WARRIORS coach Ian Gorowa's fate will be decided before the end of the week after the Zifa board met and studied recommendations made by the High Performance Technical Committee (HPTC).

Zifa president Cuthbert Dube and his board met last Thursday to discuss recommendations by the HPTC which also touched on other national teams.

Zifa spokesperson Xolisani Gwesela said on Monday he was yet to be briefed about the decision taken on the coach but revealed that his fate would be known this week.

“The issue of national team coaches has been concluded after the Zifa board met (last) Thursday,” said Gwesela.

“John Phiri presented to the board the report compiled by the high performance committee but I am yet to be briefed on the fate of the coach but a decision will be known before the end of the week.

“A decision will also be made on the junior coaches. We will issue a public statement in due course."

It is understood the HPTC recommended Gorowa’s expulsion after the coach irked the John Phiri-chaired committee by producing inadequately-prepared reports. The coach also had a public spat with Phiri’s deputy, Gibson Homela.

Gorowa led the Warriors to their worst ever campaign in their international football history following a first round exit from the Afcon qualifiers at the hands of little Tanzania.

Lloyd Chigova is currently in charge of the Under-17 team, Jairos Tapera oversees the Under-20s, while Calisto Pasuwa was appointed Under-23 coach after Peter Ndlovu quit for a managerial post at Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Under-17 and 20s are currently serving a CAF ban after failing to fulfil their respective away assignments in 2012.
