Asiagate players given second chance



The players who have paid their fines in connection with the ‘Asiagate’ match-fixing scandal have been given a second chance to represent the national team, the Warriors.

The Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) have told coach Klause Dieter Pagels, who was appointed the position in November last year, that the players who made financial restitution are available for selection should the German require their services.

Jonathan Mashangaize, the chief executive officer of Zifa, confirmed the news.

“Yes we have said that. They are cleared and why not give them a second chance? They are Zimbabweans and if the coach feels he needs them he can select them. It is all up to him now,” added Mashangaize.

Two of the players that have paid their fines are South Africa-based pair Gilbert Mapemba and Tafazwa Rusike. Defender Mapemba plies his trade with MTN8 champions Moroka Swallows, while Rusike campaigns for fellow Premier Soccer League side Ajax Cape Town.
