Interim ZIFA president Gift Banda said the next board meeting will deliberate on the appointment of a substantive coach for the Warriors.
Banda told The Herald that the Warriors coach should be local, arguing that foreign coaches are not always the best candidates for the job. Said, Banda:
We will sit down with my fellow board members and deliberate on it in our next board meeting so that we have a substantive coach.
If you ask for my preference, I would prefer a local coach because it’s high time we gave our own coaches the chance to lead our teams because it’s not everything that is foreign that is good for us.
Again in that vein, I would also add that as a nation we must have an identity.
What type of football do we want to play so we put it in the structures up to the junior level?
The Warriors currently do not have a substantive coach following the expiry of Norman Mapeza’s contract.
The FC Platinum coach took over the reins after Croatian Zdravko Logarusic was shown the exit door before the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations finals held in Cameroon in early 2022.
