I'm too good for Dynamos - Gorowa

HARARE - Former Zimbabwe coach Ian Gorowa yesterday distanced himself from the soon-to-be vacant Dynamos post, saying “I’m too good for local clubs”.

Gorowa has been linked with the Dynamos post after Calisto Pasuwa announced he will be leaving the club when his contract expires at the end of the year.

Pasuwa, who won his fourth straight league title with the Glamour Boys on Sunday, has made it clear he will depart when his contract expires on december 31.

Amid the uncertainty over Pasuwa’s future, sources within the Dynamos camp told the Daily News this week that Gorowa was being earmarked to replace the four-time title winning coach with negotiations believed to be in progress.

However, Gorowa yesterday insisted he will never coach a club side in his homeland. 

“I have made it clear that I will not coach a local club in Zimbabwe,” Gorowa told the Daily News from South Africa yesterday.

“There is nothing like that. I am not negotiating with anyone at Dynamos. In fact, I have no plans to come and coach in Zimbabwe. Whoever told you that was lying.

“The last time I spoke to (Kenny) Mubaiwa is some four or six months ago and it was business. I am not thinking of coaching any team in Zimbabwe.”

Gorowa made similar comments two years ago when he was once linked with the CAPS United job, stating at the time that he would only return to Zimbabwe to coach the national side.

The 43-year-old would later be appointed Zimbabwe coach, but is currently out of work after stepping down as Warriors coach in August. 

The former Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroka swallows coach had been appointed Zimbabwe coach in July 2013, replacing German national Klaus Dieter-Pagels.

His rein began on a positive note, guiding Zimbabwe to the 2014 African Nations Championships (Chan) finals in South Africa.

The Warriors reached the semi-finals of the competition before losing to eventual winners Libya on penalties.

However, things went pear-shaped when Zimbabwe were eliminated from the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at the first huddle after losing to minnows Tanzania.

Gorowa resigned on the eve of a Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) board meeting that was set to decide his fate.

You have simply gone big headed Gorowa, what have you achieved that makes you think you are too good for our local teams. Being a loose canon with your mouth will lead you to regret one day.

Too big headed Gorowa when he has achieved absolutely nothing in his coaching career. Pasuwa has achieved what even the legendary Mhofu failed to do, so big up. Gorowa u have to first prove yourself before declaring yourself too good.

Gorowa is too good for nothing. When he was hired as the Warriors coach, he acted more like a player agent than a coach. This joke of a coach should simply shut up.
