BOGUS MANAGERS HAUNT ‘WARRIORS’
FOREIGN-based footballers eligible to play for Warriors are being haunted by bogus managers pretending to be representing the national team while demanding bribes to be included in the setup, H-Metro has heard.
“It’s a bad habit that people are pretending to be the manager (of Warriors) and to the point that they even ask for money.
“I don’t think it is right and I have heard stories of people who extort money from players saying that they are managers of the national team.
“It’s not nice and it’s sad if that’s the reason that made him not to be interested in playing for the national team. This is happening to a number of players,” said Mpandare.
The 21-year-old midfielder is among the many Europe-based Zimbabwean players the national team has been introducing.
Mpandare said from his communication with Rinomhota, he doesn’t believe that he has backtracked on his desire to represent the national team.
“I have been communicating with him and there is a time he wanted to play for the national team and we also want him.
“But he hasn’t shown any commitment towards that lately, unless he doubts that l am the manager.
“I hope and pray that there is nothing like that,” he added.
Meanwhile, preparations for the Congo-Brazzaville match set for March 24 are going on well.
Zimbabwe face the central African country in the Afcon qualifier decider which they need at least a point to qualify for this year’s finals to be hosted by Egypt in June.
