ZIFA President Felton Kamambo says a formal notice will be made this weekend, advertising the Warriors job vacancy.
The senior national team has no substantive coach since the departure of Sunday Chidzambwa in August. The association is looking to fill that void and appoint a permanent mentor in early January.
In an interview with NewsDay, the ZIFA boss said: “We will be advertising for the post of the Warriors coach in the Sunday papers this week.
“We had received some applications before, but those were people who knew there was a vacancy. We are now making it official by placing adverts.
“So we are going to consider those who will respond to the advert as well as those who had already submitted their applications. We want to make sure the best candidate gets the job.”
Klaus-Dieter Pagels who was in charge of the team six years ago expressed interest in the job while Joey Antipas who worked on an interim basis from August wants the job but under certain conditions as he still has a contract with Chicken Inn.
The Warriors have a busy schedule next year where they are playing in the 2021 African Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers, the 2022 World Cup qualifiers and the African Nations Championship (Chan) finals.
