He said ZIFA would look at the coach issue as soon as the allegations being leveled against several bosses on match fixing were finished and the individuals either locked up or brought to book.
The officials include ZIFA Chief Executive, Henrietta Rushwaya, who was suspended last month.
“We are currently investigating the alleged betting scheme and once we are through, all our energy will be directed at the issue of the warriors coach,” Gumede said.
So far, ZIFA has employed Klaus-Deeter Pagel as a Technical Advisor while Norman Mapeza is caretaker coach for the Zimbabwe Warriors who recently tumbled in FIFA World Rankings.
Meanwhile former Zimbabwe Warriors Captain, Peter Ndlovu, said despite wanting to be Warriors Coach he did not have the Five O’Levels that go with the top job.
“I do not have the Five O Levels and even if I had an interest in the job I would not qualify,” he said.
In the past Ndlovu has admitted that he was interested in starting a career as a coach even in Zimbabwe.
Earlier this year he attained a CF C Licence.
ZIFA want the next coach to have academic qualifications but most Zimbqbwean stars do not have them.
ZIFA said in an advertisement that the next coach should have at least five years coaching experience and should have won at least a National Championship.
Most Warriors greats do not have the necessary Five O Levels required by ZIFA.
