D1 giving GZU tough lectures



MASVINGO – Great Zimbabwe University FC is receiving tough lectures in the ZIFA Eastern Region Division 1 league having not only lost all four games played so far but conceded 18 goals and failed to score.
The newly promoted side’s biggest lecture came from the hands Premier Soccer League (PSL) relegated Triangle FC who beat the students 8 – 0. The second biggest lecture came from FC Wangu Mazodze who won 5 – 0 at Mucheke Stadium on Sunday.
Club coach Ishmael Mahachi told The Mirror that they have been finding the going tough because they are still building the team.
He said the majority of players are students who are always tied up with lectures and projects and barely have time to train.
Mahachi also said that their major hurdle is that some players are based at Mashava campus while others are based at the main campus in Masvingo. They only train as a team once a week.
“We started on a bad note because we registered about 22 students then realised that they are not Division 1 quality so, we had to find better players from outside. The general overview of our game is that we lack consistency in playing, we are not consistent in training- we don’t have time for training as a team. Some guys train in Mashava and some train in the city. They meet once every Thursday for combination.
“We are planning on intensifying our trainings, we want Gaths Mine Stadium electrified if resources permit so that we can utilise it for night training. As I indicated earlier, the bulk of our players are students and they will be busy with lectures and projects during the day. We want them to train together from if Tuesday resources permit,” he said.
Meanwhile FC Wangu Mazodze has enjoyed a perfect start to the season having won all its first five encounters. The club is on top of the table with 15 points.
