The former African coach of the year accused a Baroka FC player of taking a leaf out of Chipezeze’s book for winding down the clock when the two sides met in the third last game of the 2019/20 season.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper, however, does not believe he is doing anything wrong as he is only managing the game to help his side get a positive result.

“It’s not antics at all,” Chipezeze was quoted by CAJ News Africa.

“Rather, I call it game management. As a captain, sometimes, if I sense danger coming from our opponents, I have to be smart, tactical, strategic and devise manoeuvres to manage the game.

“It’s not always good to be dictated play by your opponents. We should rather counter their strategy. I call that game management.”
