Armed with nothing more than years of supporting teams by sitting in the stands, wasting many years screaming at the TV, and trying to assemble the best back room team…of Football Manager, Serbian national Бранислав Боjaн set off to find fame and fortune with any team that would hire him.
After nearly two years of unemployment (don’t ask how he supported himself during this time) Боjaн found himself being offered the great powerhouse that is Dynamos FC, in the Mecca of the foot balling world….South Africa.
They have been around since 1997, and are nicknamed the Dynamites, but in terms of any diamonds, rough or otherwise; the cupboard is decidedly bare.
In terms of staff, it’s very simple, there aren’t any. And that is really a double edged sword, yes, you don’t need to buy out there contracts, but equally, it makes it very difficult to assemble a complete back room when you are coaching in South Africa, and yet you hold Serbian and Scottish nationality.
Further compounding the issue, the team is a mid to low ranked National First Division Side, so second tier, in a country that enjoys football, but has no real prestige attached, or many development opportunities.
Club facilities are better than expected, but still not flash. The club doesn’t have any fan base to speak of, and tickets are about 3.40 per unit, and the clubs finances are finely balanced….on a razor blade.
The good news is that there is money for transfers and a bit of slop in the wage budget too. The bad news is that I am also missing any type of player who can play right defender.
