Lloyd Mutasa says he doesn’t have hard feelings over his sacking at Dynamos and being made the scapegoat for the club’s worst season in more than a decade.
Mutasa who was dismissed on Thursday went from hero to villain having guided the club to second place last season to be the fall guy who put the club in the relegation zone.
“As a professional coach, you take every decision that comes your way. I was brought up in the Dynamos system, and I take everything, the good or the bad that comes my way. The leadership felt I was no longer needed and I accept it. If Jesus was sold out by Judas Iscariot who am I to have hard feelings over people,” said Mutasa.
The Warriors assistant coach, however, thinks that he should have been allowed to finish the season and also protect his reputation.
“Whoever is going to take over would need time to adjust and with just a few games before the end of the season if he loses he will give the excuse that he inherited a team that had already been relegated.”
Mutasa’s first flirtation with Dynamos as head coach couldn’t last a season as he was fired midway of 2011 after assembling the core of the team that Kalisto Pasuwa went on to win four league titles with.
Earlier this season, he was relegated to the juniors before board chairman Bernard Marriot rescinded the decision. The club has been negotiating with a former assistant to Pasuwa, Philemon Mutyakureva to take over until the end of the season with Pasuwa set to take the reins next year.
