Clubs sit on wallets during transfer window

Staff Writer

LITTLE activity is expected during the mid-season transfer window for the Premier Soccer League (PSL) mainly due to viability problems facing most clubs.



dana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif”>The PSL transfer window, which opened last week until the end of this month, is usually used by clubs to beef up their squads to battle for the championship as well as to escape relegation as the league enters the second phase.


This season very few, if any, transfers will be made during this period.


Bernard Marriott, the interim secretary-general of popular Harare side Dynamos, dismissed prospects of his club signing new players at this point in time.


“We have quite a lot of problems to tackle. For now we really can’t talk about that issue,” Marriott said.


Dynamos technical director Keagan Mumba added: “There are a number of players who have expressed interest in joining us, but look, I am stuck. I haven’t received any budget for that.”


Willard Manyengavana, the team manager at league leaders Caps United, also said the green-shirted outfit didn’t have plans to introduce new faces to their rampaging arsenal.


“We don’t have any plans at the moment. The team has impressed and is likely to see the season through,” said Manyengavana.


Meanwhile, relegation-threatened Sporting Lions are next in line to face the wrath of unstoppable Caps United at Gwanzura Stadium tomorrow.


Caps United lead the 16-team log with 37 points, nine ahead of second-placed Shabanie Mine, who face a tricky encounter away to troubled Zimbabwe Saints on Sunday.


The highlight of the weekend however could be the clash between Masvingo United and third-placed Highlanders at Mucheke Stadium on Sunday.


Motor Action are yet to defeat Dynamos since joining the top-flight league three years ago but clashes between the two teams have always produced entertaining soccer. Another potentially explosive clash is set for the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.
