Dynamos team manager Richard Chihoro says to his knowledge Dynamos did not appeal against the Red Card issued to striker Christian Epoupa.

The Cameroonian prolific goal scorer was red carded during the Battle of Zimbabwe following a headbutt on Highlanders’ defender Peter Muduhwa in the dyin minutes of the game that ended 1-1.

In a sudden twist of Events, ZIFA announced the nullification of the Red Card citing deliberations made by the Referees committe on the matter, without shedding more light.

Dynamos team manager in an interview with the Herald said Dynamos did not make an appeal.

“We spent the whole of today (yesterday) locked in a meeting with the executive,’’ he said

“Nothing to do with the red card was discussed and I only heard that the red-card has been nullified late in the afternoon after the meeting.

“I don’t know if any member of our executive had made an appeal, but I can confirm that nothing to that effect was discussed in the meeting we had the whole afternoon.

“On Sunday, I did not see what actually transpired in that box because I was concentrating on looking at the player who was about to take the corner kick. I only saw the referee (Ncube) flashing the card to our striker (Ntouba).

“So, on the nullification of the card, hear me right, I have no comment,” said Chihoro.

ZIFA’s decision has left the football nation divided with many questioning tne logic behind rescinding a Red Card for a Headbutt.
