By Paul Nyathi|The Castle Premier League enters week 17 this weekend with giants Dynamos still locked in relegation zone.
A cabinet Minister says the troubled football giants need an operation to restore the club’s legacy for the Glamour Boys to avoid slipping into the backwaters of Division One.
The country’s most successful and biggest football club have been enduring a horror season this year, which recently claimed the scalp of club president Kenny Mubaiwa, who quit his post.
Lands, Agriculture and Rural Settlement Minister Perrance Shiri on Monday night noted with concern the DeMbare poor run and the inconsistent performances of army side Black Rhinos.
Shiri revealed his concerns during remarks he made before delivering a speech on behalf Vice President Constantino Chiwenga while officiating at a dinner reception hosted for the COSAFA Cup-winning Warriors on Monday night.
“I think I would like to offer a bit of some advice to two soccer teams, being Black Rhinos and Dynamos Football Club,’’ said Shiri.
“To Black Rhinos, I think if they are to succeed, they need to throw away male chauvinism and take a leaf from the female Rhinos who have proved themselves very good players and well organised to the extent that they dominate the national women’s soccer team.
“To Dynamos Football Club, I will be honest that the founders of the club need to carry out an operation restore legacy.
“Anything short of that they may play in the First Division next season.’
