Sav­age as­sault of ref­eree bar­baric

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

ED­I­TOR — The as­sault of the ref­eree in a di­vi­sion one soc­cer derby at Chino­timba Sta­dium,Vic­to­ria Falls, in­volv­ing Ama­ga­gasi Foot­ball Club and Vic­to­ria Falls Tigers is greatly un­couth and has no place in foot­ball.

I was dis­ap­pointed that a young as­pir­ing foot­baller vi­ciously clob­bered the oth­er­wise impressive ref­eree, Mr Bekezela Makeka, for de­servedly giv­ing him march­ing or­ders for a sec­ond book­able of­fence.

Lethukuthaba Mathe, was in­censed by the red card and sav­agely punched Makeka in full view of a ca­pac­ity crowd who had thronged the sta­dium to watch foot­ball not a box­ing en­counter.

Mathe is not fit to be a foot­ball player judg­ing by the way he was un­leash­ing a salvo of blows to the ref­eree. I sug­gest that he should try wrestling or ven­ture into box­ing where he will cer­tainly amass a lot of sil­ver­ware than in soc­cer.

Stern mea­sures should be vis­ited on Mathe as a way of cur­tail­ing such un­ruly be­hav­iour in the beau­ti­ful game of foot­ball. I sub­mit with­out fear or favour that all those who were in­volved should face the full wrath of the law.

Do some­thing please . Vic­tor “The Bro­ken Gas­ket” Sibanda, Vic­to­ria Falls
