The team’s poor showing against Gunners and Kiglon last week, according to Chiweshe, was a result of sabotage by some of his players who want him fired.
Dynamos and Motor Action are fighting to land the championship and are currently tied on 63 points with a game left before the season closes. Motor Action is on top of the league due to a superior goal difference.
Chiweshe, however, declined to name the players, save to say he has since dropped them from his line-up. The coach’s accusations are likely to cause a stir in the DeMbare camp ahead of the crunch BancABC final showdown with nemeses Caps United at the National Sports Stadium tomorrow and their last league match of the season next week.
Chiweshe is battling to save his job with suggestions from the DeMbare camp that if the team fails to land the championship, the coach will be shown the door.
The coach said that he started to smell a rat last week following some questionable point blank misses by his players in the two matches against Kiglon and Gunners.
This then prompted him to flash back and analyse where his team faltered in some of the drawn and lost matches, and concluded that some of the players where performing far below par.
“It’s shocking that some players can go this far,” said Chiweshe. “I only started to ask myself whether my team’s poor form was normal last week. Then I picked that some of my senior players are only contributing a fraction of their capacity. I then decided to drop them from the team and we have won the last two matches and the race for the league championship is well and alive.”
Among some of the players who featured regularly in the team and were dropped in the last two matches against FC Victoria and Douglas Warriors are Murape Murape, David Kutyauripo and Brighton Tuwaya.
