Marere unfazed by taunts from Vietnam

benjamin_marere2HARARE- FORMER Dynamos star winger Benjamin Marere (pictured) says he is unfazed by the taunts from Dynamos fans on his return to Rufaro when his new team FC Platinum played the Harare giants in a Castle Larger Premiership on Wednesday.

Marere who dumped Dynamos before the start of the 2011 Soccer Season to join northern region division one outfit Highfield United who later loaned him to cash-rich premiership new boys FC Platinum was given a rough treatment by the Dynamos fans, on his return to Rufaro with his every touch of the ball being booed. And it appeared the place he used to call his home had suddenly turned into hell.

To his credit Marere kept a cool head throughout the match and was never tempted to respond to the taunts by the Dynamos fans from the notorious Vietnam Stand. He later told the Zimbabwean in an interview he was unfazed by the Dynamos taunts and would continue to play his normal game.

“I knew that this is the treatment I would get from them,” said Marere. ‘These things happen in football and the best way to handle it is not to respond. I have nothing against Dynamos supporters but in football it is all about movement of players. I left Dynamos for a reason but this does not mean I will not play for them again,” said Marere.
Marere was one of the key players who deserted Dynamos in a player exodus that saw players like Evans Gwekwerere, Dylan Chivandire leaving the club. Gwekwerere has also suffered abuse from Dynamos fans for his decision to leave the Harare giants for bitter rivals CAPS United.
