WARRIORS star Kuda Mahachi has been criticised by a number of fans after he reportedly went live on Instagram yesterday complaining about failing to get game time at the ongoing Afcon tournament.
Mahachi, who recently wedded, is reported to have suggested that it was better for him to be on honeymoon than being in Egypt where he is not being used.
There were claims that he deleted the post.
However, Zimbabwean journalists in Egypt went on social media to tell the public what Mahachi had done.
The Orlando Pirates forward did not play in the opening match and failed to make it into the starting lineup Uganda.
While there were suggestions, later in the day, that Mahachi might be a victim of dirty politics, fans had already called for his ouster from camp on the basis of indiscipline.
Below are some of the comments by fans on social media:
Sounds like prima donna tendencies by Kuda Mahachi. No player is guaranteed a starting berth. All players must submit to the coach’s authority. Sure, he is tactically inept, but team selection is still Sunday’s prerogative. Accept that or refuse the call-up to the national team. LASHIAS NCUBE
Disrespectful to his coach and his teammates – Mhofu should immediately send him off on his honeymoon. MIKE MADODA
The coach ‘selected’ him to be part of the team for a reason and when the opportune time come he will be deployed; it has only been one game after all. Be that as it may, it also shows the passion and the commitment to serve but I believe he could have used a different platform. RASHID SALIMU
That’s being unprofessional to informally publish his grievances on social media without the permission from his bosses. NATION MUDZITIRWA
He is crazy. He must be sent back home. If Mesut Ozil can be benched who is Kuda Mahachi. UNDER40CEO
Mahachi azvikanya because Chawapiwa who’s in starting 11 isn’t a 90 mins player, so Kuda had chance to come on after 70 mins & convince the coach to start him against DRC. I am still waiting for him to take the same stance regarding a similar situation at Pirates. BRIGHTON CHIWOLA
Haachatozomupinde. ndookudii ikoko. agdzikwa kangani isu takatamba one game soo unprofessional. SHAMIE
Ngakagare panze nonsense…raatamba rinotyisa nderip..vamwe vakapenga varikuenda Europe ,vamwe vari Europe n on the bench…hakusi kumaboozer ..ngakaende ku honeymoon..rubbishhhhhhhhh. ARCHIE MUSKWE
But a professional player doesn’t throw tantrums on social media, he is a bench warmer at Pirates but he takes everything in stride, Mhofu must flex his muscles. MABHINDA
That’s disrespect to the coach, his team mates and a whole nation isu tiri pakati pezhowe-zhowe neUganda. Ngaabva angobaya kuhoneymoon kwacho. DZIVA THE AQUARIAN
Bhora raMahachi kuti richipo here? I dont why akaenda in the first place coz haatokwane kuma warriors kwacho. GONO CHIRANDU GARATIDYE
Not good for team dynamics, Divock Origi sat on the Liverpool bench longer than him and when he chances came he performed in crucial games. Sit on that bench and when called upon perform. ROMS
We have very good players who are humble and are ready to wait for their chances… Let it be his last time with the Warriors if he thinks he is much special than all those on the bench and those left behind. FARIE.B
SEND Mahachi home so that he can go kuHoneyMoon. We do not want people who act in an unprofessional manner. Instead of fighting for a starting place we are hearing this. TONDE
