The recently fired Dynamos head coach, Lloyd Mablanyo Chigowe has furiously objected to being a rookie in football matters.
Speaking to Sunday Mail reporters, Chigowe revealed that he has been a coach before the recent short stint at Dynamos. Chigowe said:
I am not a rookie in football.
It’s not like I am coaching with a vending licence, I have a CAF A licence and I have gone through the coaching mill. Football is the same, as long as the boys apply what we tell them at the training ground, then I don’t see any reason to panic.
It’s not like this is my first time to take charge of Dynamos at this level. Remember I was caretaker coach in 1992 after the sacking of Bob Lines and brought in players like Pasuwa (Callisto), Simon Chuma, Mugove Munyorovi and Chamu Musanhu into the first team.
So, I laugh at people who portray me as a novice in this game. Those who know football history can tell you I am not a rookie.
During the season in question, Dynamos is reported to have recorded 10 losses in the league, with only Mhangura (11) and bottom club Shushine (14) suffering more defeats, 44 goals conceded, with only Shushine (54) having a worse defensive record and seventh place on the table.
Mablanyo was also involved with Rufaro Rovers, Douglas Warriors and Zim Leopards as a coach.
