Sunday Chidzambwa was left ruing Zimbabwe Warriors’ lack of creativity but could not fault his side’s effort as they lost 1-0 against nrighbours Botswana in the inaugural President’s Independence Cup.
Zimbabwe failed to capitalise on several chances created after Kebaikanye 21st minute gial.
And the the Record holding Warriors coach admitted that his side came off second best for large periods of the game.
Chidzambwa was in full support of the attitude of his players, however, and despite admitting “we don’t have the ‘creativity’ type of players at the moment, says that he saw enough signs from them to suggest that they can improve their iffy form when the AFCON campaign resumes with a mixture of his foreign stars.
“Gone are the days when we had players like Ronald “Gidiza” Sibanda, Lloyd Mutasa. We really need to look around for the players of that calibre in that central midfield.
“In Zambia we had Nakamba (Nakamba), Ovidy (Karuru) and Marshal Munetsi. I wasn’t happy with their performance. We could have easily won that tournament had we been good in that area. We were not creative at all.
“I think we really need to look around for those creative central midfielders. We still have a problem in that area. But I was happy with that Herentals boy, Richard Hachiro.
“He came in, stamped his authority and there was a lot of movement in that area. And I think we need to look around as well and find youngsters like him and then we sort out this central midfield,” Chidzambwa told the Chronicle.
