After being knocked out of the African Nations Championship (Chan) by Namibia, the Zimbabwe Warriors have failed a complaint with the match commissioner. The Warriors are alleging that the Namibians used foreign based players something which goes against the rules as Chan is exclusively for players plying their trades in the domestic leagues.
Team manager wellington Mpandare told the Daily News:
We notified the commissioner and I’m sure he will take it up with Caf as per procedure. We got wind of this development during the first leg in Windhoek we tried to raise concern but we could not file the report due to logistical challenges and the match official left soon after the match before we had done anything.
It will be difficult to try and get the result in our favour now and looking at the match, the Namibians definitely wanted it more than us, they won and they deserve to go through to the next round.
But if they are found wanting in trying to cheat the system then they will have to face the music and allow justice to prevail.
