Was Pasuwa Right in Dismissing Warriors Trio?

In an effort to instill a culture of discipline in the warriors, Coach Kalisto Pasuwa has dismissed Dynamos midfielder Ronald Chitiyo and the Caps United duo of Hardlife Zvirekwi and Justice Jangano for failing to turn up for camp on time.

The Warriors are preparing to face Lesotho in an African Nations Championships (Chan) football encounter at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday.

The biggest question now lies on whether the move is justifiable or not. Let’s talk soccer, the art of winning a match is about having a competitive side besides just having numbers. Quantity is incomparable to quality hence the latter outwits the former.

Yes, the coach is right in firing the trio since it wasn’t their first time to commit such a crime. According to reports, Pasuwa said they had decided to take radical action against the trio because it was not the first time that the duo of Chitiyo and Zvirekwi had responded late to national team call ups.

The two have exuded that stubbornness attitude when the warriors grouped in preparation for the Comoros and Guinea games. The soft spoken Warriors gaffer said he felt their attitude is negative and it could rub off onto the younger players, hence the decision to quarantine the trio.

In all honesty and fairness, the coach cannot be arbitrated in any way, he is innocent. In fact if I was Pasuwa would extent that judgment to three games to instill a culture of discipline in the team. Players should not feel better than others, team work is all about collective efforts not individual and hence no player is better than the other.

The trio exuded a bad attitude, a sign of big headedness. Chitiyo is undoubtedly the best midfielder in the country so is Zvirekwi at the back. But why did these three professionals behave unprofessionally? Remember, it’s not their first time; they did it when the warriors grouped in preparation for the Comoros and Guinea games, meaning this was their 3rd time. Oooh my word, Pasuwa could not stomach this so is the writer of this article.

Okay let me try to turn down my tone and get focused. Yes, the coach might be exonerated but looking at the bigger picture this might cost the warriors. Zvirekwi and Chitiyo are tried and tested players, they can change the complexion of the game, infact their performances in the field of play is  uncontested.

Dismissing them might cost us dearly especially against the background that we draw against Guinea chiefly because we lacked a creative midfielder in the mould of Chitiyo.

Chitiyo’s absence was felt and now the coach has decided to drop him for maybe an untested blood. Is this not going to cost us as a nation, i would have loved to see Pasuwa giving the trio a last warning than dismissing them. I am not belittling the three who will fill in the vacant posts but my concern is on experience.

Let’s hear your comments, we are the owners of the game like Mabika always say…
