BRING it on!
New boys Bulawayo Chiefs are not shaken by the replacement of the Dynamos head coach Lloyd Mutasa by interim coach Biggie Zuze ahead of their Saturday encounter.
The Dynamos executive reshuffled its technical team with head coach Lloyd Mutasa being reassigned as director of coaching after he failed to fulfil his set targets to win three successive games.
Dynamos are reportedly negotiating with former Chicken Inn coach Rahman Gumbo to take over as head coach.
Bulawayo Chiefs Secretary General Dumisani Sibanda said ita��s a normal game for them.
a�?Ita��s just the usual DeMbare. The team changed only the head coach but did not change players. Worse still, Biggie Zuze was in the Dynamos technical structures which means there is really not much change,a�? he said.
Sibanda said the only pressure they feel is running around to host one of the biggest clubs in the country- a game that normally has financial rewards that also come with chaos as supporters run wild.
a�?I will not dispute that Dynamos is a big team and has a very big support base in Zimbabwe. This is going to be the first time Chiefs players play in such an environment with a lot of people. Other games involving Dynamos usually end in violence so we hope to have a peaceful encounter with our rivals in our first big match,a�? said Sibanda.
As a new club in the league, Chiefs has been engaging with the DeMbare administration on how to control crowds in games of such magnitude.
a�?It is going to be our first time playing in such a game and we just hope for a peaceful encounter. We have spoken to the Dynamos administration and they gave us tips on how to handle the game,a�? he said.
Sibanda urged people from Bulawayo to come in numbers because morale support is going to be one of the vital tools. Ita��s a must win for them.
a�?In most cases such encounters end up being a Bulawayo vs Harare affair and as such we urge people from Bulawayo to come and support the boys so that they get a fair chance like their counterparts in the game,a�? said Sibanda.
