Speaking to The Herald, Dynamos team manager Richard Chihoro said as far as he knew, his team had not appealed against Christian Epoupa Ntouba’s red card.
We spent the whole of today (yesterday) locked in a meeting with the executive. 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
Dynamos Football Club is a Zimbabwean based professional football club which plays in the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League. It is arguably the most decorated football club in Zimbabwe. The club has won several accolades locally, and has performed at various international tournaments and commands a huge support base of more than a million fans. Synonymous with its blue and white regalia, Dynamos commands great influence in as far as Zimbabwean football is concerned. Their so-called carpet football which involves a continuous flow of the ball coupled with accurate passing in the field of play has over time earned them the title 'Glamour Boys'. Local football fanatics usually prefer to call the team DeMbare due to the team's attachment to their traditional home ground Rufaro Stadium which is located in the iconic suburb of Mbare in Harare. Rufaro Stadium which is a stone through away from the Matapi and Tagarika hostels of Mbare suburbs has resulted in the intimate, affectionate and emotional attachment between the team and the residence not only of Mbare but of the whole city of Harare.
