Zimbabwe Warriors cry foul in South Africa over unsuitable training venues

ZIMBABWE’s Warriors have been forced to look for a better training pitch in South Africa after rejecting what had been offered.

Norman Mapeza’s charges are preparing for the clash against Bafana Bafana in the penultimate round of the 2022 world cup qualifiers at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg on Thursday night.

Warriors manager Wellington Mpandare said that of the two venues they had been given, none of them was suitable.

“We were given two venues but one had tall grass and the other one had artificial turf so we didn’t want to take chances, so last night the coach and I had to look for a training pitch and we found the one we are using now,” he said.

“It also happened in Ghana last month, we had problems acquiring even a private pitch, I guess it’s African football, we are used to it now, so there are no complaints,” he said.

The Warriors held their first training session at the Sandton sports club and are scheduled to use the same pitch for afternoon training while waiting for the South African Football Association to fix the venue issue.
