Daniel Owefin Amukachi should with immediate effect stop to analyse any future football games on DSTV's Super Sport channel to be played by zambia's c
The stir behind the #AmukachiMustGo began from c omments made by Former Nigerian Striker Daniel Owefin Amukachi on a Super-Sport AFCON Panel. He was reflecting on the performance of the Zambia National team at the current AFCON 2012, where in my sense, he degraded Zambian players by saying they will be asking for autographs from the Senegalese players from the first game. In the second game against Libya he said Zambian players look like orphans. I understand that the invited panelists by Super- Sport are expected to offer a balance of the teams playing by having support from each team present on the panel. Support or preference for a team is Fine, Criticism towards a team or teams is also Fine. Blasphemy towards a team or teams is unacceptable. I can understand the Zambian team don't have many trophies to their name, they don't have many international players that play in top leagues in the world as compared to other African countries, but I think its wrong to degrade us to the point where Amukachi feels our Zambian team will be amazed by playing the Senegalese, to the point where they'll be asking for autographs.Please don't take advantage of our Zambian kindness. We are naturally not fighters, socially and politically. I think an apology is needed here. Secondly, to refer to our Zambian team as orphans is totally and extremely low and of no connection to the tournament being played. Zambian football is affected by the pain that was left behind by our fallen heroes (May their Souls Rest in Peace). Our Heroes left behind grieving Wifes, Children, Families, Friends and an Entire Country. Till this day We do not know what fully happened and this is a very sore and sensitive topic amongst most Zambians. To have Amukachi on a Super-Sport panel expressing his arrogance, insensitive views and unprofessional analysis or criticism of our Zambian team is disgusting. We, as a people of zambia and commited subscribers of Dstv firmly stand for the removal of Daniel Owefin Amukachi by Super-Sport from any sport panel discussing Zambian Football or any sport being played by Zambians.
