Zim: Football Giants Set to Clash
Zimbabwe’s two soccer teams Giants will be facing each other at Barbourfields stadium in Bulawayo, this Sunday.
Dynamos FC Club which is in the top of the Castle Larger with 30 points, will be hosted in the city of Kings and Queens by their old rivals Highlanders.
The previous time the two teams had clashed, it was during the Independence day’s traditional cup. The Independence Day Soccer Cup was played at Emagumeni/Barbourfields, the same venue which will be used this Sunday for the Castle Larger PSL Match.
On the Independence Cup, Highlanders FC won the cup against Dynamos.
Whilst the two teams will be meeting on Sunday, Highlanders will be looking forward to continuing with their winnings over Dynamos and at the same time, Dynamos FC, will be eyeing for a revenge after they lost Independence trophy to Highlanders.
The Glamour boys will also be looking further to win some points so that they can continue being the league’s leading team.
Highlanders FC which is on the 11th position with 16 points has castigated those who have been causing havoc in the name of the club during the previous matches. The club went further and informed the media, that they are encouraging their supporters to shun from violence acts and urged the members of the public to attend the match in their numbers as this will be recognized as the match of the week .
Highlanders FC club’s Secretary General Morgen Dube said: “We note with concern a few individuals purporting to the football fans inviting violence in the name of Highlanders a practice clearly not synonymous with our culture. This should be condemned with the contempt of deserves and urge all Highlanders and football fraternity to identify and eliminate such minds from near our club.”
Meanwhile, some of the Highlanders fans have used social media platforms to call upon the axing of the club’s coach, Mandla ‘Lulu’ Mpofu.
Some fans have threatened to walk out of the stadium in the 70th minute of the game as a campaign of the removal of Lulu Mpofu.
In a press briefing which was held on the 12th of May by the Highlanders FC, Lulu Mpofu was given an opportunity to address the media and he urged the fans of the club to unite behind the soccer players.
