THE resumption of the Premier Soccer League is slowly gathering momentum, with some top-flight clubs having resumed training in preparation for the proposed mini-league.
Premier Soccer League Clubs are back to full training after players and officials went through mandatory Covid-19 testing.
The country’s biggest football club Dynamos has taken the lead and has not taken the foot off the pedal ahead of the proposed mini-league.
“It has been long and we were hungry for the resumption of the game. We have taken the lead and we are not taking this lightly as we prepare for the proposed mini-league by ZIFA. As Dynamos we are positive of coming back a stronger side given that we assembled a formidable side of youth and experience. It is good that we are back as we survive on bonuses which help us here and there,” said Gift
“The guys are raring to go and from the performance during training, it is clear that the return of football was long overdue. DeMbare is a big club so we will continue working hard so that when the competitive action resumes we would be ready to deliver according to our fans’ expectations,” said Patson Jaure.
Bulawayo Chiefs are one of the clubs that are also back to full training after posting pictures on their Twitter page with a full complement of players.
The resumption of local football comes as a welcome development with international assignments such as the CAF Champions League, Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and the African Nations Championship finals on the horizon.
With uncertainty over the ability of local clubs to finance the required regular testing of players and staff, the intervention of the local football mother -ZIFA gave the clubs a renewed sense of hope that the return of football will become a reality.
