UNBEATEN Black Mambas could exploit the chaos in Harare City’s camp when they clash in a ZIFA Northern Region Division One Soccer League match this afternoon.

Harare City have been struggling for funding and coach, Joseph “Shabba” Takaringofa, is more concerned with raising a team for matches instead of the eventual results.

Takaringofa lost a number of good players during the mid-season transfer period.

They lost Timothy January, Tendai Mukono, Bright Majamanda and Ashwin Chihowa, who had to get their clearances through the intervention of Footballers Association of Zimbabwe.

“We are having a torrid time and, just to fulfil the fixture, considering the situation we are in, will be good.

“It will be good if we come up with a positive result, we have been trying our best but the players are not motivated at all.

“There are some challenges, and we could not train for the better part of last week but are looking forward to the game.

“It has been a challenge as some players are not able to travel to town as they are incapacitated. We have tried as a team but we are getting a raw deal.”

He added:

“I am looking forward to the game as we have started the race well, but I am not sure if we are going to make it as we are a tricky situation.

“The team has been relying on promises which are never fulfilled.”

Meanwhile, ambitious ZIFA Eastern Region Division One League side, FC Wangu Mazodze, have hired Masimba Dinyero and added him to their technical bench.

FC Wangu Mazodze spokesperson, Sue Ndlovu, confirmed that Dinyero, who has not been attached, will join Zhalala Zhululu as assistant to George Magariro.

“On behalf of Zhalala Zhululu we welcome Masimba Dinyero on becoming part of the brand as he joins our technical team.

“Dinyero joins the club as part of the FC Wangu Mazodze technical team.

“We hope to work together with the best ideas and techniques to make sure FC Wangu Mazodzes vision becomes a reality.”
