We have to be serious when on national duty ... Kalisto Pasuwa
Mutuma, Mushure called up for Lesotho tie

WARRIORS coach Kalisto Pasuwa has stamped his authority after chasing away three key players including Dynamos star midfielder Ronald Chitiyo for reporting to camp late on Wednesday morning.

Also expelled for late coming is Caps United utility player Hardlife Zvirekwi and defender Justice Jangano.

The Warriors started trooping into camp on Monday evening but the majority of the player joined in on Tuesday.

However, the trio didn't show up on time only arriving on Wednesday morning a move which angered Pasuwa.

"We have to be serious when we are on national duty,” said the coach.

“Any player who thinks he has a place in the team is fooling himself. We want players who commit themselves to duty wholeheartedly and if you come late to camp, your commitment to duty becomes questionable so I have sent those players back home.

“We are playing Lesotho on Sunday. There are no more small teams in Africa. Lesotho has played in Afcon, Cosafa and Chan, and if you don’t train as a team, you falter.

“I would have wanted all the guys here. How do I work out my combinations? If the players are called up they should come on time."

The Warriors are preparing for the first leg of the African Nations Championship (Chan) qualifier against Lesotho at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday.

But their preparations have also been hampered by injuries to some key players including skipper Danny Phiri and striker Rodreck Mutuma.

He however expressed satisfaction at the accommodation offered to the players and is hopeful the Warriors can pull out a good result at home.
