So when you see the video of a Zambian goalkeeper coach walking towards the goal frame with a container of fluid in hand, you would be forgiven for thinking “good to see the Zambian football authorities taking the necessary precautions to stop the spread. of this terrible disease ”.
however, You are wrong …
Charles Chileshe, the Zambian Super League Forest Rangers goaltender coach, is accused of sprinkling an unknown substance around the goal frame ahead of the Forest Rangers’ clash with Prison Leopards, before urinate on the goal line… you don’t have to reread this sentence, you read it correctly – urinate. Take a pee!
The coach was caught on camera as he pounded a bottle of liquid around the goal, before turning his back on the camera as he finished his routine by tapping the post.
Chileshe has since been sanctioned, with the Zambian FA issuing a statement condemning his actions.
“The Zambian Football Association has suspended Forest Rangers Football Club goalkeeper coach Charles Chileshe for unsportsmanlike conduct during a Week 13 Super Division match between Prison Leopards and Forest Rangers at President Stadium in Kabwe, ”said the statement released by the New Daily.
“His actions have undoubtedly brought the name of the game into disrepute and therefore we have no choice but to suspend Chileshe’s registration for the 2020/2021 season and his case will be decided by the appropriate court. of the FAZ.
“This means Chileshe cannot function as an official for your club in any capacity until his case is settled.”
The coach’s exact intentions are unknown. Whether the manager’s actions were done in the hopes of bringing good luck to his team or just plunging the opposing keeper into the p * ss, we’ll likely never know.
Regardless, it had little impact as the Forest Rangers were beaten 2-0. What to ap * sser.
