ZIFA vice president Omega Sibanda gave the stern warning at a CAF B licence coaching clinic held in Zvishavane.

The ZIFA vice president told 26 participants at the coaching programme that the practice where non-qualified coaches take on jobs at clubs is robbery, not only of opportunities to the qualified, but also retrogressive to advancing football from grassroots.

The course which has was held from the 7th to 22nd of May saw the participants take a final CAF level B examination which they all passed.

Among some of the notable names in the group were former players Gift Lunga (senior), Luke Petros Jukulile and Daniel Veremu.

ZIFA says while in the past such courses were only conducted in Harare, this time all provinces will have a chance to be part of the programme as the drive to ensure the biggest beneficiary is grassroots football development.
