Highlanders chief executive officer Nhlanhla Dube has explained why their goalkeeper Ariel Sibanda was putting on a NetOne branded warm-up T-Shirt when Bosso beat Black Rhinos 2-1 yesterday.

While many were amazed to see Sibanda do duty in the Orange T-Shirt that is usually spotted by Airtime vendors, Dube said:“Black Rhinos kit clashed with our Goalkeeper’s kit. Ordinarily, Rhinos were supposed to change their kit, but they had a white kit which clashed with our infield players’ kit.

“The match officials asked us to compromise, and we agreed all in the interest of the game. This is why Ariel wore his sponsor branded t-shirt on top of his thermal undergarment.”

Highlanders won the match 2-1 courtesy of goals from Godfrey Makaruse and Gabriel Nyoni. Rhinos got its consolation through Lot Chiwunga.
