Meanwhile, some say the Zimbabwe-Malawi match hangs in the balance as the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) is yet to appoint a team manager.
There have been reports of efforts by various stakeholders including Warriors coach Zdravko “Loga” Logarusic to manipulate the selection process.
Former Warriors and Mamelodi Sundowns winger Alois Bunjira told Daily News that the lack of a team manager meant Zifa failed to communicate properly with clubs.
I’m not really sure why the process of engaging a team manager has been so more complicated than that of engaging the coach. We should have announced the team manager when we announced the coach.
Look, we all know how long before a match players are supposed to be called up. We all know the protocols. So why are we always getting caught offside.
Not only because of the late request will most of the players not come, but also because there isn’t a proper plan in place that has been communicated to the players and their teams.
Loga had called up 17 players for the Malawi preparatory match but those plans were thrown into disarray after Queen Park Rangers’ Macauley Bonne, Kadewere and Zamora FC’s Martin Mapisa all pulled out of the squad “because of some reasons.”
