Chapungu shift focus
6 November 2017
CHAPUNGU coach Tendai Chikuni hit out at suggestions they donated points to Dynamos following their 1-0 defeat at the National Sports Stadium yesterday.
Chikuni says they gave it their all and was happy with the way his young players fared as they battle to stay in the league.
He was, however, furious with the officiating which he said favoured big clubs at the expense of small clubs.
“If you look at it some of these games are decided by bad officiating because we are small teams and we are not being covered. We are not being protected, players are not being protected. I’m not furious that
Dynamos won but how did they win? We want teams to win fair but not having officiating being one sided.
“I have to give praise to my team. They are young but they played very well,” he said.
Chikuni singled out Dynamos right back Peace Makaha for employing delaying tactics following their lead.
Dynamos scored in the 89th minute.
On the title race, Chikuni said, “If you look at the title race it is difficult. We are still to play some of the clubs that are fighting for the title so it is difficult. If you look at it we did not come here to say we are going to give Dynamos the match.”
Chikuni said they are now focusing on their next match.
“This is now water under the bridge and we are looking ahead to the next encounter,” he said.
