Masuku‘s Harare city future uncertain

HARARE City coach Mkhuphali Masuku’s future has been thrown into uncertainty amid reports that he does not have the minimum Caf A licence coaching certificate – a pre-requisite for one to sit on the technical bench starting this season.
ZIFA issued a directive to all clubs in the PSL that coaches in charge of premier league teams should have a minimum Caf A licence coaching course.
However, Harare City secretary Mathew Marara said Tuesday that while they had received a circular from Zifa regarding the directive, they would not be making any changes to their technical team.
Marara said ZIFA registers all coaches and they would wait for the registration exercise by ZIFA to decide on the way forward.
“We are aware of the circular you refer to but, as Harare City, we have not made any changes to our technical team. Mkuhuphali Masuku remains our coach.
“ZIFA is responsible for the registration of coaches and we will wait until the registration is done. We will cross the bridge when we get there,” said Marara.
Last month some 30 coaches, including Caps United mentor Lloyd Chitembwe, attended the Caf A licence course aimed at helping local coaches upgrade their qualifications in line with modern football practices.
The course ran from January 9 and was completed on Jan 23. However, Masuku – who was assistant to coach to Kalisto Pasuwa in the Warriors technical team set up – did not attend the course as he was in camp with the national team which was preparing for the 2017 African Cup of Nations finals held in Gabon.Advertisement
