Fired Masomere vows to bounce back

Former How Mine coach Luke Masomere has vowed to return to the premiership in two weeks, a week after he was sacked by the miners.

Masomere claims he was pushed out of How Mine by a third force.

He was sacked after losing 0-3 to fired-up FC Platinum on Wednesday last week.

"I feel I was pushed because of a third force. I'm bouncing back into football in two weeks' time as there's a Premiership club which needs my services," said Masomere.

It is not clear which team might need his services.

Masomere blamed ageing players for the club's poor run.

Yesterday, How Mine was dumped out of the Chibuku Cup by ZPC Kariba as they lost 3-0.

However, his sacking was always coming.

There were high expectations at the beginning of the year when Masomere dominated the transfer market going as far as Harare to bring big names in what many dubbed "Mean Machine" that included former Dynamos midfielder Devon Chafa and Tawanda Muparati.

The shopping spree did not end there as Masomere went on to pounce on ZPC Kariba marksman and Soccer Star of the Year second runner-up, Limited Chikafa and former Highlanders striker Charles Sibanda.

Both Sibanda and Chikafa graced last season's soccer stars calendar with the former sharing the Golden Boot award with How Mine striker Kudakwashe Musharu, each having banged in 12 goals.

Masomere also snapped former Highlanders shot stopper Munyaradzi Diya before luring back former gunslinger Benjamin Marere, who had a short stint with FC Platinum before retracing his footprints to the Bulawayo-based gold miners.

Ex-CAPS United skipper Tapiwa Khumbuyani joined the club, as striker Leftara Ndale coming from Masvingo United.
