Shiri to DeMbare: Operation Restore Legacy or Play in Division 1

Harare - Perrance Shiri - one of the chief architect of the Operation Restore Legacy, resulting in the ouster of Robert Mugabe, has warned that ailing giants Dynamos, risk playing inferior Division One football, if their current status continues unattended.   

The country’s most decorated football club have been enduring a horror season this year, claiming the scalp of club president Kenny Mubaiwa.

Dynamos are a massive 24 points behind leaders and defending champions FC Platinum, who have 41 points. Shiri shared his heart while officiating at a dinner reception hosted for the COSAFA Cup winning Warriors.

“I think I would like to offer a bit of some advice to two soccer teams, being Black Rhinos and Dynamos Football Club.

“To Black Rhinos, I think if they are to succeed, they need to throw away male chauvinism and take a leaf from the female Rhinos who have proved themselves very good players and well organised to the extent that they dominate the national women’s soccer team.

“To Dynamos Football Club, I will be honest that the founders of the club need to carry out an operation restore legacy. Anything short of that they may play in the First Division next season,’’said Shiri.

Dynamos have, meanwhile, restructured their executive with the board of directors yesterday making some key appointments they hope will revive the former champions.

The new set-up has banker Isiah Mupfurutsa as chairman, business personality and president of the Women in Health (vice-chairperson) Esther Mawere and the pair of Human Resources executive Moses Shumba and miner Francis Madzinga.

Dynamos, however, did not immediately name Mubaiwa’s replacement. The Dynamos board secretary also believes coach Lloyd Mutasa, who has been reinstated, needs the support of the club’s chiefs.

“The coaching department needs to be given maximum support which was lacking in some way and only when we have supported our coaches fully can we then blame them for failure,’’ Nyamayaro said. - The Herald/Online Sources
