Media reports in Zimbabwe reveal that ZPC Kariba FC coach Sunday Chidzambwa was secretly recorded while taking a swipe at the club’s hierarchy.
Chidzambwa was allegedly sharing the real reasons why he has decided to quit the club at the end of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season.
The report follows Chidzambwa’s announcement last week that he would step down, saying he let down the club and its supporters having failed to win anything in his three years at the club.
However, the audio reveals the animosity between Chidzambwa and the club’s executive being the real reason why the experienced mentor has decided to call it quits.
In the leaked audio, Chidzambwa and goalkeeper coach Brena Msiska are heard talking to an unidentified man revealing their reasons for quitting.
“This executive came saying they know all about football and made it very clear that they want to hire their own coach, not us whom they found already at the club. [Tungamirai] Mazarire has no respect, he belittled me last week, imagine he told me that his executive doesn’t respect my CV saying their executive know a lot about football,” Chidzambwa is heard in the audio.
Chidzambwa went further to say Mazarire, who is the club chairman, had told the coaches they do not get instructions from them (coaches) on which players to bring into the club.
The former Warriors coach alleged in the recording that the players are not happy when their winning bonuses are taxed.
However, the coach has since refuted the recording to the NewsDay website saying: “I heard about the audio, but I will not say much. How can somebody record people having a bar talk? That is bad.”
