Coach threatens actions against Zimbabwe

Ian Gorowa claims he is being owed a certain amount and threatens to take the matter to FIFA


Former Zimbabwe coach Ian Gorowa has threatened to add more woes to the country's troubles over unpaid salaries.

The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) in February undefined former coach Jose Claudinei Georgini.

Now another former coach has revealed that the country's FA is owing him and has threatened to report to FIFA.

Gorowa who was coach of the warriors between 2013-2014 claims he is owed close to $100, 000 in salary arrears which he said has not been paid to him despite attempts to retrieve his money.

"This makes me sick because you can see how Zifa is making frantic efforts to pay off former coaches Valinhos [Jose Claudinei Georgini] and Tom Saintfiet who they owe as well," Gorowa told BBC Sports.

"But me nothing; not even an engagement. And to make it worse, these are brothers who treat their fellow brother this way.

"It's a shame and the fact that I took it to the highest office of sport in the country and nothing has been done.

"My next action is to go to FIFA because it looks like I have exhausted all channels," Gorowa said.

According to the BBC Sports, ZIFA have acknowledged that they owe Gorowa money and are 'in the process' of working out a payment plan.

"We acknowledge that we owe him and we are in the process of engaging him for a reasonable payment plan," Xolisani Gwesela said according to BBC Sports..

"We appeal to all our creditors to be patient as we continue to implement our debt servicing strategy."
