Highlanders’ leadership is reportedly contemplating to alert Gibson Mahachi, a manager to Knox Mutizwa, on the player’s unbecoming behaviour.
The Bidvest Wits bound forward, was reportedly turned out for training drunk while on the previous day at training had a fallout with the club’s assistant coach Amini Soma Phiri.
At a training session at Luveve Stadium a club executive was overhead telling the club’s technical director that: “I think we have to talk to Gibson Mahachi…..We cannot tolerate that…..”
In response the technical director Cosmas Zulu partly said : “I even told him that what he did at training was bad. I told him I didn’t want to kill his career….Lets tell Mahachi.”
We have on good authority that Mutizwa,in frustration on adjudged to being offside at training he kicked out the ball and when Soma Phiri who happens to be uncle instructed him to go a and pick the ball he refused.
Asked about the incident at the club’s press conference Bosso coach Erol Akbay said: “We cannot say its indiscipline from some of our senior players including one of our key players Knox. I think the fall out he had with Amini is normal. I am a coach and I took it as a family matter. Knox and Amini are related and as such I will not say much.”
Akbay also play down Mutizwa being drunk and suggested he would have been dropped if that had been the case.
Mutizwa is set to join Bidvest Wits next month ahead of the 2016/2017 Absa Premiership showdown. He currently jointly leads the scoring charts with 4 goals this season.
