Hilary Henriette Lindsay :a very big no ! Dube is a businessman and he failed miserably ! what do these businessmen want with Zimbabwean football? if not in their foolish pride of life they seek to add to their own glory, find some-one who has a heart for football, then, at least you will have some-one whose main interest is in the up-liftment of our beloved game. else it would be like jumping out of the frying pan right into the fire.
Thabang Ransay Mposah: A big NO!!! Not another thief.. fomer players please who understand the game…… Peter.. Grobbellar or Sunday evn Mabika is better. Evn this former Caps guy…… Bunjira please.
