I can turn Bosso around: Chinyama

Former Zimbabwe national team striker Takesure Chinyama believes his style of play can help revive the glory days for Highlanders.


Chinyama was released by Platinum Stars at the end of last season, after his contract ran out and is now trying his luck with the Bulawayo giants, having failed to secure a place at former club Dynamos.

Chinyama is under pressure to find a club before the transfer window closes on July 31, but believed he could do well at the reigning Mbada cup champions. “Bosso are a great team and any player would like to be a part of them on any day,” he said.

“The team is playing very well and I can gel in easily, considering that their style of play is what I am used to now, having played for great teams in South Africa, known for their entertaining flair of football. I still have everything it takes for a player to make it at Bosso, who remain the most entertaining team in the local league.”

Highlanders Chief Executive Officer Ndumiso Gumede was recently quoted confirming that they were in talks with the former Hwange striker. “We are looking at where we can fit him in, but at the moment nothing concrete has been settled.”

The Harare-born player was at some point in the books of SA’s Orlando Pirates, where he banged four goals that secured a 9-0 aggregate win over Djabal FC of the Comoros, in the first round of the Caf Champions League two seasons ago.

Chinyama finished the side’s top-scorer with four goals in the Champions League as Pirates eventually finished second behind Al Ahly, the Egyptian side. But that did not guarantee him a longer stay at the club, as he was shipped out at the end of that season, eventually landing at Rustenburg-based Stars.

At Platinum Stars, the lethal Zimbabwean striker spent most of the 2013/14 campaign either on the bench or in the stands, as Coach Allan Freese challenged him to work hard to be in the team.
