ABSA Premiership side Baroka FC coach Wedson Nyirenda has come to the defence of Warriors goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze following his howlers which gave DRC goals in an Africa Cup of Nations match last month.
Chipezeze was a late replacement for first-choice goalkeeper George Chogova who puled out with a hamstring injury during the warm-up.
Nyirenda blamed the Warriors defence for their failure to react quickly which resulted in goals. Speaking to the Sowetan, Nyirenda said:

He did not expect to start the match after the first choice George Chigova got injured during the warm-up. You could see in the way he conceded.
If you look at the first goal, where he fumbled the ball, where were the defenders? Two strikers from Congo were the ones who fought for that ball. The defence should have covered.
