Dynamos wield the axe on Maruwa

Dynamos have wielded the axe on Herbert Maruwa.

The club’s management have terminated the coach’s contract after Dynamos failed to narrow the gap between them and log leaders Highlanders in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL).

The Dynamos leadership has also suspended assistant coach Murape Murape as well as team manager Richard Chihoro, as they now look to overhaul the entire technical department in a bid to breathe life into their fading hopes of winning the league title.

Dynamos are nine points behind Highlanders and Maruwa had been given a five-game ultimatum to improve their position on the log standings.

However, a 0 – 0 draw against Hwange – in his very first match cited in the ultimatum on August 6 at Barbourfields Stadium – means
Maruwa failed to meet the expectations of his employers, leading to his sacking.

Dynamos chairman Moses Maunganidze said the decision to relieve Maruwa of his duties was an intervention necessitated by the need to
revive the fortunes of the Harare club.

While FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza is already being linked with a move to Dyanamos to replace Maruwa, no official comment about this has been released by the club yet.

Many Dynamos supporters who commented about Maruwa’s dismissal on social media platform Facebook sympathised with the coach.

“The tactic of changing coaches regularly does not build a strong base for the development of the team.

Consistency is the key to success,” said Garry Cartwright.

Another supporter, Allen Kufazvinei, said:

“For his first season, it is a good result. Look at Highlanders, they kept their coaches and now they are winning.”
