Mutuma, Chinyama in Training bust-up

Dynamos coach Tonderai Ndiraya was yesterday left stitching together a fractured camp following a training ground scuffle between his two main strikers, Takesure Chinyama and Rodreck Mutuma.


Dynamos play Castle Lager Premier Soccer League log leaders Chicken Inn in a make-or-break tie for them.

DeMbare, as they are affectionately known, trail Chicken Inn by seven points and need to win the match on Sunday if they are to retain any title hopes.

They have set themselves a target of collecting maximum points in their remaining matches.

But their preparations for the Barbourfields clash encountered a major setback after their striking duo fell out yesterday, raising doubts that any camaraderie can be repaired in time.

The two first had a verbal exchange before they attempted to exchange blows, which was, however, stopped by the timely intervention of teammates.

A senior Dynamos player told NewsDay Sport that Mutuma reacted angrily to his fellow striker’s instruction during a break after playing a preparatory match against a Division One side at Old Hararians Sports Club.

“We were joking and laughing around when Takey told Roddy that he needs to keep his position because he was playing too deep and always drifting to the wings. Roddy did not see the funny sideof it and he took offence. They started exchanging harsh words and had we not quickly intervened, it could have degenerated into a fistfight,” the player said.

The incident happened in full view of the club’s board chairman, Bernard Marriot, who attended the session together with his other directors, including Freddy Mkwesha.

Marriot later called Mutuma and calmed him down, but the temperamental striker could be seen gesturing in Chinyama’s direction.
During the kerfuffle, Ndiraya remained calm.

This is not the first time Mutuma has clashed with teammates, as he has previously clashed with former team captain Murape Murape.

The clash briefly cost Mutuma his Dynamos career as he was shipped out of the club to join bitter rivals Caps United before he was later pardoned.

Yesterday’s incident is the last thing Dynamos would want, as they chase their fifth league title.

In better news for Ndiraya’s side, defender Sydney Linyama trained with the squad yesterday amid reports he is leaving for the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The club on Monday confirmed that Linyama was leaving for trials with AS Vita, but subject to receiving his air ticket.

Earlier reports had suggested that the defender, who missed the game against FC Platinum through injury, was set to leave anytime this week.

However, Linyama trained yesterday and indications are that he would be part of the squad travelling to Bulawayo.

He is now expected to leave for Kinshasa next week.

The other positive in the Dynamos camp is that midfielder Walter Mukanga has fully recovered from an injury and was heavily involved yesterday.

Young Kudzanai Nyakasaka has also started training following an injury.

Meanwhile, Caps United coach Lloyd Chitembwe says his players have shown the hunger to succeed in the last of their two matches and believes it will help them as they face Bulawayo giants Highlanders in a Premiership tie at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Caps United coach has picked four points from the last two matches, following his appointment to the post after drawing 0-0 against Buffaloes before beating Hwange 1-0 at the Colliery where very few teams have failed to come out with positive results.

And the Caps United gaffer has praised his charges for the way they have applied themselves since he took over.

“I am very happy with the way they (the players) have applied themselves, particularly in the last two matches. They have shown so much desire. In football, even if you don’t do well, as long as you have the desire, you have somewhere to start from. Our target is to try and do well in this fixture. It was a good result away in Hwange. Personally, I felt the team takes glory for the result,” Chitembwe told reporters during a Press conference in the capital yesterday.

His assistant coach, Mark Mathe, a former Highlanders coach, says his knowledge of the Bulawayo giants would come in handy.

Mathe worked with the majority of the Highlanders players and introduced some of them to premier league football.

    I think that what you published made a ton of sense. But, what about this?

    what if you were to create a killer post title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you
    how to run your blog, however what if you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Mutuma,
    Chinyama in Training bust-up – sportbrief is a little vanilla.
    You should look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article headlines
    to get people interested. You might add a related video or
    a related pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your posts
    a little bit more interesting.
