Chiyangwa says ZIFA is too broke to appoint permanent Warrriors coach

Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) president Philip Chiyangwa has said the association is too broke to appoint a permanent coach for the senior men’s team and will continue employing FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza on a temporary basis.

Chiyangwa, who is also the Cosafa boss, told Standardsport yesterday that:

At the moment we have Norman Mapeza who is the acting coach, zvesubsustantive coach ndezvimwewo izvo [the issue of a substantive coach is another story]. Norman is the person I appointed myself as acting coach and he can perform the role for a year or two, there’s nothing amiss about that. We won’t be rushed into putting someone under contract because it will have other implications. Can you imagine a situation where we had appointed someone soon after parting ways with Pasuwa and he was on a $7 000 a month salary like his predecessor, how much would we have forked out by the time we play Liberia in June?  Where would I get the money? So I believe we have saved something like $40 000 and that’s why we were able to make that donation to women’s football. It’s called cost benefit analysis.

ZIFA has a debt of 7 million most of it in owed salaries from former coaches.
