THE Zifa High Performance Committee (HPC) is expected to meet next week to discuss and recommend a substantive coach for the Warriors ahead of the start of the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers in June.

Zifa had appointed FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza on a caretaker basis to take charge of the international friendly against Zambia.

Although Zifa were impressed with Mapeza following a 0-0 draw against their northern counterparts, it is understood his employers are unwilling to accept the idea of their coach doubling as both FC Platinum and Warriors coach.

Zifa vice president Omega Sibanda chairs the committee that also includes vice chair Sunday Chidzambwa, Rahman Gumbo, Moses Chunga, retired referee Masimba Chihowa and Edmore Chogugudza.

Sibanda said on Tuesday, they would ensure the Warriors coach was in place before the end of April.

“The HPC will be meeting sometime next week to discuss and recommend a coach for the Warriors. Take note that the committee is just there to recommend and the Zifa executive would make a decision.

“It’s the executive that will have the final say. We still have time, the Afcon qualifications are only there in June so we will have the coach in place before the end of the month,” said Sibanda.

According to Zifa president Philip Chiyangwa, Zifa have received over 600 applications for the Warriors job from across the globe.

However, with Zifa in financial doldrums, they are understood to be preparing to appoint a local coach.
