CHICKEN Inn are not happy with Zifa’s conduct after the announcement of Joey Antipas as the Warriors assistant coach without their knowledge.
The Gamecocks spokesperson Tavengwa Hara said they learnt of the appointment though the media.
He said they were only aware that Antipas had applied for the Warriors top job – which makes the assistant coach role a different arrangement.
“We were not consulted, we were not advised and we only got the news through the media. Yes, we knew Antipas had applied for the Warriors Coach job but this is now a different situation,” said Hara.
Antipas has a three-year contract with Chicken Inn and H-Metro gathered the top brass at the Bulawayo club want him focus on his job alone.
Sources at the club told H-Metro that they feel Warriors commitment also cost them the championship last season.
“He still has a contract with Chicken Inn and Zifa decides to hold a press conference without engaging the club.
“In fact, there is the felling that this contributed to the stutter in the championship race. There were going to be arrangements if he had landed the top job but this is something different and they should have enquired with the club first if he is available,” said the source.
