Warriors coach Sunday ‘Mhofu’ Chidzambwa has opened up on why he delayed in replacing captain Knowledge Musona even though the Smiling Assasin was not having the best of games.


Musona was replaced by Talent Chawapiwa in the 85th minute during Friday’s defeat to hosts Egypt and the coach has explained his decision.


“It’s only that he is an influential player who can do anything anytime and we thought maybe he will do that, sadly he didn’t. Upon reflection maybe we erred by delaying to effect a change,” Chidzambwa said according to ZiFM sports caster Mike Madoda.


The Warriors’ next game is against table-topping Uganda on Wednesday and Chidzambwa’s charges will know that anything but a win will jeopardise their chances of progressing to the next round.
