'Epoupa owes me an apology'

NOT guilty!

Highlanders FC defender Peter Muduhwa says he did nothing wrong to Dynamos striker Christian Epoupa Ntouba. In fact, Ntouba should apologise to him.

"He owes me an apology," said Muduhwa.

It was not the first time the two players were at the centre of events in the biggest showdown of Zimbabwean football. In the first encounter on 23 May at Barbourfields Stadium a stray ball deflected on Muduhwa and landed on Ntouba gifting him with a chance to get on the score sheet. After Ntouba scored the game was abandoned as Highlanders supporters threw missiles.

This time around, Ntouba head-butted Muduhwa and got himself sent off. However, off field goings on have made the issue a hot topic with Ntouba's red card reversed.

Muduhwa questioned why he was assaulted by the DeMbare player because between the two, there's a language barrier.

"I never exchanged any words with Epoupa. There was a language barrier between him and I," he added.

He claims to have done his best to contain the player and probably that's what got him angry.

"I made sure he was under lock and key and emotions eventually got the better of him," he said.

Last year Muduhwa was caught in a similar fracas with Caps United and eventual top goal scorer of the 2016 season, Leonard Tsipa.

Tsipa in reports claimed that Muduhwa had insulted him by making reference to his mother and Muduhwa admits there was a scene.

"We exchanged harsh words because we spoke the same language," he said.
