Chinyengetere to rekindle career


HWANGE skipper Rodwell Chinyengetere, who has been out of action for almost one-and-a-half seasons due to injury is reportedly eyeing rekindling his career at Castle Lager Premier Soccer League champions Dynamos for the 2014 season.


Chinyengetere, who had cut his teeth into the Warriors fold last season, suffered a career-threatening injury in September last year when then Monomotapa goalkeeper Artwell Mukandi lunged at him.

He sustained a double fracture on his right leg in a match that the coal miners lost 3-0 in September last year.

The midfielder has been out of action, since then.

Sources said Chinyengetere had recovered and has started training, and is willing to leave Hwange and join Dynamos a team that he has approached with the aim of relaunching his career.

Dynamos secretary Webster Chikengezha yesterday said he was not aware that Chinyengetere had approached the Glamour Boys while the coal miners coach Nation Dube, who said he is building a new team for next season, said he was expecting the midfielder back in preparation for the new season.

“I am not aware of that. I have not heard anything about that player,” Chikengezha said.

Dube confirmed that Chinyengetere was recovering well and said he would be joining Chipangano next year.

“I have been approaching a number of boys from Division One clubs in Bulawayo as I want to build a formidable club for next season. There are a number of young boys that have talent out there and we want to make sure we grab them. Rodwell is recovering well and I am expecting him to join us next year when we start our preparations for next season,” Dube said.

Meanwhile, another Hwange midfielder, Nkosana Siwela, whose contract with the coal miners ends this year, said he is looking for a club to join for next year.

“I have not renewed my contract with Hwange and I am looking for a new and better club for next year,” the dreadlocked midfielder who is spending Christmas with a plaster after he sustained an injury in the last game in which Hwange beat Motor Action 1-0 at the Colliery in their last match of the season, said.

Hwange are also likely to lose instrumental right-back Erick Chipeta who awaits communication from South African Absa Premier Soccer League log anchors Golden Arrows.

Chipeta, who is in camp with the Warriors in preparation for the African Nations Championships tournament to be hosted by South Africa next year is also wanted by Highlanders and Dynamos.
