Sharara's advice for DeMbare

AS DYNAMOS edge closer to relegation with each outing, legendary winger July Sharara has come up with an antidote which he thinks can help ease the situation at his beloved club.

The record champions have had an indifferent start to the current season and sit in 12th position — just a point above the last relegation spot.

Not even a reshuffle of the technical team has come up with a change in fortunes as the free-fall continues.
First it was Portuguese coach Paulo Jorge Silva who was sent packing following a string of poor results.

His replacement Lloyd Mutasa, formerly an assistant to the sacked mentor, has not been spared the backlash losing both his home encounters to FC Platinum (0-1) and Highlanders (0-2) since taking over on an interim basis.

“I would say the problem that we are having with modern-day coaching is that we don’t want to think outside the box,” Sharara tells the Weekend Post.

“They say the problems is with the strikers but if you look at the technical setup they have a long list of coaches, including goalkeepers’ but is that really where the team’s problem is? 

“Why not bend the rules a bit and incorporate someone who comes in specifically for the strikers?”

The former winger said his was a tried and tested concept which improved the career of former Mutare United and CAPS United midfielder-cum-striker William Chari a decade ago.

“When I was coaching Mutare United, I told William that he was better off as a striker than midfielder.

“He had problems with that but heeded my advice and had a couple of drills with him and the rest is history,” Sharara said.

“He went on to score four goals in our next match against Hwange and that same month he was named the player of the month and the following season he was signed by CAPS United.

“But before that, he had played for Mutare for a lengthy period without getting much recognition or scoring many goals.”

Sharara has sadly relied to what people tell him about his team as he has not been able to watch any single Dynamos match because people manning the gates demand him to pay for his entry.

It is only with Harare City and Highlanders’ games that he has been accorded the legendary status he deserves.

“The last time I watched a Dynamos match was way back in December 2013 when Twine Phiri was still the PSL chairman.

“I have not been so lucky with the current administration as they haven’t made a PSL card for me and at Dynamos matches they say I should produce a DeMbare VIP card,” he said.

“I respect Highlanders and Harare City.

“They really know and value their legends.

“I always watch Harare City games and when I happen to be in Bulawayo, Bosso allow me free entrance into the stadium.”
