Makonese wants 'money' wars to end


Makonese said he did not have details of the new coach when he left home at the weekend to return to South Africa, however, he had been told that it was a Brazilian.“It is obviously good a new coach who has the backing of the national association has been appointed.

Obviously, being someone from a country that has a rich football background I am certain ‘Valinhos’ will add value and ensure that team progreses toward bigger and better things.”

The 30-year-old adds that there should be a balance in ensuring that the players that the Brazilian mentors are kept happy by Zifa.

“It is high time that Zifa finds the right balance as well so as to keep players focused on the job. These continual fights over money on the eve of games must end now. The association must put value on the players who do duty for the nation; then it becomes easy for players to remain focussed.”

Makonese has been a regular in the Warriors squad since making a meteoric rise in 2004 and then moving to Santos.
