Chipezeze Engages Lawyer Over Match-fixing Allegations
Warriors goalkeeper, Elvis Chipezeze, revealed that he has approached his lawyer in a bid to clear his name of accusations of match-fixing at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
The 29-year-old, who plays for Baroka FC in the Absa Premiership, made high profile errors in the high stakes match against the DRC, with Zimbabwe being eliminated from the tournament following a 4-0 drubbing.
As a result of Chipezeze’s errors, many people suspected that he had been bribed.
Speaking to Limpopo Sports Zone after returning to his base in South Africa, Chipezeze said:
You can’t sell games at the biggest stage of the competition where you need to make a name for yourself. I don’t even support that thing (match-fixing).
I have been talking to my Lawyer and he was telling me he is going to look into the issue maybe see what he can do to clear my name.
Chipezeze believes that the DRC match will not be his last to feature for the national team. He said:
It was probably the worse game of my life but that was not the last time for me playing for the national team.
