Silva Survives Chop

DYNAMOS coach Paulo Jorge Silva has once again like the proverbial cat with nine lives survived to live another day after the club leadership disclosed on Monday that he will continue to discharge his duties until the weekend match against Hwange.

By Tafadzwa Ndiraire

Silva, whose future had become the subject of discussion following a five match winless streak, had come under the spotlight once again after his side were beaten 1-0 by old enemy Caps United in the 76th edition of the Harare derby at Rufaro on Sunday.

The Harare giants had given Silva a target of nine points from three matches against Mutare City Rovers, Caps United and Hwange failure of which they had said he would be sacked.

Dynamos had failed to win in five competitive matches and crucially they had not scored a goal in those matches.

While the Portuguese cleared one hurdle after overcoming newly promoted Mutare City 2-1 last weekend, they were edged by their bitter rivals Caps United on Sunday courtesy of a solitary strike by Dominic Chungwa.

The result saw Silva missing the target set for him by his bosses who had raised concern over the team’s stuttering form.

The club leadership had been expected to wield the axe following the defeat to Caps United but club president Keni Mubaiwa said on Monday they would only make a decision after the weekend match against Hwange.

Mubaiwa said it would be unprofessional for them to discuss the coach’s future after two games. He said the executive would only review the performance after the third game against Hwange this weekend.

He also revealed that they would not be influenced to make a decision on the future of the coach before the three games.

“We don’t think it’s professional for us to make a decision at this stage because there is still one more game against Hwange. We were not judging the coach by two games but three games. So that means we will wait until the match against Hwange to review the performance of the team and then make a decision based on that. We have said we want nine points from the three matches but a decision to fire or let him go can only be reached after the weekend game against Hwange,” said Mubaiwa.

Dynamos have overshadowed Caps United since they beat then ran 2-0 in 2009 through a double by Nyasha Mushekwi and the defeat to their bitter rivals at Rufaro on Sunday meant that Silva became the first coach to fall to the Green Machine in the past seven years.
