No full time Warriors coach yet

IT seems money will be a determining factor for the Zimbabwe Football association (ZIFA), to hire the desired coach for the national team position on full time basis.
Zifa President Philip Chiyangwa, has said that his association does not have the money to appoint a substantive national team coach at the moment and will continue engaging FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza on a caretaker basis.
Zifa appointed Mapeza to take charge of the Warriors’ international friendly match against Zambia in Harare last month, after parting ways with Callisto Pasuwa in February.
While it appears Zifa have opted to engage Mapeza to take charge of the team, ahead of the 2018 African Nations Championship (Chan) and 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers, they are yet to offer the coach a contract on a full-time basis.
Chinyangwa has made it clear that at the moment they will continue to work with Mapeza, until the right time comes when there is enough money to appoint a full time coach.
“Right now we have Norman who will be in charge of the forth coming games in June and thereafter until we appoint the new coach,” said Chiyangwa.
“I am not sure how long it will take but, no matter how long it takes we will engage him on a part time basis looking at our financial situation as we don’t want to find ourselves in a tight corner because of the financial problems that we are facing right now.”Advertisement
