Sources at the club revealed that the executive had been sacked by the club’s owners after they allegedly converted to their use invitations forwarded to the club by Zifa for use to travel with the Warriors to Monrovia.
Sources said some members of the club travelled with the team to Liberia on the invitation given to the club without informing the owners of the club, Eric and Lizzy Rosen who were supposed to have received the invitations. This according to the sources, incensed the club owners, forcing them to relieve the Simeon Jamanda led executive of their duties.
The Zimbabwe Football Association chartered a plane for the Warriors to travel to Liberia and made invitations to several clubs and individuals to travel with the team where the Warriors played a one-all draw against the hosts.
Rosen confirmed there had been some changes in the executive but refused to give more details saying this was an internal matter that had been resolved according to ‘the Motor Action way.’
Jamanda and his executive had been in charge of Motor Action for more than six years having joined the team after the Mighty Bulls had bought the Blackpool franchise. Jamanda, who was very close to the Blackpool directors was a club executive at the club. He, however, could not be reached for a comment.
The changes in the executive comes at a time when the modest Harare club are at the summit of the 16 team Premier Soccer League table with 41 points, 12 ahead of second placed Dynamos.
This is the Mighty Bulls best start since they bought the Blackpool franchaise a few years ago. They are now favourites to win the title having at one time finished second behind Highlanders in 2003.
