Newly promoted Bulawayo Chiefs have reportedly approached four coaches as they search for the best candidate with a Caf-A Licence.
Thulani Sibanda, who guided the team into the Premier Soccer League last season is a holder of a Caf-B badge and Chiefs are now making efforts replace him so that they meet ZIFA’s requirements for PSL coaches.
Club chairman James Rugwevera yesterday confirmed to the NewsDay that they have talked to four coaches, but would not reveal their names as they have not made up their minds on who to engage as yet.
“We have a considerable number, about four coaches that we have been talking to, but no decision has been made on who we will take on board. As for now I cannot say who the coaches are, we have just been talking, we have not conducted any interviews. It has just been informal,” Rugwevera said.
However, a source told the newspaper that the club have contacted veteran coaches Barry Daka and Cosmas “Tsano” Zulu with the former being the front-runner to land the post.
Daka was at Bulawayo City last year while Zulu was a goalkeeper’s coach at Highlanders.
