DYNAMOS interim coach Genesis Mangombe has promised to build a team that will entertain the fans.
Mangombe was elevated to lead the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League giants following the acrimonious sacking, reinstatement and suspension of Herbert Maruwa last week.
He passed his first assignment in charge of the team when Dynamos beat Simba Bhora 1-0 in the Chibuku Super Cup first round match at the weekend.
Speaking ahead of the team’s trip to Gweru on Sunday, Mangombe said he was ready for the big task ahead of him.
“I know myself, and I’m capable of taking the team to better things,” Mangombe told the media at the club’s pre-match Press conference yesterday.
After showing his promise at Yadah where he is credited for introducing “tiki-taka” brand of football now synonymous with the Miracle Boys, Mangombe was roped in by Dynamos to deputise Maruwa at the start of the season.
That combination failed to last the distance.
He said he wants to play the type of football that the often hard-to-please Dynamos fans will find hard to resist.

“I will not change my philosophy of playing football. I want to play a passing game with a lot of intensity, and I will not depart from that. The fans are going to enjoy the type of play,” Mangombe promised.
Turning to the game in Gweru this weekend, he said it won’t be an easy game against the ever-improving Sheasham now under Lizwe Sweswe.
Mangombe, however, said his boys were in good spirits following their win in the Chibuku Super Cup last week.
“I’m happy the win in the Chibuku Super Cup boosted the confidence of the guys after the sacking of the head coach and we are now focusing on the next assignment,” he said.
“It was not easy to motivate the players, but they responded well and we managed to win and proceed to the next round.”
Sheasham have not lost in their last five matches.
They won their last two league matches, beating defending champions FC Platinum and their runners-up Chicken Inn.
Mangombe will not underestimate them.
“They say Sheasham is a small team but of late they have been posting good results especially against the so-called big teams. We need to prepare for the match very well and make sure we don't have to lose,” he said.
