“What gets me is that Zimbabwean football hasn’t moved on. Yes, they get the coaches and they have disappointed. They have appointed a new coach,” Grobbelaar said during an interview with Robert Marawa on South Africa’s Radio 2000 at the weekend.
The association’s handling of the coronavirus (Covid-19) relief aid has also attracted a lot of criticism from clubs and their affiliates.
Although Fifa and Caf deposited the aid into the association’s foreign account, Zifa has gone onto convert the funds into the volatile local currency at a time when Zimbabwe is experiencing hyperinflation.
Grobbelaar, who won the European Cup in 1984 and six league titles with Liverpool, reckons that Zimbabwe has got plenty of talent but it is being hampered by the rudderless administrators at 53 Livingstone Avenue.
“The players that I played with were phenomenal players, the Ndlovu brothers (Peter, Adam and Madinda) Benjamin Nkonjera, Francis Shonhayi; we had beautiful players.”
