Zimbabwe is set to retain the services of coach Sunday Chidzambwa for their upcoming two international friendly matches against Lesotho and Namibia.

The Warriors are set to meet the Likoena and the Brave Warriors during the FIFA break next month, but ZIFA is yet to announce the move.

On the other hand, the team is also set to play in the Council of East and Central African Football Associations (CECAFA) Challenge Cup set for Kenya at the end of November.

Chidzambwa took over the national team for the COSAFA Cup in South Africa where they won the tournament.


However, ZIFA extended his mandate as a reward for winning the regional tournament when his interim tenure was extended for the 2018 African Nations Championship Qualifiers.

ZIFA’s Xolisani Gwesela told News Day Sport they will announce the Warriors coach for the three assignments this week.

“We will advise by the end of this week,” Gwesela said.

However, a source confided that the ZIFA leadership has once again picked Chidzambwa for the team’s next matches.

“Sunday will continue with his role and they have already contacted him. Negotiations have started and I don’t think he will turn down the offer,” adds a source.

“They want to retain the technical team that won the Cosafa tournament and that shouldn’t be a problem because they have worked well.”

Watford FC’s Nigerian international Isaac Success will not be leaving the English Premier League (EPL) despite his lack of game time this season.

The 21-year-old striker, who joined Watford from Spanish outfit Granada last year, is yet to feature in Watford’s first two league games of the season.

The English club’s head coach Marco Silva has since revealed why Success has not been getting some game time.

“This situation: He’s a young boy and boy who needs to adapt to this football and to our ideas as well,” Silva said on Own Goal Nigeria.

“We tried to put that to him as soon as possible because he’s one player we believe in as a project – as a Watford project.

“Until now I don’t have a decision. He stays with us, he works hard and tried to find his space in the team. It’s what I want him to do,” he added.

“It surprises me, this. Until now I haven’t spoken with anybody about the situation.”

Success made 19 league appearances for Watford during the 2016/17 campaign and he netted once in the process under coach Walter Mazzarri.

Prior to that season he had netted six goals in 30 Spanish La Liga matches for Granada during the 2015/16 campaign.
