The Herald reports that it is reliably informed that ZIFA, who have always expressed a deep admiration for the former Motor Action coach Joey Antipas, are targeting him to replace Kallisto Pasuwa as Warriors coach.
However, yesterday, ZIFA vice president Omega Sibanda said they were yet to start hunting for Pasuwa’s successor. Said Sibanda:
The ZIFA executive is yet to meet over the national team. But we hope it will meet as soon as possible. I am sure by Thursday I will be in a position to give you something.
Sources at ZIFA who spoke to The Herald said ZIFA is also targeting Ngezi Platinum coach Tonderai Ndiraya as Antipas’ assistant with Highlanders legend Peter “Captain Oxo” Nkomo coming in as the goalkeepers’ coach.However, another source claims ZIFA were still pursuing the route of hiring a foreign coach. Meanwhile, Pasuwa yesterday met with ZIFA president Philip Chiyangwa and handed over the keys of the car donated by Wicknell Chivayo. Chiyangwa also promised to look into the issue of his outstanding dues. ZIFA are also battling to recover another Toyota vehicle which was being used by Mighty Warriors gaffer Shadreck Mlauzi who is holding on to the car insisting the Association owe him his dues.
