Chidzambwa, by far Zimbabwe’s most successful soccer coach, is now in charge of South African ABSA Premiership side – Black Leopards, who are struggling for form with only six points in seven starts in the league so far.

With rumours being rekindled recently that the coach could be shown the door due to poor results, Chidzambwa told The Zimbabwean in Johannesburg early this week that he was confident of turning the corner with the club he led to winning promotion from the First Division and reaching the Nedbank Cup final last season.

“Coaches and players come and go and that is normal in the game of football. Once you are hired, what remains is for you to be fired. That is our daily bread, but I am not feeling any pressure at all because I am doing things the way they should be done and I believe that very soon, the results will start coming,” said the former Dynamos and Zimbabwe Warriors mentor, who attributed his side’s poor showing more to lack of form than anything else.

“In football, every team goes through a bad spell at some point and that is the kind of phase we are in right now, but I am sure that we are going to quickly overcome the problem.”

On whether there could be any substance to the notion that the Black Leopards management was going impatient with him, Chidzambwa would not issue any comment.

“That is not for me to say. My job is to work with the team and that is as far as I can comment, on technical matters.”
