He added, "I received a text message from the MD saying that he would like to talk to me. He reminded me that we had a chat about four months ago regarding some of the players' unhappiness. Some of the players and the staff members went to see him and reported that they are not happy with the job I am doing and that the job that I was given was not meant for me."
Ntini was then notified that he would not be part of Zimbabwe's Bangladesh tour and was asked to resign.
