Magaya fumes at PSL, quits funding Yadah

Prophet Walter Magaya has reportedly stopped financing Yadah Stars in protest over what he believes as unfair treatment by the PSL bosses.

According to The Herald, Magaya made the decision following a sensational fallout with the league’s leadership over the way the club has been crippled by the absence of players on national duty with the Warriors.

Forward Leeroy Mavunga and defender Jimmy Dzingai are the two Yadah players in the Warriors squad. Byron Madzokere was injured while in camp and the club’s leadership asked the PSL bosses on Thursday for a postponement of their match against Bulawayo City because, they argued, they had lost three players to this national cause.

However, the PSL turned down their pleas, prompting Magaya to pull out.

“I quit…be blessed,” he told the newspaper.

“We have three key players whom we have lost because of national duty and we wanted the PSL to postpone our game but they refused.

“If the team travels to Bulawayo then it’s the supporters taking them there and not me and I pray that ZIFA and (Philip) Chiyangwa use their power to stop this madness because we are destroying the game.”

Meanwhile, in the event Yadah Stars disintegrate, the championship race could be affected as the PSL will be forced to nullify the results of all the 14 matches which the club has played this season.
