ZIFA High Performance Technical Committee vice-chairman Gibson Homela insists he still wants Warriors coach Ian Gorowa to submit his coaching certificates and the report on the failed 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifying campaign by Friday.
Homela — a Fifa instructor — is conducting the Caf A Licence coaching clinic currently underway at the Zifa Village.
The former Warriors and Zimbabwe Saints coach said yesterday Gorowa should still submit his certificates and report by the deadline he set after it was discovered he was the only one who had not submitted his certificates and report for a review by The High Performance Committee.
“Those comments by Gorowa are unfortunate. I really don’t answer to this young man. I answer to Zifa. This is a task that I was assigned by Zifa, but whatever he is saying I still need the certificates and the report by the deadline I set,” Homela said, adding that it was Zifa’s task to try and bridge the gap between him and the coach if he did not want to report to his committee.
Gorowa has stated that he does not report to the High Performance Technical Committee, but to the Zifa chief executive officer.
The Warriors coach claims he submitted his report on the Warriors 2-2 draw against Tanzania which ended Zimbabwe’s interests in the qualifiers after they were booted out courtesy of a 3-2 aggregate defeat and that the other one would follow.
He said he did not know why the High Performance Committee had not yet received the other report. Gorowa, however, expressed his disappointment with Homela whom he accused of showing interest in the Warriors of late when he has been quiet all along without giving his input.
The Committee which met in Harare last week Wednesday to discuss technical aspects of all the national teams resolved to give Gorowa a deadline of July 4 to submit his report and certificates as all the other coaches had done.
The committee wants to look at the reports of all national team coaches including Mighty Warriors coach Rosemary Mugadza to establish so that they come up with recommendations after both teams failed to qualify for their respective assignments.
“We need to look at all CVs and professional certificates for technical members of the national teams.
“We need to know their expertise and qualifications and this will enable us to draw meaningful recommendations.”
