CHITEMBWE & NDIRAYA'S DISRESPECT FOR LOGARUSIC PARTLY TO BLAME FOR WARRIORS LOSSES AT CHAN - PLAYER SPEAKS


The Zimbabwe national team's perfomance at the African Nations Championship (CHAN) were partly caused by the team's assistants, Lloyd Chitembwe and Tonderai Ndiraya who are said to have had openly disrespected the head coach Zdravko Logarusic at the tournament.

A source in the Zimbabwean squad, a player, told a publication that Chitembwe openly criticises Logarusic in the presence of the squad and also takes advantage of the Croatian's inability to understand Shona to draw the squad against him.

The reliable source told Soccer24 that:

I don't know if sabotage is the word but the assistant coaches do not respect Loga and that obviously results in players not respecting him too.

Lodza (Chitembwe) in particular, is not a fan of Loga. He criticizes his methods every time and even once whispered that he is not good enough to coach the national team.

Chitembwe takes advantage of Loga's inability to understand Shona and condemns him even his presence, he just doesn't believe the Croatian is the right man for the job.

The Warriors player, who spoke to Soccer24 on condition of anonymity, claimed that there are divisions within the squad caused by Chitembwe as he tends to ostracise individuals he thinks are good enough. He added:

Ask some other players if what I'm saying isn't true, the regrettable divisions among the players are traceable back to Lodza.
He believes some of the players selected by Loga are not good enough to be called and he is hostile to them while very pleasant to the ones he prefers. It's a big problem.

Zimbabwe lost all matches in Cameroon at the CHAN2021 Tournament in which it was seeded in (Group A): Cameroon (1 : 0), Burkina Faso (3 : 1) and Mali (1 : 0).
