Leonard Tsipa issues apology

CAPS United striker Leonard Tsipa has apologised for his head butt and subsequent red card against Highlanders at the weekend.

Tsipa was sent off in the 56th minute of the game an incident that saw the game swing in Highlanders’ favour. Highlanders took full advantage of the extra man and scored through Bruce Kangwa to win the match and go top of the standings.

Tsipa admitted his actions cost his side on Sunday.

Speaking to the Herald Tsipa said he was sorry for his actions but admits he got frustrated after Muduhwa abused him verbally.“During the game he (Muduhwa) was abusive uttering unprintable words about my parents that I cannot repeat said Tsipa.

Tsipa said Muduhwa abuse was compounded by the fact that his (Tsipa) mother is not well at the moment.

“I failed to control my temper and realised immediately that I had done wrong and I would like to assure everyone that it will not happen again.

“I would like to say sorry to supporters and everyone at the club added Tsipa. CAPS United assistant coach Mark Mathe said the club did not condone such behaviour.
