The Head Coach of Gaborone United Football Club, Rodolfo Zapata, has described his job as difficult due to the club’s financial troubles.
The club currently occupies the fourth position on the BTC Premiership standings with 13 points from eight matches. “We took a team that had difficult financial problems and internal politics,” Zapata told the media.
“I have learnt that politics can kill a club. At GU(Gaborone United), I am grateful for the support by the executive committee,” the Argentina-born coach said.
The former South Africa Mpumalanga Black Aces coach added that the cash situation has forced him to depend on youthful players whose inconsistency he decried.
“The problem with youngsters is that they are not consistent. But I still built a strong team with no budget. With these youngsters, Gaborone United will dominate Botswana football in the next two or three years.”
