Masvingo United Deserves To Be In The Premiership, Says Chinyama1 year ago
Former Dynamos striker Takesure Chinyama has appealed to ex-Masvingo United players to help the club with funds so that it returns to the Premier Soccer League.
The 39-year-old Chinyama began his professional football career with Masvingo United in the early 2000s.
He later played for Hwange and Monomotapa before a lengthy spell in Poland, where he played for Legia Warszawa and Dyskobolia Grodzisk. Said Chinyama:
I have already hung up my boots but I was invited to play in this match as a guest player which I did, given this is the team that first gave me the chance to first play in the top flight.
But I am very much concerned with the plight of this team. They have limited resources and I am calling upon all former Masvingo United players to help out the team in any form.
We need the team back in the Premiership. Masvingo people deserve top-flight football.
I am talking to some of my connections from outside the country who have expressed their willingness to help out the team.
It is something I have always been thinking about. We need to save Masvingo United now.
This is a team that raised several players who went on to illuminate the scene and some who would help the national team.
Chinyama was a guest player for Masvingo United when the club faced Simba Bhora in the Masvingo Provincial Independence Day trophy.
Masvingo United are in the Eastern Region Division One league while Simba Bhora are in the Northern Region Division One.
Simba Bhora won the encounter 1-0 with their top marksman Tinashe Balakasi scoring in the first half.
The winners were given a floating trophy and a US$1 000 cash prize.
