IMAGES of Warriors assistant coaches Tonderai Ndiraya and Lloyd Chitembwe bringing together their football acumen and strategising on the downfall of a rival national team are awash on the internet and social media platforms.

That’s because the two respected gaffers are part of the Warriors technical team and working together is part of their job description in the national senior men’ team set up.

That camaraderie will, however, be thrown out of the window when the Dynamos clash with city rivals Harare City on Saturday at the National Sports Stadium in the Chibuku Super Cup.

Ndiraya is in charge of local giants Dynamos. Chitembwe is the boss at Harare City.

“We work together very well at the national under head coach Loga (Zdravko Logarussic) and we are actually good friends. Now we are talking about the Chibuku Super Cup when our respective teams meet on Saturday then that’s obviously a different case altogether. We are employed by two different clubs and our priorities are obviously not the same.

“The best team will win on Saturday. We (at Dynamos) have been putting in a lot of work at training and the boys are responding well to our philosophy and the Dynamos way of doing things,” said DerMbare coach Ndiraya.

Dynamos lead Group 1 with 8 points from the last round of four games with arch rivals hot in their heels with 6 points from the same number of matches.

The group consists of four other teams Harare City, ZPC Kariba, Herentals and Yadah.

DeMbare are searching for their first ever Chibuku Super Cup since it was introduced in the local football scene seven years ago.

The winners of the Chibuku Super Cup will represent the country in the CAF Confederations Cup.
