Gorowa in talks with SAs Dynamos

ian_gorowaPRETORIA South African-based Zimbabwean coach, Ian Gorowa (pictured), who made a name for himself as a fierce winger for Harare giants Dynamos during the 1990s, might find himself coaching a lower division team.

Dynamos, who play in the South African National First Division, are negotiating with Gorowa as they continue their hunt for a person to replace former coach, Jacob Cellular Sakala, who is no longer with the club.

A South African player agent, who refused to be named in fear of jeopardizing the negotiations, told The Zimbabwean that Gorowa might be able to find common ground with officials at the club before the start of the 2010/11 season as the talks have been positive.

They are yet to agree to anything in writing, but it is likely to happen before the start of the season because both parties seem to be finding common ground. Gorowa is very experienced and could help the team get back to the topflight league, said the agent.

In order to make it into the Premiership, it only makes sense for a club to engage the services of a coach who has been exposed to the football played at that level, he added.

Gorowa, who has not taken charge of any club since he was sacked by Thanda Royal Zulu as their assistant coach two seasons ago, had taken a sabbatical from the game before considering his next move.

Thanda Royal Zula decided to part ways with Gorowa after the team slipped to number 15 on the log in 2008 during a season that eventually saw them being relegated from the topflight league.

Gorowa, who scored 11 goals for the Warriors in 26 appearances, moved to South Africa during the height of his career with Harare side Dynamos and managed to secure a contract with the then-Cape Town Spurs.

As an assistant coach to Mushin Ertugral at Ajax Cape Town (after Cape Town Spurs and Ajax Cape Town were merged), Gorowa was part of the team that managed to win the 2007 ABSA Cup, which to date is his only piece of silverware in South Africa.
