. . . DeMbare is ‘Zimbabwe’
DYNAMOS interim coach Lloyd ‘MaBlanyo’ Chigove believes he is the right man to save Dynamos from relegation after beating CAPS United 2-1 in the Harare derby at Rufaro yesterday.
The victory gave DeMbare a sigh of relief in as far as relegation woes are concerned as they have jumped to 11th position.
They, however, need to keep collecting points in their remaining five games as they are only two points away from relegation zone.
Despite the relegation woes, DeMbare have gone for four years without major silverware.
And asked if he is the right man to bring glory back at the Glamour Boys, Chigove decided to talk of the current situation – relegation fight – of which he said is the right man for the job.
“Probably we might not talk of the league championship per se but I think I am the man for the job, to save the team from relegation,” said Chigove.
He described DeMbare as a nation saying everyone will be happy if it wins matches.
“Every game is going to be a cup final and we are not underestimating, we will give all we have to collect maximum points in our next assignment.
“And I hope after the fourth game, the nation will be happy because Dynamos is like a nation, it controls the majority of the supporters. So I believe that going they must be a choir that will be singing praises for the boys’ heroic acts,” he said.
Chigove praised his men for the character they showed playing an experienced CAPS United.
“. . . CAPS United have guys with a lot of experience and the boys coming out for the cause it’s pleasing.
“We had to make one or two tactical changes (on half time) to make sure that CAPS United don’t start play from the back and to make sure that we add more fire power at the front and it worked wonders for us,” he said.
Star midfielder Denver Mukamba was not part of the squad having gone AWOL in their last encounter.
“The resolution was that even Denver behaves like every one of the other 28 registered players he will be considered but if he wants to play a Madonna, then we will demoralize the whole team because of one man but definitely we value his talent,” he said.
CAPS United coach Lloyd Chitembwe said DeMbare showed more fight that his team and that decided the game.
“For me I think the difference was in the fight, they showed more fight than us and that was very defining,” he said.
He, however, described his team’s performance as the poorest so far this season.
“And at the same time I just want to allude to the fact that it was probably our poorest performance this season as far as I am concerned. . . I know what my boys are capable of doing and today that was not the case,” he said.
