Mashingaidze denies speculation



The Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) is in the red concerning financial matters and to make matters worse, they are facing three different lawsuits from three former coaches.

Brazilian Jose Valinhos, former Black Leopards coach Sunday Chindzambwa and Norman Mapeza, are demanding payments from the football mother body for unlawful dismissals by Zifa at different points.

The total cost for all the three coaches is close to US$500 000 and Zifa does not have that amount to pay the coaches.

There have been rumours within the football fraternity that Zifa wants to raise money through the Asiagate bans fines to cover other financial needs at present.

However, Zifa CEO Jonathan Mashingaidze denied these reports saying that the coaches’ lawsuits have nothing to do with the fines imposed on officials and players who were found guilty in the Asiagate scandal.

“These are two different issues and you can’t combine them. The coaches have their own issues with ZIFA and some of them things happened even before the Asiagate issue came up,” he said.

“As for saying when we are paying the coaches it is subject to the finalisation of these cases as others are with the Centre of Arbitration,” Mashingaidze concluded.
