Refer to the story, “APR ban own coach for five matches” which appeared in this publication on February 4.
What happened on the day of the game in question is called passion, and we don’t have to blow it out of proportion.
More so, what I don’t understand is the ban from training sessions where the club is preparing for crucial games against Police FC and arch-rivals Rayon Sports which are very important because those teams are the main contenders of the Turbo King Football League this year. Mukura VC, which is the other fixture the coach will not be able to prepare his club for, because he is serving a ban, is a big deal too.
Three matches are a lot without a head coach, that’s nine points that the team could potentially lose if they mess things up because of the absence of the coach. Nine points is the exact gap between the first and the sixth on the league log. We are already in the second half of the league and a five-match ban is roughly 1/3 of the remaining matches to play, which leaves little chances for the team to recover the loss. Seeing how competitive the league is this year, this might cost APR FC the title.
