Dynamos set to appoint Munemo, Murape

DYNAMOS are close to bringing in former players Clayton Munemo and Murape Murape to be part of Lloyd Mutasa's backroom staff as the Harare giants battle to navigate the murky waters they find themselves in.

Mutasa has been given five matches after which his performance will be reviewed and is currently working with goalkeepers' coach Gift "Umbro" Muzadzi and team manager Richard Chihoro following the ouster of Portuguese gaffer Paulo Jorge Silva last week.

And the club's executive is believed to have settled for the two former Dynamos sons as they seek to bolster the technical team.

Munemo and Murape have emerged the front-runners and are believed to have agreed terms with the club's executive. Yesterday, secretary-general Webster Chikengezha said they were yet to confirm the other members of the backroom staff as they are still vetting a number of candidates. But The Herald is reliably informed that the two assistants are set to be appointed today.

"We are yet to appoint anyone as we still have to clarify a lot of issues. We have identified a number of coaches to work with the head coach but there are some requirements that an assistant coach in the league should have such as the Caf B Licence, so we have to verify that first with the coaches we have identified, whether they are compliant," said Chikengezha.

"Lloyd Mutasa is also expected to have his input on the candidates since he would be working with them and so it is a process before we settle for any one." If appointed, Murape would be making his debut as a coach after he hung up his boots in 2014. Since his retirement, he has been involved with coaching in schools and had a stint with Kutama Boys High.

The former Monomotapa team manager, Munemo, is now eligible to coach again after his Asiagate ban was lifted by ZIFA in January this year. Munemo was involved with the club at the turn of the millennium and is credited as being one of the coaches who identified a number of players who went on to form the core of the "Kidznet Project" under Moses Chunga.

Munemo was the head coach, assisted by Biggie Zuze, with Malcom Fourie as the team manager when the club entered into a partnership with Churchill Boys in a project that groomed players such as Eddie Mashiri and Norman Maroto.
