Dynamos board secretary, Mthokozisi Nkosi has said the club is not worried about the players leaked conversation saying they were merely venting their frustrations.

On Sunday Dynamos easily surrendered a comfortable three nil lead with just seven minutes left of play against rivals Caps United.

That sparked fears of match fixing within Dynamos camp.

However, Nkosi says the talk by players was normal.

Below is what he told the media.

"I went to training to observe from a distance to see who was there and who was putting a halfhearted effort, but I was surprised everyone was involved.

" I asked the coaches after the training session whether they had asked the players about the leaked audio, but said they hadn't.

"These guys are friends. In any social set up there are certain people who are friends with these players.

"They actually drive home together with these players most of the times after games.

" So this is what happened on this particular incident.

"After a match these guys were going home with someone they are familiar with and of course they are just bound to burst.

" Naturally, I think everyone was affected by that match result because we had all thought we had the three points in the bag.

"So as players they are bound to react in different ways. Of course they were just talking.

"Different things can be said about an incident but to suggest it really warrants to say there are problems at Dynamos, no I would not want to say that.

"Maybe our issue could be 'what was the motive behind recording that conversation'

"But again in the era of social media, just like what people are doing, you know people get excited and end up recording themselves with their girlfriends.

" It's the same in this particular conversation.

"Why then it had to leak, I don't know. But I would not really want to give it the prominence to say it's now something that is exposing problems within Dynamos, I think that will be a bit is unfair".
