The appointment of a Portuguese national, Paulo Silva, at Harare based side Dynamos, came at a crucial time as the club needs some technical resuscitation to ensure it remain competitive on the domestic front in the upcoming season, after ending the 2015 Premier Soccer League season empty handed
Harare giants will this Sunday host Zambian high flying football side Kabwe Warriors in an international friendly match slated for the ceremonial home of football, Rufaro Stadium.
It would be the first of a series of international friendlies this pre-season in which they are also set to tour Malawi for a sparring session with Big Bullets as well as Tanzania where they will play Young Africans.
The Malawi and Tanzania tours are set for end of this month and beginning of March.
The international friendlies are likely to give newly appointed Dembare coach Paulo Jorge Silva a picture of how his team is ready for the upcoming season.
Dynamos secretary general Webster Chikengezha emphasized on the importance of the Malawi and Tanzania tour.
“We were invited to Malawi and Tanzania and we are very much willing to go and play friendly matches there. It is something important for us,” Chikengezha said.
“I am sure this will cover up for the training camps we had intended to set up. It makes the coaches’ jobs easier because we will be playing stronger sides. It is very ideal to gauge ourselves against more competitive opponents.”
The Harare giants have since intensified their training, gearing up for the 2016 season as they have also signed a number of experienced players despite losing some key players in the caliber of Steven Alimenda, Ronald Chitiyo, Blessing Moyo, and Devon Chafa
