Chiyangwa has a long way to go
EDITOR — There are some people who are counting their chickens before they are hatched. The current successes of the national football teams did not begin with the appointment of Philip Chiyangwa.
Our only foreign victory in Afcon was achieved under Dube. One draw to lowly Swaziland and a defeat to Guinea was achieved under Big Phil but even that we cannot give him credit for.
Today we still have no adequate preparations for Afcon for Awcon, no friendlies, nearly got booted out after almost failing to travel to Guinea. Women and junior programmes non existent and non functioning.
The Chan team almost collapsed because of corruption and match fixing under Phil’s nose and the AAG success ran into the ground. Cosafa was a big yawn and a foretaste of things to come and in Conakry we fell.
The Premier League and football in general is in a deplorable state and there isn’t even a tunnel in order to see the light. Under 17s did not play and Under 20s did not qualify for any tournaments.
Big Phil really has to do something and he needs to do it fast. I actually think Big Phil and company had not fully grasped or comprehended the problems bedevilling football at the time they came in, nor at the present moment. We were under the impression Big Phil would bring in a lot of money that would revamp or revitalise football overnight.
Unfortunately, there is no money, and there is absolutely no way Big Phil can fix the current problems without money. Significant Watemwa, Via email
