DeMbare booted out

Dynamos……(1)1
Triangle…..(2)2

TRIANGLE coach Taurai Mangwiro tore into Dynamos players, describing them as average after his side progressed to the final of the Chibuku Super Cup following a semi-final match that saw second assistant referee Salani Ncube stretchered off injured after he was struck by a missile at Rufaro Stadium yesterday.

The Lowveld side will face Harare City in the final, following the latter’s success over Caps on Saturday.

Mangwiro, who played for Dynamos in the 1980s, was brutal in his assessment of the Harare giants after his side dumped them out of the country’s premier knockout tournament.

He charged that DeMbare was now an ordinary side driven more by the fans than the talent they possessed, and that only two players could make it into his squad.

He also condemned the behaviour of the fans, saying they should learn to accept results after they turned violent, throwing missiles targeting goalkeeper Ronald Mudimu for employing delaying tactics in the second half after his team had led through a Russel Madamombe freekick six minutes into the match before Lameck Nhamo doubled the lead seven minutes later.

There was a brief stoppage of the match following the incident.

“To be honest with you, the reality on the ground is that Dynamos is a team that is driven more by the fans than the talent they possess on the field of play. That is the truth of the matter. It’s not an insult to my other colleagues, we have seen the good work that they have done. But if I look at the players that Dynamos has and I want to incorporate them in to my team, maybe one or two will make it to the starting team. That is the truth of the matter,” he told reporters after the match.

He was happy with the result and the way his players had applied themselves.

“Yes, sweet victory for us. We started off on a very positive note, inside 12 minutes we were already two up. It was the kind of start that we wanted. It upset whatever they were going to throw at us. In the end, we had to suck in a lot of pressure after they had scored just before half time. It was the disturbances that perhaps did not give a good picture for our football. I don’t think it’s what we need as a nation and some of the things that we can control, let’s try as much as possible because in the end it chases away the sponsors because of ugly scenes like what we saw today. At some stage, I felt it was no longer safe for my players to continue after what you saw happening.

“The goal that we conceded, I didn’t even see it because I was busy protesting that Lameck Nhamo is having missiles thrown at him when he got injured and that is the time they are scoring. The next thing is the goalkeeper is having missiles thrown at him and to make matters worse, now we have the assistant referee getting injured and it is there for everyone to see. At times, we end up endangering the lives of many because of the failure to accept results and today this is the message that we have for Dynamos. It is a reality check; people should not fool themselves into believing that suddenly there is a good team. The games that they have won, they have been winning them in Harare against Harare oppositions and today we were in there in the field of play and I knew we were technically better than them. We proved it to a larger extent. This is how I want to look at the game.”

Despite Triangle’s dominance, Dynamos reduced the arrears at the stroke of the first half, with skipper Marshal Machazane heading home a corner kick by Valentine “V11” Kadonzvo.

As tension grew in the stands after the second half, Ncube broke down after he was pelted with missiles by Dynamos fans as they protested against his decision to flag for offside as DeMbare attacked the Triangle goal on 68 minutes.

The match had to be stopped for 13 minutes as the medical team attended to the injured referee. He was replaced by the fourth official, Philani Ncube.

However, Dynamos tried to get back into the game as they launched some dangerous raids into their opponents’ goal, but the damage had already been done.

  1. SUGAR SUGAR BOYS! CONGRATULATIONS! FELICIDADES! YOU HAVE DONE THE RIGHT THING TO SILENCE THE dynamos BARBARIANS. ZANU and dynamos ARE THE SAME.
    PSL SHOULD HEAVILY DESCEND UPON THIS POOR, PRIMITIVE CLUB FORMED IN 60s BUT DO NOT HAVE EVEN A TRAINING GROUND, CLUB HSE AND A STADIUM.

  2. Well done Sugar boys for teaching mabharanzi e dynamos a lesson. You were playing away from home but you collected full points to qualify for the final. MAKOROKOTO!!!

  4. Community soccer clubs in Zim must not be allowed to play in psl. Mabharanzi mazhinji, marombe mazhinji, mbavha, mhondi nevaroyi zvese are found in community soccer teams. Dynamos and Bosso are the only community teams in PSL and are bringing the beautiful game of soccer into disrepute. The sponsors wont pour their monies when murderers masquerading as fans are found killing opposition players and supporters. THESE 2 COMMUNITY TEAMS, VIZ, dynamos and BOSSO MUST BE BANNED FROM PLAYING IN PSL.

    1. Ko Highlanders yapinda papi apa? I wonder if Bosso contributed players to DeMbare to help them fight Triangle.

  5. Last match against FC PLATINUM at Mandava, dynamos refused to use the dressing rooms and other proper channels. Psl, never took any action just becoz that stup!d poor team is their cash cow.

  6. thats stupid mangwiro dynamos is still a force to reckon with and what is average and if not below standard is the quality of the whole coaching team because miracles can be sprung with average players, so do not try to make a hero were herosim is not require mr mangwiro, i beg your pardon.

  7. Comment…Eliasha, what exactly is stupid about Mangwiro? Chii chaareva nhema? The name Dynamos does not play Bhora. Pasina dubious officiation ingadai DeMbare iri kuenda kuD1. DeMbare yakafa kubva kudirectorship, management, coaching, players kusara kwemhondi masquerading as fans. Team haifaniri kuhwinha through violent intimidation yemafans. I was disappointed nemaitiro emafans eDeMbare.

    1. no no its the coaching department and part management which has gone to the dogs otherwise everything else is still water tight hence reason why i beg to differ with this hero seeking mangwiro who seeking fame through raising ghost observations in the beloved dembare team.

  8. @Sibanda, the game btwn Chapungu and Bosso at Ascot. Highlanders fans attacked Chapungu fans and players. Allan Tavariswa was attacked by Bosso fans and had to play the remainder of the match with a bandaged head. MANGWIRO WAS RIGHT IN HIS NARRATION.

  9. no no its the coaching department and part management which has gone to the dogs otherwise everything else is still water tight hence reason why i beg to differ with this hero seeking mangwiro who seeking fame through raising ghost observations in the beloved dembare team.

  10. eliasha a lot of people love Dynamos including Mangwiro.This Dembare we are seeing hapana team apa.

    1. all faithfuls are stuck with this team and nothing is going to change, the only difference we have here is that the coaching is not up to scratch and thats what it is, give this current team to a reputable coach and the deal is done, chunga has come in the open to say he can turn the fortunes of this club to prove critics wrong but nobody want to give such people a chance etc
