Ndiraya Wants Murwira Permanently

DYNAMOS coach Tonderai Ndiraya is keen to secure Godknows Murwira on a permanent deal.


The utility player is on a one-and-a-half year loan from champions FC Platinum.

Interestingly, his two-year contract with the Zvishavane club expires in December.

The champions haven’t made any attempt to tie him down.

And Ndiraya believes Murwira will be key to his long-term Dynamos project.

“Murwira has always been in my plans,’’ the coach said.

“His loan with us runs out this December but, as a coach, I would like to have him beyond that period.

“He is one man who can give us a lot, in terms of experience. He is a good player and I definitely want him to stay.

“We have our own vision as Dynamos and, from a coaching point of view, Murwira fits well into that vision.”

Murwira joined FC Platinum last season after an impressive term in Ngezi Platinum Stars’ colours.

He was then loaned out to Dynamos. However, he was injured towards the end of the season with the injury being aggravated during pre-season.

He has fully recovered, following surgery.

The PSL, with the help of the Footballers Union of Zimbabwe, have been encouraging players, whose contracts have expired or are about to expire, to reach a mutually beneficial agreement, with clubs, for the good of the game.

FIFA have since underscored the need for a win-win scenario, in such cases, since the coronavirus epidemic disrupted the game.

FUZ are currently handling several cases in which players want to move out of clubs since some of the teams haven’t been paying them since March.

The 2020 domestic season remain suspended and there are no indications when it’s likely to begin.

Jaure’s Wife Happy With His Progress

“Partson is recovering well, we can even talk now


“Personally, I prefer to keep a low profile, but I guess I have to speak out given the circumstances. It has not been easy for me since that Sunday morning when I received the call from my mother-in-law.

“My mother-in-law called me early in the morning, around 4am, that Sunday, informing me about the accident.

“It was difficult to digest her message. I was shocked and afraid at the same time.

“Partson is a humble guy, which makes him an easy-going husband and partner. He is a loving father and a very supportive husband.

“So, I was wondering why on earth something that bad could happen to a nice person like him. I kept on praying and praying for him.

“We have young children, they need their father. At least the situation is better now, from what the doctors are telling us.

“Recovery is a process, but the doctors seem to be happy with Partson’s progress.

“I have realised one thing: my husband is loved by the Zimbabwean football fraternity. The way Zimbabwe has shown love to my husband in these trying times is really amazing.

“The Jaure family is touched and we are more than grateful. He (Partson) appreciates it.”

“Dynamos have gone out of their way in support of their captain, I thank them for that. The Footballers Union of Zimbabwe, ZIFA and the whole football fraternity have been very supportive in this hour of anguish.”


Nadolo Happy To Be Back Home

DYNAMOS FC newboy King Nadolo, says he is looking forward to a fruitful career after completing his move to his childhood team last week.

The Soccer Star Of The Year finalist is the latest recruit unveiled by the Harare giants in their shopping spree that has seen the club signing 13 players ahead of the start of the new season.

“I am happy, I look forward to a fruitful season with Dynamos,” said Nadolo.

“My hope and prayer is to contribute positively to the overall objectives of the club.

“This means I have to train hard and push myself harder. It’s easier to achieve career goals with a big club like Dynamos,” said Nadolo.

The 24-year old had a fairytale outing in the Castle Lager Premiership last year when he joined relegated side TelOne during the mid-season.

He had been linked with various clubs during pre-season, among them champions FC Platinum, Ngezi Platinum, CAPS United, Chicken Inn and his former club Highlanders.

But, on Friday, he chose Dynamos, a club that gave him the foundation to build his football career between 2008 and 2009.

Nadolo, who played in the Glamour Boys juniors just over a decade ago, severed links with DeMbare when he relocated to South Africa where he completed his high school.

He played schoolboy football in South Africa and when he returned home in 2014 he joined DeMbare’s rivals Highlanders.

But he packed his bags again and resurfaced at Witbank Spurs, who were playing in the lower rungs of South African football.

Keen to resuscitate his career, Nadolo signed for Castle Lager Premiership side TelOne mid-season last year and made an immediate impact by contributing vital goals and assists.

Although the side failed to survive relegation, his individual performances still earned him a place on the Soccer Star of the Year calendar.

He was also chosen by fellow players to win the FUZ Footballer of the Month award in November 2019.
Despite playing half the season, he finished third in the Golden Boot race with 11 goals, three behind the winner Clive Augusto. Nadolo also had five assists for TelOne.

DeMbare spokesperson, Tinashe Farawo, yesterday said their aim was to make the Harare giants competitive again.

The Glamour Boys last won the league title in 2014 when Callisto Pasuwa led them to four consecutive championships.

DeMbare have signed players for almost all the positions.

They have roped in their former defender Partson Jaure, the ex-ZPC Kariba duo of Tinotenda Chiunye and Sylvester Appiah, goalkeeper Taimon Mvula, Juan Mutudza, Byron Madzokere, Nkosi Mhlanga, Barnabas Mushunje, David Temwanjira, and rookies Lennox Mutsetse and Tanaka Chidhobha.

“Our aim is to make sure that we have a team that will be able to compete in the Castle Lager Premiership.

“But the overall goal is one day to return to the CAF Champions League so we are working hand in hand with the coach.

“He (coach Tonderai Ndiraya) has his shopping list and the management is working round the clock to fulfil its mandate by providing the resources that are needed.

“So, as long as it is within our means, we will do our best to buy the quality that the coaches want,” said Farawo.
