In the wake of a 1-0 loss at the hands of Zesco United, Red Arrows mentor Honor Janza has labelled referee Leonard Akapelwa as stupid.

The former Chipolopolo coach has lamented the referee's stunts after he was shown a red card in an altercation with the whistle man.

Akapelwa apparently went to the Red Arrows bench to show them objects that were thrown on the pitch by suspected Red Arrows fans.

The action was seen as provocation by Janza and his technical bench leading to a serious argument after which the former Chipolopolo coach was given his matching orders.


“This is why am saying when you are an amateur you don’t know where to take your complaints,” Janza complained to Zambian Football.

“We did not expect him to come to our bench… for what?

“Us we are technocrats. He was suppose to go to the match commissioner, the fourth official or our officials - bringing to us was a mockery.

“We gave him what he wanted. I told him that he is stupid and I repeat he is stupid. He must not do that again to any coach or any bench because it’s stupid.” CLICK HERE TO VISIT AFRICAN FOOTBALL ZAMBIA
