Mutasa Showers Praise For His “Kids”

Dynamos coach, Lloyd Mutasa was full of praises for his young team after it dispatched an elderly Caps United FC team , one nil, in the semi final of the  Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) Charity Shield played yesterday at the National Sports Stadium.

Dynamos used the first installment of the Harare derby to introduce its team of youngsters, which did not disappoint in the highly charged match.

In a exclusive interview with 263Chat after the game, Dembare coach Mutasa said his kids got inspiration from the history of the club.

He said that pressure to represent the biggest team in the country did not deter the team from excelling .

“Before the game we had a discussion of the history of Dynamos on how great players like Memory Mucherahowa, Vocalist Pasuwa among others they were recognized through these matches and I think Kudzanai Dhemere took the message and it helped him do well on the pitch,” said Mutasa.

Dhemere scored the solitary goal that gave Dembare the win.

Mutasa was also impressed by the performance of his son, Panashe, who made his Dynamos debut yesterday.

“We have not seen much from Panashe Mutasa because of the time he came in but want I believe is that these youngsters worked as a team and Panashe was part of the team and he managed to defend the goal which the lead was leading when he came in plus he has also attacking with the team and this gives us the eye of the future of these youngsters” said Mutasa.

Dembare will now meet Highlanders who dispatched Chicken Inn 2-1 in Bulawayo in the other semi final.

Despite losing,Caps United head coach Lloyd Chitembwe was impressed with the way his team played in their first competitive game of the year.

“As far as I am concerned we are ahead of schedule and usually it takes a team six weeks to be ready and considering what I saw today I think we are we are doing well.

“We just need to improve on some certain important aspects of the game. Our transition from defending to attacking was not the best and vice-versa, but in the second half there were some improvements and basing on that and with a little bit of time working on some key areas of our game, I am sure we stand a very good chance to be a very formidable team this season” said Chitembwe
