NOMADIC coach Gishon “Gizha” Ntini could be set for shock return to Caps United as he is reportedly on the Harare club’s wish-list following the departure of Taurai Mangwiro and the entire backroom staff to Harare City recently.
Ntini, who ended the last season at relegated Chiredzi FC, learnt the ropes as a junior coach at Caps United before serving as assistant coach to Charles Mhlauri in the 2004 to 2005 season.
He was elevated to head the technical department in 2006, but never lasted the distance.
However, sources told our sister paper NewsDay Sport that Ntini has a realistic chance of rejoining Caps while he is also linked with a possible move to Botswana to join struggling beMobile Premier Soccer League (PSL) side BR Highlanders.
He is not new in this foreign land after coaching former beMobile side Flamingo Santos a few years back.
The former Triangle coach’s contract at the Lowveld-based side expires on the 31th of this month.
A highly-placed source said that Ntini might join the Green Machine as he had applied for the same job last season.
“Ntini is on Caps United’s wish list because l don’t see him returning to Division One next season. After all there are two or three clubs that are chasing his signature. I think he is not a bad coach and has seen it all in the local PSL,” he said.
Ntini who is currently attending a CAF A licence coaching course at Zifa Village in Mount Hampden said he was set to decide on his future saying that there are two clubs in the country that are negotiating for a possible contract.
“Currently l am attending a CAF A licence, so l am yet to decide on my fate. But there are two clubs that have already approached me, but it’s natural especially the time we are in. There are also chances that l might return to Chiredzi FC,” he said.
“I will be able to give you my final decision early next month because at the moment l still have a running contract with Chiredzi FC,” he added.
