Ngezi Platinum Stars coach Rodwell Dhlakama has vowed that veteran midfielder, Devon Chafa will not be playing football for the club after he allegedly played social matches in Harare in violation of his coach’s directive and Premier Soccer League (PSL) rules.
Speaking to NewsDay Sport, Dhlakama, a disciplinarian and a teacher by profession, said Chafa’s conduct was a display of total disrespect for him as the coach. Dhlakama said:
What I can tell you is that I don’t want to talk about what the club will say about this, but at the level of coach and player, I think I have had enough of him.
Are you in Zimbabwe?

Just imagine, I had to seek permission to travel (to Harare) to look for him when I heard these reports.
When I saw him, he denied involvement and I stressed to him that it was unacceptable and must stop forthwith. He has shown disrespect for me as a coach.
I can assure you he won’t play at Ngezi again. He has to look for another team. He (Chafa) had not played for us since he joined as he went straight to the national team, but I don’t see him playing a part for us.
