©️  RECOVERING Dynamos captain Partson Jaure has saluted the club’s executive, fans and all those who stood by him during the trying times.

The defender, who re-signed for the Glamour Boys at the start of the year, was involved in an accident in March and was left with severe facial and head injuries which saw him undergoing delicate surgery to fix head fractures.
The process, because of its delicateness, required huge sums of money and the Dynamos executive played a leading role in settling the player’s medical bills, while the team’s fans also came up with an initiative to complement their leadership.
The Warriors international also received a huge helping hand from fellow national team players based in the diaspora, who raised in excess of US$5 000 to help foot hospital bills.
The initiative was spearheaded by Footballers’ Union of Zimbabwe president Desmond Maringwa.
While he is now out of the woods, Jaure is still undergoing physiotherapy to get back to full fitness.
The defender said it could have been a different story had it not been for those who stood by him in probably the darkest period in his life.
“I’m feeling much better now. I’m doing physio while waiting for the next step from doctors otherwise I’m almost there,” Jaure told the Daily News yesterday.
“It has not been an easy road and I want to thank all those who stood by me during the difficult times.
“My club has been awesome, they have been on my side from day one, the same applies to the club’s fans. I’m really grateful for what they did for me.
“I also want to salute my Warriors teammates for chipping in as well. I’m humbled by such a kind gesture. Not forgetting those who were praying for me, it helped me a lot and may God bless them all.”
The defender is one of the several players who were signed on by the Glamour Boys ahead of the 2020 Castle Lager Premiership season.
Jaure, who captained the local-based Warriors to qualification for the 2020 African Nations Championship (Chan), made his PSL debut with DeMbare in 2012.
He rose to become the Dynamos skipper, winning titles under Kalisto Pasuwa before leaving midway into the 2014 season for South Africa’s University of Pretoria.
However, when he returned home in 2016, Jaure joined Ngezi Platinum Stars before he left for a short spell with
Buildcon of Zambia the following season.
And last season, the 27-year-old was at ambitious Manica Diamonds before retracing his footsteps to the Glamour Boys at the start of the year.
Apparently, the 2020 Castle Lager Premiership faces further delay as the government continues to find ways to combat the spread of the lethal coronavirus (Covid-19) which has caused havoc across the globe.
Last week, President Emmerson Mnangagwa partially relaxed some measures but extended the lockdown indefinitely, with public gatherings still banned.
The development has now cast doubt on the start of the football season anytime soon since the sport draws huge crowds.
The 2020 season was supposed to have kicked off in March but this was postponed after the novel virus began to spread in the country.

Government has in recent weeks allowed low-risk sport disciplines to resume provided they follow guidelines provided by the health authorities.
