Caf B course underway in Byo
PREMIER Soccer League and Division One coaches are part of the 16 local football gaffers taking part in a Caf B course that started at the YWCA Centre in Bulawayo on Monday.
Mutare City Rovers coach Takura Shariwa and Bulawayo City FC interim coach Try Ncube as well as Zifa Southern Region Division One side Bulawayo Chiefs’ coach Thulani Sibanda, Bantu Rovers junior team coach Agent Sawu and Amagagasi head coach Zibonele Ncube are part of the participants vying for Caf B badges.
Sawu’s Under-16 team were recently confirmed winners of the Bulawayo Province Junior League Serie A with two games to spare before the end of the season.
Former Warriors’ striker Gilbert Mushangazhike and Zimbabwe Soccer Coaches’ Association secretarygeneral Innocent Chogugudza are also attending the 18-day course alongside Dumile Kaizer Mpofu, Clement Mugari, Shadreck Mugurasawe, Ndawana Dube, Conrad Nyambabvu, Charles Mutere, Tonderai Marume, Joseph Michael and Njabulo Dude.
However, 10 participants, among them Bulawayo City striker Mkhokheli Dube and former Highlanders’ goalkeeper Peter Nkomo, were sent home after failing to meet the criteria required to take part in the course.
“We only accepted coaches with a Caf C badge and a minimum of two years working experience so 10 guys were sent back home for failing to meet the criteria.
“The majority of aspiring participants that were sent back home were holders of Caf C badges, but fell short of the two years experience,” said course coordinator
