Akbay accuses Highlanders executives of lying to him after he loses 4th match
Highlanders coach Erol Akbay yesterday accused the team’s executive of lying to him after his fourth consecutive defeat yesterday to Chapungu where the team lost 1-0. He said that the team’s executive lied that they had money to buy quality players.
In December when I was going home (Netherlands), I asked the executive if there was money to buy players and they said yes, don’t worry there is money enough for you. I called them when I was home and they again said money was enough for me to get good players, but in January when I came back, they told me there was no more money to buy players. We are missing good strikers. I gave them a lot of names that I wanted, but I was told there was no money. This executive does not want good strikers in our team because they did nothing about the players which I wanted. Highlanders have a crisis, not me. I know what I am doing and my heart is very clean. I know where the problem is and it’s the strike force.
However, Highlanders acting chairman Modern Ngwenya replied, saying it was not true that they promised Akbay money to buy players.
