DYNAMOS coach, Jorge Paulo Silva, survived the axe Wednesday night but was given a new target of collecting nine points from their next three matches.

This followed a meeting with the technical team following a string of poor results which saw Harare giants failing to win all five competitive matches they have played so far.

Dynamos were booted out of the Independence Cup by Chicken Inn who beat them 1-0 in the semi-finals on Saturday. But another 2-0 defeat to FC Platinum in a battle for third and fourth place in Bulawayo did not go down well with the team management who summoned the technical team to a meeting.

More worrying is that they have not scored a goal in all those matches.

Club president, Keni Mubaiwa, emerged from the meeting to announce that they had given the coaches a new target.

“What we have done is we have given the coaches a target of nine points from their next three matches against Mutare City, Caps United and Hwange; anything less than that they are fired.

“The meeting did not take much time. That is what we agreed because no one is happy with the performance of the team,” said Mubaiwa.

The club leadership had initially set a target of 25 points from the first 10 games but with the way the club is playing the Portuguese coach faces a daunting task in his bid to save his job.

If he manages to negotiate his way past Mutare City on Sunday, only a miracle can save him against an ambitious Caps United who have had an explosive start to the season in which they have collected four points in two matches after a 3-0 victory over Chapungu in a season opener and a 1-1 draw against newly promoted Ngezi Platinum.
