'80 Per Cent Of Zimbabwean Players Are On Drugs'

'80 Per Cent Of Zimbabwean Players Are On Drugs'

Bulawayo City coach Philani “Beefy” Ncube has claimed that 80 per cent of local footballers abuse drugs, specifically Broncleer.

Ncube argued that it is unfair for fans to demand coaches to be sacked when players’ performances are being affected by illicit drugs. Said Ncube:

I can tell you that almost 80 per cent of Zimbabwean players are on drugs. I will not mention names but when we played Highlanders there was a player from their end who was clearly under the influence.

He was just sleeping. I know for a fact that he takes drugs. Then you hear people saying the coach must go.

The biggest problem is that some of the fans are selling these substances to the boys.

Yet they are the same people you will hear saying Mandla Mpofu, Joey Antipas or Beefy must go.

Ncube suggested that the abuse of drugs by footballers may have increased during the COVID-19 induced suspension of football for more than a year.

He said the Premier Soccer League (PSL) should have brought in psychologists to help footballers “and assure them that there is life after or during COVID-19”.

Ncube urged the PSL and Footballers Union of Zimbabwe to take action before the situation gets out of hand. He said:

These boys have taken drugs as part of their lifestyle. The effects of their drug-taking tendencies will be so negative in the next four months.

PSL and Footballers Union of Zimbabwe have to take action before the situation escalates.

I can tell you these boys can pass a COVID-19 test but not a doping test.

The sad part is these things are even a trend at the junior level which is sad.

Soccer(infact Sport) in this nation is in shambles. There is need for an openess towards people's different views on the way forward. Authorities involved should engage in talks with various stakeholders to ensure that this situation is dealt with for the long term.

Tribalism is witchcraft,an act of worshipping Satan It is a code of conduct of the Illuminati.Tribalists have a 666 symbol in their spiritual forehead (mentality).

This is a revelation for you tribalists and racists.You are never at peace and will never be at peace.Adolf Hitler,Idi Amin, Robert Mugabe ,Osama Bin Laden and a bunch of American Presidents were never at peace within themselves.Currently in Ukraine there were manifestations of racial phobia, are they themselves at peace?Our Zimbabwean President ED Mnangagwa is in the route of negotiating with the victims of atrocities committed before,he knows by so doing Peace within himself will prevail by the will of God.

Young people do not walk in the path of sinners,do you know that when you provoke the Holy Spirit to anger there is no forgiveness, never.Jesus Christ warned us not to curse our brothers and sisters to avoid hell fire.

No to tribalism ladies and gentlemen, we're one people. Did you know tribalism is worse than racism ? Let't all focus on the Pindula story and avoid tribalism at all times.

@Vybz,the real one, i agree with you. Seeing black people fighting amongst themselves is disgusting and shameful.
Shameless tribalistic fools, its a shame

Tribalism has always been Zanu pf's secret weapon,it has been their useful weapon in their divide and conquer strategy ,they used tribalism in the 1980 until the early 1990s ,during that time the main opposition was Zapu which had a strong ndebele support base but was received and supported all over the country including mashonaland Joshua Nkomo was loved by both ndebeles and shonas and came to be known as father zimbabwe he also had a shona nickname ,Realising that his rule was at risk Mugabe fabricated lies about nkomo keeping weapons and said nkomo was planning a rebellion ,He used that propaganda and sent a north korea trained army to unleash terror in matebelaland claiming 20 000 lives ,Even Putin's invasion of Ukraine is no match for what mugabe did and shonas believed his propaganda and supported him ....by gukurahundi he virtually ended the opposition in zimbabwe and solidified his rule until 1999 when the mdc was born

fast forward to 2022 Zanu pf still realises the power of tribalism that is why they send individuals to pindula to peddle tribalism and distract us from discussing the real issues affecting us.we now spend all our time insulting each other and promoting tribalism instead of dicussing fuel prices,politically violence ,corruption
.lets stop entertaining these state sponsered individuals...Tribalism is zanu pf
if you are tribalist you are a Zanu pf supporter

Nhai hako iwee. I don't know where people get the energy to point fingers to another black person sharing the same borders whilst the other is also black as ever and also sharing the same borders.
People got to learn to live in peace with each other

I DO AGREE WITH COACH PHILAN NCUBE THAT MOST FOOTBALL PLAYERS ABUSE DRUGS ALTHOUGH I AM NOT SURE OF HIS STATISTICS. I ALSO BELIEVE THAT THE PROBLEM COULD HAVE ESCALATED DURING THE PANDEMIC.

WHILE PHILANI NCUBE HAS APPEALED TO PSL AND FOOTBALLERS UNION OF ZIMBABWE FOR HELP, I WANT TO URGE COACHES TOO NOT TO INCLUDE SUCH PLAYERS IN THEIR LINE UPS AS A FORM OF PUNISHMENT.

COACHES MUST KNOW THEIR PLAYERS WELL SO THAT THEY CAN EASILY NOTICE THAT SO AND SO IS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF SUBSTANCES. COACHES MUST KNOW THE SPEECHES, GAITTIES AND COLOUR OF THEIR PLAYERS' EYES.

SOCCER CLUB EXECUTIVES MUST MAKE SURE THEIR PLAYERS SPEND ONE NIGHT BOOKED AT A LODGE OR HOTEL WHERE THE TECHNICAL TERM SUPERVISES THEM. THIS EXERCISE IS COSTLY, BUT IT IS WORTH IT.

Mr Bush Lawyer Sir, I advise you to stop analysing the news for about 2 or 3 weeks please so that we can flush out on who has been posting some incorrect nonsense in your name.
Please refrain from commenting for just 2 to 3 weeks because the person now types exactly like you and it's causing confusion to us who follow your analysis

If you watch a PSL match, you can tell these guys are not healthy at all. Come the 60th minute, the tempo of the game falls faster than the Zim dollar trading against the US dollar.
Zim sporting is in shambles. Players get measly salaries. The boards are corrupt as hell. Sport psychologists won't solve anything...the entire country needs an overhaul
