FC PLATINUM head coach Lloyd Mutasa’s stay at the Zvishavane side is uncertain as the executive is still to decide if they will renew his contract which expires on December 31.
Mutasa joined the club in June on an acting capacity taking over from then head coach Tennant Chilumba who relocated to his country Zambia to join Power Dynamos.
FC Platinum president George Mawere yesterday said they were yet to decide on the future of the coach.
“Mutasa’s contract expires at the end of the year, but for now I cannot say whether his contract will be extended or not. There are a lot of procedures to be followed. We will meet early next year to decide because for now we are on a break,” he said.
“We are happy with the performance of Mutasa since he joined us. As for beefing up the squad, we do not tell the coaches which players to bring on board. The coach, whoever will be appointed, or even Mutasa will have a say on the players they want.
“For now we are on a break. We should meet early next year to discuss that, but we will resume our preparations for the season in February,” he said.
FC Platinum announced in June that Mutasa would be in charge of the Midlands side until the end of the year.
“In line with its quest to enhance excellence at its soccer academy based at Guinea Fowl in Gweru and Under-19 team currently in Division One, FC Platinum Football Club have appointed Lloyd Mutasa as its talent development coach.
“Over and above his role, Mutasa will also work as acting head coach of FC Platinum until the end of this year.
“He will be assisted in that role by Tendai Chikuni as his first assistant,” the statement by Mawere read.
