…I really want to play for Bosso
By Matchday reporter
After arriving in Bulawayo last week, Dynamos reject Roderick Mutuma has not wasted any time in trying to convince Bosso he is no longer a bad boy after being spotted at a local church attending service.
He even spent some time with members of the Family Covenant Church’s Council of Elders in a Guidance and Counselling session where he promised them that he has indeed turned a new leaf.
“I really want to play for Bosso and try to be a better person by avoiding being caught on the wrong side.
“Ndoda kumboita zvebhora, ndaneta nekunyorwa zvakaipa mumapepa (I want to concentrate on football, I am tired of being written about in a negative aspect by the papers),” said Mutuma.

The Prince as he is Mutuma is affectionately known is at Highlanders alongside four unidentified Canadians for trials under the watchful eye of its Dutch coach, Elroy Akbay.
Akbay said that Mutuma has shown that he can cope with their game play but conceded that financial problems have limited the club in its endeavour to bring on board the best and that Mutuma was the best they could afford.
“He has shown that he is able to adapt to our style of play which is a good thing and right now he is the best we can do,” said Akbay.
Training at Babourfields Stadium, Mutuma looked comfortable as they went through their paces and even seemed close to Bosso player of the year Peter Muduhwa.
Mutuma was offloaded by perennial Bosso rivals, Dynamos together with the core of its experienced players a fortnight ago for indiscipline and causing despondency within junior players.
He was reported to have signed for a Mozambican club before reappearing in Bulawayo where he was first pictured with Mudzingwa.
If he signs he will become the only second player since the turn of the millennia to have played for all three giants (Dynamos, Highlanders and Caps United) after Stephen Alimenda.- Matchday
