Zim players' Euro teams struggle

[Posted 11 Nov 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Bhasera is one of a number of Zimbabweans whose soccer teams are struggling in Europe

After a somewhat promising start for many Zimbabwean soccer players' teams in their European leagues, their fortunes have suddenly taken a nose dive, and some of their teams are now starring relegation in the face.

Onismor Bhasera of Plymouth Argyle started League One campaign in England with his team like a house on fire and with a promise of a swift return to the Championship from where they were relegated last season.

Plymouth started promisingly with a 1-0 victory over pre-season favourites Southampton in their first match. The victory was followed by a series of draws and losses which has left the team in 15th position on the log only three points above relegation zone.

Plymouth are only three points away from 16th placed Tranmere, a team which sits in a fourth place away from the last team in the relegation zone.

For a team which started brilliantly in League one, Plymouth will be disappointed at having only managed 5 victories, 4 draws and losing six times in League One. This could have been perfectly understandable if the team was only promoted to League One last season.

Justice Majabvi will probably look at Bhasera's sorry position in England with a bit of envy. His team LASK Linz is languishing at the foot of the Austrian topflight league log, a position which has become identifiable with Linz this season.

Linz have lost the last three matches by an average scoreline of 3-0. Thats a terrible situation for any club hoping to avoid the chop come end of the season. The team currently lies bottom with a paltry 8 points from 14 matches, and a goal difference of minus 22.

In Belgium's Jupiler League, two Zimbabweans' teams, Cephas Chimedza and Vusa Nyoni's S't Truiden and Germinal Beerschot are 4th and 5th from the bottom respectively.

S't Truiden have only managed 11 points from 14 games (just 4 points from the bottom team Charleroi) with the worst goal difference in the league of -20 goals. Beerschot are two points better than S't Truiden and have a minus 13 goal difference, the league's 3rd worst.

Only Honour Gombami's Cercle Brugge appear to be doing fairly well as they sit on 8th position and and at least a 0 goal difference. Cercle though, have lost the good form they had picked up after a slow start to the season.

In Denmark Quincy Antipas' Sonderjyske has run out of steam after having started the season so well and sitting on 4th position on the Supaliga log only a month ago. In their last three matches they have lost twice to Lyngby (0-1) and Silkeborg IF (1-2). They managed a draw away at Odense BK.

Sonderjyske currently sit on 7th position with 19 points from 15 games, a whopping 22 points difference with the log leaders FC Copenhagen, and only 5 points seperate them from the bottom side AaB. That is surely a cause for concern for Antipas.

In Poland, Clement Matawu's club Polonia Bytom currently occupies 4th place from bottom in the Ekstraklasa. They have only managed 14 points from 12 games and are hovering on 2 points above relegation zone.

Fortunately for Dickson Choto and Takesure Chinyama, their team Legia Warsazawa are the team on form in the league, having notched 5 wins in a row. They sit 3rd on the log.

In Ukraine, Musa Mguni's Metalurh Donetsk needs to quickly halt their current downward spiral and avoid heading straight into the relegation zone. They have incredibly lost their last 5 matches, and Musa has made cameo appearances in those matches.

Donetsk has been sitting on 18 points for more than a month now, and they occupy 11th position out of 16 teams after , and just 4 points away from relegation zone.

Apart from Choto and Chinyama other Zimbabweans who can afford a smile these days include former Warriors skipper Benjamin 'Benjani' Mwaruwari who had struck a rich vein of form for Blackburn until a hamstring injury put paid to Benjani's hopes of holding down a regular place in Sam Allardyce's improving Blackburn team.
