashley Reyners, among others. In their only meaningful pre-season game so far, DeMbare played Zambia’s Kabwe Warriors and won the match 2-0.


  1. Brazilians? Are they real or fake? So what will happen to Rodhi, Teki, Bulaji and Kaondera? But Silva you are over ambitious. If you loose a match we will chase you away coz you talk too much without action.

  2. Dembare also played Mazowe FC with the dull match finishing 0-0 and dynamos failing to record a single shot on target. I wud also like to take this opportunity to warn dynamos against hiring tourists as coaches and players. do u remember those tourists who masqueraded as Elsavador national team and played Zim’s warriors???????

  3. too much secrecy in Zim footbal. Who are these players, what teams are they coming from? Cant we be told such basics?

  4. We do not want them at all. They should quickly go back. Dembare neye ropa. It belongs to sons of the soil not foreigners. this is another form of colonialism. How can we use Brazilians as strikers. We need to groom and develop Zim ‘s own talent. This will help in future national participartions such as world cup, Afcon, Chan etc, not the Brazilians. For WHAT?Pasuwa won the league for times without Brazilians

  5. BAMBODYNAMO you are just one of the fools to have emerged in Zimbabwe football. We live in the global village my dear and football is good business only yesterday Chiyangwa was ob ZTV preaching about profesionalism is our game and little and dangerous minds like you such a call will fall in deaf ears. Yesterday many people questioned if Dynamos will afford to pay such players and many felt it was a joke that it would happen. As soon as people like you are convinced that the DEMbare coach was not day dreaming its a reality that these strikers are coming you start utering bullshit. I heard tjhe coach well when he boldly said every player has to fight for a position in the new set up which makes a lot of sense in footabll. If they dont perform there are on their way out. Isu masuppoter ngatingowo suppotai topa vanogona ku coacher mukana wavo. The fact that Pasuwa worn four times league with local players is now water under the bridge it was then and its a dynamic world. Whilst l dont have any axes to grind with Pasuwa he did his best for De-Mbare locally but at continental level he did not impress me for sure.

  6. Zvekuti bhora razotambwa nani,kana ani that alone doesn’t help wat we need iz results so guyz lets suport our coach nomatter……

  7. Kune uyo anonzi BAMBODYNAMO chimbomubvunzai kut hw many zim players are plying their soccer carriers in other countries? For yo own info, foreigners bring competition, professionalism and seriousness thereby improving the approach by local players to the game. And in any case anaMutuma vacho they totally failed to make a mark at very small clubs in Sa but kuZim ndoomatop strikers and lacking discipline too. Let foreigners come so that locals can pull their socks
