Swaziland star player goes clubbing ahead of Ghana clash

Published on: 31 August 2010

Barely seven days before Swaziland play Ghana at home, star player Dennis ‘Yuki’ Masina skipped camp to enjoy himself at a popular night club in Manzini.

The Times Sports Desk can reveal that the Orlando Pirates player was released by his team over the weekend to join the squad but decided to go clubbing and arrived in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Masina’s escapades allegedly began at the Trade Fair where he mingled with clubbers and friends while the squad was in camp at Mhlume.

The dazzling attacking winger proceeded to the popular Club Le Zone in Manzini where he stayed until the early hours of the following day.

He is said to have dribbled his way to his room, past the sleeping Sihlangu management at Mhlume.

The player, when called for comment yesterday admitted that he did go to the Trade Fair and Club Le Zone.

In a brief response, Masina said he went to the two places before retiring to bed late in the night at Mhlume Country Club where the national team is currently based.

"I cannot say much but yes I went to Club Le Zone and the Trade Fair but it was not to enjoy myself," he said.

Sihlangu Logistics Manager, Comfort Shongwe could only confirm that when he went to bed at around 9pm on Sunday the player had not yet arrived.

That was despite the fact that he had made the indication that he would join the team in camp on Sunday.

"Yes I went to bed early but that doesn’t mean the player went clubbing because I personally spoke to him and he confirmed he will arrive late on the day. If what you are saying is true, one can only say we condemn it with the contempt it deserves," he said.

Shongwe on the other hand warned against negative publicity on the part of journalists ahead of the game against Ghana.

He further confirmed that another international Tony ‘TT’ Tsabedze has been held up by club commitments but was expected in camp last night.
