A letter written to ZIFA president Philip Chiyangwa shows the Dynamos appealed against Christian Epoupa Ntouba’s red card contrary to team manager Richard Chihoro’s comment.
The letter reads:
We write to you complaining about the red card given to our player Ntouba Epoupa. We feel the referee was not protecting our player from rough play he was encountering hence he ended up retaliating. He was being punched off the ball and he has a swollen left jaw. We therefore seek your assistance to reverse that red card decision.
