Dynamos hunt for their first Chibuku glory

Story by Lawrence Trusida, Sports Editor

HARARE giants Dynamos are targeting nothing short of victory when they take on Premier Soccer League champions Ngezi Platinum Stars in the final of the Chibuku Super Cup set for Baobab Stadium this Sunday.

The Glamour Boys are targeting their first-ever Chibuku Super Cup Trophy since its inception in 2014.

To achieve that, they however need to upstage Ngezi Platinum Stars in their own backyard, something they have failed to do since the Mhondoro-based side was promoted to the PSL in 2016.

DeMbare have bossed all other trophies in the country, but the Chibuku Super Cup has remained elusive.

On the other hand, Ngezi Platinum Stars managed to win it in 2016 and have been to two more finals without success, losing to Highlanders in 2019 and FC Platinum two years later.

Despite Dynamos having not won at Baobab as well as the Chibuku Super Cup having been won by home teams, DeMbare are hoping to break the jinx as they believe their multitude of fans can be a factor.

“After we missed out on the league, and second place, this is a must-win for us, we haven’t won a trophy in a long time and we believe Saturday is our day. We need to win something for the fans, they have been excellent and we know they can be a huge factor for us on the day,” said Dynamos head coach, Genesis Mangombe.

The two teams have a clean bill of health ahead of the encounter, with no injury worries.

Apart from players on the pitch, two youthful coaches who have made a name for their exciting brand of football will come head to head with Genesis Mangombe of Dynamos and Takesure Chiragwi of Ngezi Platinum.
