AMBITIOUS Premier Soccer League side, Ngezi Platinum Stars, are reported to be in turmoil amid revelations that player indiscipline has gone out of hand following the resignation of head coach, Rodwell Dhlakama.
Dhlakama went on a leave of absence in early February, before he resigned as head coach on the 28th, with Takesure Chiragwi taking over as interim coach.
While the club did not reveal the reasons behind all these decisions, the ZBC News has it on good authority that the coach was accused of player transfer corruption, among other issues.
The situation seems to have gone from bad to worse with impeccable sources confirming that some senior players loyal to the departed coach are causing discontent at the club.
The club has won only two matches so far this season and has somewhat stuttered after a lot was expected from them following massive recruitment during the past two transfer windows.
While the club was not in a position to comment on the issue, Madamburo will be hoping for better fortunes when they host Cranborne Bullets this Saturday at Baobab Stadium.
Elsewhere, Bulawayo Chiefs make the long Journey to Kariba to take on ZPC Kariba at Nyamhunga Stadium.
Log leaders Chicken Inn will visit the capital for a date against Taurai Mangwiro’s Harare City at the National Sports Stadium on Saturday, while Black Rhinos will play FC Platinum at Sakubva Stadium.
The last match of the day will see Caps United who picked up their first win of the season last weekend square off with Bulawayo City at Barbourfields Stadium.
Sunday will see troubled Highlanders take on inform Herentals at Barbourfields Stadium, while Dynamos host Tenax at the National Sports Stadium, with Whawha entertaining Yadah at Ascot Stadium in Gweru.
The weekend fixtures conclude with high-riding Manica Diamonds battling it out with Triangle at Sakubva Stadium in Mutare.
