Sacked former FC Platinum coach Pieter de Jongh has declared that he will be back in Zimbabwean football despite the setback which saw him being shown the exit door by the platinum miners.

The outspoken Dutchman was dismissed by the defending Castle Lager Premier Soccer League champions yesterday after he was bared by CAF for not having a CAF A coaching license, a pre-requisite for one to sit on the bench in the continental governing body’s inter club competitions.

Posting on microblogging site Twitter, de Jongh, who was replaced by former Warriors skipper Norman Mapeza, vowed to bounce back despite the hitch.

“FOOTBALL IS A CRAZY GAME!! Would like to thank every football stakeholders including Fc platinum supporters and bosso fans. The champ will be back,” he wrote.

The former Bosso coach also took time to respond to some replies on the post, notably one follower who suggested that he wanted to coach in the Champions League using a Dutch passport.

“A UEFA international license is 100 times better than a CAF A,” responded de Jongh.
