Chicken Inn pull out of Africa



Chicken Inn finished third in the 2012 Castle Lager League season and are set to take part in the Caf Confederations Cup next season.

Due to the fact that Highlanders, who finished second, are serving a suspension by Caf and won’t participate in Africa tournament, Chicken Inn were given the spot by Premier Soccer League (PSL) to represent Zimbabwe in the event.

But after proper considerations, the team management has decided not to participate in the continental competition this year. The club has said that it is good to play in Africa but this is not the right time for them to do that.

Team chairman Lifa Ncube told Supersport.com that it is not all about finances, but also lack of experience on the part of the team.

“We don’t think this is the right time. We are immature to participate in such a big tournament,” he said.

“We need the experience and to grow in the local scene first before we can think of competing in Africa.

“We need to have players who can endure the challenge of playing in Africa. So for that reason we have decided not to play in Africa. But in the future we will definitely compete,” Ncube said.
