DYNAMOS manager Richard Chihoro says they advised Ocean Mushure to train while sorting out his differences with the club.
For that reason, the DeMbare captain was back in training on Friday.
He has been joined this week by playmaker Raphael Manuvire, who has been battling for fitness.
It is a big boost for the former champions ahead of the FC Platinum showdown at Rufaro on Sunday.
“There is no reason why a player should stop training. We have said you keep training with the team whilst finding a solution to the issues,” Chihoro said yesterday.
Mushure had resorted to boycotting training and matches in protest over outstanding sign on fees and bonuses that Dynamos owe him.
And as exclusively revealed by H-Metro, the star also had some personal issues to sort out.
Mushure will however, not be guaranteed a place after making a comeback.
Caretaker coach Biggie Zuze, who had a great start with a win over Bulawayo Chiefs away, could be forced to keep the winning team.
“Manuvire is also back training with the team. He is now fit. Both have to fight for a place in the team. We have a big match ahead of us,” Chihoro said.
DeMbare had a bad start to the season, culminating into changes made recently, with coach Mutasa being re-assigned to be technical director while Zuze was elevated in the interim.
This week former captain Justice Majabvi gave his view of DeMbare.
“It is sad that Dynamos have not been doing well. I don’t want to lie. I have not been to the stadium to watch them. But Dynamos need to be on top. They have a big following.
“I don’t know about the executive or other things at Dynamos. But I know the blame always go to the players. But at the end of the day, you need to also see what they are getting because some of them are bread winners. They need to get what they deserve,” Majabvi said.
“I would wish one day they sort out those things and we will start to see where the problem is.
“If the players are given what they are owed and they start to fail, that is when we start to point at them. For now, I don’t want to judge the players and say they are bad,” he said.
