RONALD PFUMBIDZAI says he has a very good relationship with his coach Lloyd Chitembwe and regrets his conduct on Wednesday when he refused to shake the gaffer in a fit of anger after being substituted in the dying moments of their win over FC Platinum at Rufaro.

The roving wing-back, who is joining South African Premiership side Bloemfontein Celtic, exploded with anger after Chitembwe cautioned him for not acting to instructions, to pass the ball rather than keep possession, in the

Premier League champions Chelsea suffered an embarrassing home defeat on the first Saturday of the new season, having two men sent off as unfancied Burnley beat them 3-2 at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte’s disjointed side struggled from the early stages when captain Gary Cahill was dismissed for a lunging tackle and they found themselves three-nil down at halftime to a team who gained only seven points away from home all last season.

Wales international Sam Vokes scored two

OCEAN MUSHURE is currently the best footballer in the domestic Premiership, by a country mile, and in every game for a Dynamos side he is leading with distinction, both as a captain and a goal-scoring hero, he appears to be on a mission to convert those who argue otherwise.

Since being handed the captaincy at DeMbare, Mushure has been a revelation, a tower of strength for the Glamour Boys and a leader who has been leading his men from the front.

When he starred for the Warriors at

IT’S the month of August and African football has every reason to celebrate as the continent looks back at what was indeed an august achievement by a Zimbabwean.

On Wednesday 19 August 1992 at 9:10pm, Zimbabwe’s celebrated former Warriors captain Peter “Nsukuzonke” Ndlovu, made history by being the first African footballer to play in the English Premier League (EPL) while turning out for Coventry City.

Romario won it in 1994. It was the turn of Ronaldo in 1996 and 1997, and again in 2002. Rivaldo was chosen in 1999, Ronaldinho in 2004 and 2005, and Kaka in 2007.

In a 13-year spell, five Brazilians won the FIFA World Player of the Year Award on eight separate occasions, which set the bar for subsequent generations of their compatriots.

The career of Neymar will be seen – by himself and other Brazilians – as falling short of potential if he does not get his hands on the

ON November 13, 1861, an American priest, Reverend M R Watkinson sent a letter to the United States Treasury, petitioning the department to add a powerful statement that recognised “Almighty God in some form on our coins’’.

Watkinson’s argument was that this could be used “as a way of relieving the people from the ignominy of heathenism”, itself a barbaric practice where the presence of God, and the need to worship him, did not exist in their lives.

KHAMA BILLIAT has turned to King David’s prayer as he battles a vicious onslaught launched on him by the South African media where the Warriors talisman is being portrayed as a hopelessly wayward footballer whose career is dramatically veering off course because of questionable professional- ism.

There are even mounting calls from the media for his club Mamelodi Sundowns to dump him from their ranks amid reports Billiat has allegedly become toxic to the dressing room because of

CAPS United’s return to the Castle Lager Premiership was a horror show, as bad as their last dance in the top-flight league, as the champions crashed at the National Sports Stadium last night.

The champions, who lost 0-2 to Yadah Stars in their last home assignment, slumped to another defeat yesterday as How Mine became the first club to defeat the Green Machine in a league match at their fortress in Lloyd Chitembwe’s current spell as coach.

BAD boy Roderick Mutuma has dumped Highlanders and headed back to the capital to join Yadah Stars FC barely six months after signing for Bosso from Dynamos.

Sources close to the player and Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries run outfit last night said the player penned a $4 000 six-month deal with Prophet Walter Magaya, who immediately transferred the money into the lanky forward’s account and also promised him a monthly salary of $1 000.

“Mutuma is no longer a

A HARARE magistrate yesterday cancelled a warrant of arrest issued against Zimbabwean football champions Caps United’s former club captain, Moses Muchenje.

Muchenje (25), who appeared before magistrate Ruramayi Chitumbura, had been ordered to pay the money by June 8, but failed

WARRIORS’ interim coach Norman Mapeza says he didn’t have a fallout with Walter Magaya on Sunday night and is deeply hurt that his team’s flying start to their 2019 AFCON campaign has been relegated by the negativity of a rift between him and the football-mad prophet.

Social media has been buzzing that Mapeza and Magaya fell out, in spectacular fashion, on Sunday night. But the coach, who had a lengthy chat with the prophet yesterday, said he was deeply troubled

CAPS United might have charmed many neutrals with a solid, and at times quality, performance in their victory over Algerian giants USM Alger on Wednesday, but that CAF Champions League adventure came at a huge cost for the Green Machine amid revelations the club suffered huge losses.

The Harare giants do not have a sponsor to bankroll their commitments on the continent, which come at a huge financial cost to the club's owner Farai Jere, and the joy of their 2-1 victory over the

Football can be really be cruel. That’s exactly how Prophet Walter Magaya will probably look at his team's clash against visiting Chicken Inn yesterday. If football was all about church and the bible, he would have simply instructed his followers not to humiliate their 'papa' anymore, and maybe it would have worked.

A share of the spoils could have sufficed for both teams, as no team deserved the full points really. Both teams played like bunch of primary school boys

Prophet Magaya is in trouble with Phillip Chiyangwa's management as Zifa has warned Castle Lager Premier Soccer League side Yadah FC owned by Prophet Magaya over flouting club licensing regulations by playing their match against Bantu Rovers without qualified coaching personnel on the bench.

Magaya suspended his technical team, which is headed by Jairos Tapera, ahead of the match.

PROPHET Walter Magaya has taken full responsibility for the seven-goal humiliation that the Premiership newboys Yadah Stars suffered at the hands of strugglers Bantu Rovers in Bulawayo on Saturday that has sent social media into a frenzy as rival fans feast on the club’s spectacular fall after a promising start to life in the top-flight league.
