WINNING a contract in the South African premiership is not the focus, says Zimbabwe coach Ian Gorowa, who has constantly told his players that success at CHAN 2014 is the bigger picture.

The Zimbabwe Warriors beat Burkina Faso 1-0 in Group B and advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2014 African Nations Championships along with Morocco who beat Uganda.

It was Masimba Mambare who scored the all-important goal, a brave near post header to the joy of several thousand passionate Zimbabwe fans at Athlone Stadium in Cape Town.

“I have said it before that good performances here at CHAN 2014 can open a ticket to the PSL for our players or any players in the tournament,” said coach Ian Gorowa.

“But the picture is much bigger than that – it is all about doing well in the tournament. I said to the boys that a transfer or something for their own benefit will come if the team does well and is successful in the tournament.

“We have qualified the hard way, we waited right till the end of our group. But overall we defended very well and have not conceded a goal so I am very happy with that.”

Some of the players that have stood out in this Zimbabwe team and who have attracted the interest of people within South Africa’s PSL circles are goalkeeper George Chigova as well as midfielders Kuda Mahachi and Masimba Mambare.

“I think our goalkeeper, George Chigova, who has attracted a lot of attention is still young and can improve,” Gorowa offers.

“Look, I’m happy that we have such a player in the team. But I must mention everybody. The total commitment of everybody must be commended.”
