Premiership side Shabanie Mine has requested ZIFA for more time to look for a new head ahead of their match against Bulawayo City on Good Friday following the departure of head coach Wilson Mutekede.
Mutekede has assumed a new role as Zifa technical director following his appointment last week.
The asbestos miners need appoint a CAF A licence holder in order to comply with the new Zifa club licensing requirements and are understood to have asked ZIFA to keep Mutekede for the Friday match.
Zifa communications manager Xolisani Gwesela is adamant that the club should have a qualified coach on their bench.
“We have set standards and there is no way we can compromise on those standards to accommodate an individual club.
The reason why we came up with the club licencing system is to ensure clubs are professional,” said Gwesela.
The Chinda Boys were forced to reassign Taku Shariwa to the position of technical manager before the commencement of the season after being initially appointed head coach.
Shariwa is a holder of a Caf B licence and under the club licencing system is ineligible to sit on the bench as head coach.
