DYNAMOS’ teenage sensation Junior Makunike has mocked fierce rivals Highlanders for having gone 19 matches unbeaten in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) but ending the season with nothing to show for it.

Highlanders were impenetrable in the first half of the season, topping the log table at the midway stage, eight points clear, before crumbling like a deck of cards in the second half.

The Bulawayo giants eventually ended the season on position five, nine points behind Dynamos (58), and 11 behind champions Ngezi Platinum (66).

Having clinched Sunday’s Chibuku Super Cup, Makunike could afford to throw a few jibes at Bosso who have finished the season empty-handed for a fourth successive season.

“They were saying ‘pa pa pa’ after they went 19 matches unbeaten. Look now they do not have a trophy they do not have any medals.

“They said ayidleki (it can’t be beaten). It can’t be beaten? Do you know Chazunguza, the Soul of Seven Million? You have nothing, it was just pa pa pa!”

Ayidleki was a Bosso tagline used by its supporters during the first half of the season when they went unbeaten with a healthy defence.

Makunike, whose family home is a stone’s throw from Bosso’s base Barbourfields Stadium, was instrumental in Dynamos’ third place finish in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League and played a key role in its CHibuku Super Cup triumph at Baobab Stadium.

He was tipped to make it in this year’s Best XI.
