With recent national team technical team appointments still sparking debate, local football observers have registered mixed feelings on whether the ZIFA board made the right decision on the appointment of Rahman Gumbo as the Warriors head coach.

Despite some football observers registering dissatisfaction on the technical team tasked with leading the Warriors in the 2013 AFCON campaign, former national soccer team player, Alois Bunjira was in agreement with the appointments.

Veteran football commentator and analyst, Stanley Katsande concurred with Bunjira but however highlighted flaws in the selection process when appointing national team coaches.

The national team appointments have sparked different opinions, with some football observers questioning the return of Rahman Gumbo, who was axed on grounds of indiscipline after allegedly wining and dining on the eve of a crucial national team assignment against Nigeria.

Others have challenged the hiring of Peter Ndlovu who has no coaching experience to talk about.

In resolutions that came out of an emergency board meeting held in the capital on Tuesday, Rahman Gumbo was named senior national team coach.

Gumbo will be assisted by former Dynamos gaffer, David Mandigora with Richard Tswatswa the goalkeepers coach.

The biggest surprise was the roping in of former Warriors great, Peter Ndlovu as the new national Under 23 coach.

Ndlovu will be assisted by Callisto Pasuwa, with Peter Nkomo remaining as the Young Warriors goalkeepers coach.
