Despite experiencing a tough start to the 2019 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season, FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza believes that Dynamos will certainly bounce back.
Mapeza was speaking ahead of the two clubs’ meeting at Mandava Stadium on Sunday. He said:
It’s a huge game for us as a club. It’s a huge game when you play against Dynamos because they have a huge following in the country. We always cherish those games like when we play them (Dynamos).
Dynamos will always be Dynamos. They remain one of the biggest football institutions in the country despite their challenges, so we need to give them the respect they deserve.
They might have challenges, but it’s normal in this industry. Even in Europe, it happens. Football changes time and again, but they remain a threat.
They will bounce back and I believe what is important for them is to keep believing and working hard.
FC Platinum are nine points ahead of the Glamour Boys. They will seek to retain the title they won for the first time in their history last year, though Caps United and Chicken Inn are providing a tough test of their mettle.
