Nkhatha saddened by Asiagate
Zimbabwean striker Kingston Nkhatha admits that he has been left feeling “sad” about the Asiagate scandal currently rocking his homeland.
The forward currently plies his trade at South African Premier Soccer League giants Kaizer Chiefs but is facing a possible two-year ban should FIFA endorse the punishments handed out by the Zimbabwe Football Association.
Nkhatha’s opportunity to represent his country once again is in serious doubt due to the scandal, with ZIFA having disbanded the former national team.
It would not only be a loss for the player though, as he has been in superb form this season with Chiefs and recently netted a brace off the bench in their 3-0 win over Golden Arrows.
The forward does not want to focus on the scandal though, saying that he would rather keep his mind on his club at present.
“You know it is sad to talk about the situation. It is not a good situation so we have to forget about that and focus on my game here,” he said.
“I really don’t want to be talking about these things, but yes as I have said I am focusing on my game at Chiefs.”
Regarding his strikes against Arrows on Tuesday night, he added: “I was glad that I scored the brace but it was a team work. We did well as a team and as a striker I have to do my job and score.”
