Carlos Max resigns from post over affair

HARARE - Former Zimbabwe international footballer Carlos Max has resigned as chairman of the Arcadia Sports Association after a leaked WhatsApp video exposed a love affair between the married ex-defender and the model daughter of late legendary musician Andy Brown.

The video of the cuddling “lovebirds” – which has gone viral on WhatsApp – shows a clearly drunk, obscenity-spitting Shahla bragging about the illicit relationship and warning other women against dating the 52-year-old former Arcadia United, CAPS United and Dynamos star.

“I’m the daughter of Andy Brown and Carlos Max and I are an item…yes we are, and I am the first lady,” yapped Shahla as Max, who could only smile, caressed her backside.

It is not known who recorded the video, or how it leaked. 

Shahla, sister of songbird Amara Brown, further issued threats against potential competition – saying other women would have to look like Kim Kardashian to wrestle Max away from her.

“Any b….ch that’s wanna f….en try take the crown, you got to be a heavy f….en honey…coz I will f…en cut your c…kie open!”

A respected member of the Arcadia community, under his chairmanship Arcadia Sports Club has undergone a major revival, with the renovation of the basketball court to match international standards being one of Max’s notable accomplishments.

Max, who earned most of his Zimbabwe caps Under Reinhardt Fabisch during the Dream Team era, tendered his resignation on the Arcadia Sports Club Facebook page yesterday.

He wrote: “Given the current circumstances I think it's only fitting that I relinquish my post as chairman of the sports association. Anyone in the committee or community interested in the position please feel free to contact me.”

The post instigated an outpouring of solidarity from friends.

“Carlos I personally don't believe that you should relinquish your post. You have done sterling work for the community and are to be commended for all you have done. You have our unwavering support. As the bible says in John 8:7 " Let he who is without sin among you, cast the first stone". Stand proud and have the courage of your convictions. We applaud you for all your achievements, past & present,” wrote Bev Ericksen.

Theo Max posted: “The Community is will surely going to miss all your commitment and hard work. Well done my brother. Good luck to the next Chairman, you got your work cut out.”

I think this is the most honourable thing to do. By resigning it shows that at list you have conscience. Cuthbert Dube should follow this example set by Carlos Max

Hmm no i am sorry but that Shahla Brown is just a piece of work and is only bringing shame to the community. The clip was degrading more than anything. A well respected man being tarnished by trash and such a shame that all he could do was smile.

I disagree with Madashell. If Carlos is well respected, he should not be seen doing such a thing. He is a father figure in the community. Let him face the heat. Devil comes to kill steal and destroy.
