Warriors head coach Callisto Pasuwa is set to remain in charge of the national team despite a poor showing at CHAN 2016.
Zimbabwe struggled in Rwanda and crashed out in Group stages managing a draw and scoring one goal despite getting better chances in most of the games.
The poor showing has led to question about Pasuwa’s future. However indications are that ZIFA are keen to give Pasuwa more time.
ZIFA have also been blamed for not giving Pasuwa adequate preparations for the tournament with the Warriors not playing any friendlies in the build up.
Speaking to the Herald Chivayo said, I am someone who believes in investing for long term benefits and I don’t think we should be a country that chops and changes coaches simply because we did not do well at tournaments.
Chivayo suggested patience was needed to get reward for the continuity.
Wicknell has already started settling ZIFA debts that include money owed to former Warriors head coach Tom Saintfiet.
