DYNAMOS have put the chaos triggered by ZIFA into context by telling the Premier Soccer League that their players are on HOLIDAY.

This has forced the PSL to postpone their match against Manica Diamonds that was scheduled for Gibbo tomorrow.

DeMbare argued they had sent their players home, with some having travelled as far as Bulawayo to be with their families, after the PSL announced the weekend fixture had been postponed.

This was after ZIFA LIED that they had organised a friendly international against Botswana.

However, when the GHOST GAME was cancelled, and the league matches reinstated, DeMbare said their men were on HOLIDAY.

“Our players were then released by the club and some of them had to travel outside of Harare to be with their families,” wrote Dynamos chief executive, Jonathan Mashingaidze.

“It is next to impossible to have our players regrouping and train for a day for the rearranged fixture which had been officially called off due to national team assignment falling under FIFA dates for such assignments.

“May you kindly have our fixture rearranged so as not to clash with the national team assignments.” The Glamour Boys vice-chairman Vincent Chawonza yesterday said the club was relieved by the decision to postpone the game.

“Players like Kelvin Moyo, Elvis Moyo, Donald Dzvinyai and Shadreck Nyahwa had already travelled to Bulawayo to be with their families.

“So, we were in a real crisis but now we can breathe and we can plan properly,” said Chawonza.
