“We told the minister what we can offer for the new coach and he promised to take the matter on to establish how much the government can contribute,” FUFA president Moses Magogo told Daily Monitor.
“After Kalusha doing his selection job, the job is left to me to table the names to the executive committee for deliberation.”
Magogo revealed that there are local coaches amongst the final five, but they all require a bumper salary tagged on a foreign coach.
In addition, Magogo refuted rumours that they have already selected Free State Stars coach, Luc Eymael, for the coveted post currently held by Moses Basena on an interim basis.
