ZIFA will not rush to appoint a new national team head coach according to the association’s vice president Omega Sibanda.

The Zimbabwe national team is without a head coach after Callisto Pasuwa’s contract expired last week with ZIFA deciding against a renewal after a poor AFCON 2017 campaign.

A number of names have been suggested for the top post with Amazulu head coach Joey Antipas and Norman Mapeza early favourite’s for the job.

Other coaches set to be considered are Botswana based Madinda Ndlovu and former Warriors goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar.

However speaking to the Herald ,Sibanda said, “As Zimbabwe we need a coach who can take our football to a better level than it was before.

‘So I cannot talk of foreign or local, what we want is someone who brings value to our football. In short we want the best coach available.

“I’m sure everything is under control. Remember national teams are not like football clubs who should be together all the time for preparations because they play week in and week out.

‘I guess there is no need to rush things now added Sibanda.
