FC Platinum Coach Slips Out Of The Country

Nomadic FC Platinum coach Hendrikus Pieter de Jongh left Zimbabwe on Saturday for Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) amid reports that the Dutchman went to meet potential employers in the kingdom.

De Jongh is thought to be eager on taking the Warriors job and is also believed to have engaged the Zambian Football Association.

Zambia appointed Serbian national Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic in January and gave him the freedom to choose his own backroom staff.

In a post on microblogging site Twitter on Friday, De Jongh said there is a need for players to be mentally strong and then tagged Chipolopolo. He wrote:

Beside tactical, technical and physical factors, nowadays and more than ever players have to be mentally well prepared and strong. It is possible to reach the top, but the point is how long you can stay at this top, and that is where mental strength comes in.

FC Platinum spokesperson Chido Chizondo said the coach was on leave and outside the country.
