Dynamos title defence in jeopardy

AFTER tendering his resignation on Thursday following the previous day's 3-0 league loss to FC Platinum at home, former How Mine coach Luke Masomere blamed injuries, ageing players and external forces for the poor form.

The defeat to FC Platinum stretched How Mine's winless run to seven matches, including an embarrassing 5-1 thumping by off-from Highlanders within that spell.

Masomere said he will take a break from football before considering new offers from other clubs.

"We have been affected by injuries a lot. We are forced to change our central defence week in week out trying to come up with a winning formula but it has not been working," Masomere said.

The How Mine squad has over-30 players who include Tawanda Muparati, Tapiwa Khumbuyani, Benjamin Marere, Gilbert Banda and Menard Mupera.

"Age has also been affecting us negatively,” said Masomere.

“It is catching up on most of my players. I think we erred as a club by having a lot of players who are beyond their peak. We did not do our recruitment properly."

"The other problem is when the team is not doing well it is easy to point fingers on the coach but there are other things beyond my control that are affecting the team.

“I have done well before with clubs that are financially challenged so why would I fail with How Mine who are stable in terms of money?"

Kalisto Pasuwa who does not have a binding contract with the Warriors is already been rumoured as possible replacement for Masomere.
