The Zimbabwe Football Associationâ€™s Chief Executive Officer, Jonathan Mashingaidze says the board will this Wednesday officially announce the technical team that will take charge of Zimbabweâ€™s 2013 Nationâ€™s Cup qualifier against Burundi.
With the nation anxiously waiting to find out the technical team that will take charge of Zimbabweâ€™s assignment with Burundi, Mashingaidze says the board is still deliberating on what stance to take before making an official announcement this Wednesday.Â Â Â Â Â
Mashingaidzeâ€™s remarks come in the wake of the local football governing bodyâ€™s decision to suspend 82 players that have been fingered to be part of the biggest match fixing scandal in Zimbabweâ€™s footballing history.
With 82 players already suspended for international assignments, Norman Mapeza and Joey Antipas are expected to be asked to step aside for the Burundi tie after also appearing as participants in an Asiagate report prepared by an investigating committee that was headed by Ndumiso Gumede.
Speculation has pointed to Klaus Dieter Pagels being appointed to take charge of Zimbabweâ€™s crucial qualifier with Burundi on an interim basis.
However, Wednesday remains the designated day which the ZIFA board is expected to officially communicate its position.
