Thumbs-up for Rusere

Dynamos’ new-boy, Carlos Rusere, has the strength of character to succeed at his new base and make an impact in the premiership, DC Academy team manager Joshua Chirangwi has insisted.

The Zimbabwe Under-23 midfielder joined the Harare giants from Northern Region Division One side DC Academy last week along with striker Kelvin Bulaji, goalkeeper Tonderai Mateyaunga and right-back Godknows Murwira. Dynamos also recalled youth product Nigel Gandari from a loan spell at Black Mambas.

Bulaji had an inconsistent season at Caps United last year while Murwira impressed with his work-rate at Shabannie. Former ZPC Kariba goalkeeper Mateyaunga on the other hand also did a fantastic job after replacing the injured Tendai Hove in the last few matches of last season.

It is however Rusere who could turn out to be the club’s find of the season. Chirangwi is in no doubt that the 21-year-old can take the pressure that comes with playing at Dynamos all in his stride.

“I have worked with him for a long time and I have no doubt that he has the heart to make it at Dynamos. He is technically very sound and he is always hungry for victory.

“He usually plays wide on the left of midfield, delivering excellent passes and crosses to create chances for his team-mates. His shooting is excellent too,” Chiragwi said of his product.

Rusere is highly regarded within the Under-23 set- up where he was the only player from Division One. He was in the starting line-up for Zimbabwe’s 2-1 defeat away to Morocco last November in a friendly international.

Chiragwi is convinced the move to Dynamos has come at exactly the right time for his blossoming product.

“He is ripe for such a move, definitely. And as long as he gets the chance to play he is going to impress them with his hard-work and determination to succeed,” he said.
