The Premier Soccer League (PSL) verdict to have the abandoned Dynamos –Chapungu encounter replayed resuming in the 56th minute and carrying the 4-1 scoring that was prevailing has proven to be a painful stab in the hearts of many football lovers who feel the verdict though final, leaves a lot to be desired.
Analysts believe the game was supposed to be played a day after the abandonment to cut travelling costs for the away team, but the PSL remained silent only to resurface with the verdict after some weeks.
Alois Bunjira said in as much as the verdict is correct for the two teams to play the remaining 44 minutes, Dynamos as the away team will be on the receiving end since they need to foot their travelling expenses.
Under normal circumstances the game should be played with the same players and officials on the field, the challenge is some of the players maybe suspended or might have moved during the transfer window which makes the situation more complicated.
The analysts believe it is at this point when PSL should chip in through fines paid by clubs and assist in these unforeseen events.
Dynamos has already registered their displeasure on the verdict.
The Glamour Boys’ head coach Lloyd Mutasa said they have no option but to go and fulfill the fixture.
Contacted for comment, PSL chief executive officer Kenny Ndebele said they will not comment at the moment since the verdict has been given to the clubs by the disciplinary committee.
