Former Gor Mahia target, Spanish coach Antonio Flores is being targeted by Botswana giants Mochudi Centre Chiefs. The Gaborone based side is in search of Zimbabwean Bongani Mafu’s replacement.
Mafu, has led the club in six games, winning once, drawing thrice and losing twice. They sit eleventh on the 16 team table with a paltry six points from as many games. Orapa United top the table with 13 points from seven rounds.
Media reports in Gaborone have termed Flores, a former Ugandan side SC Villa tactician as the possible replacement should Mafu be served with his sacking letter in the coming days.
“Our FIFA agents are in talks with them (Mochudi Centre Chiefs) but they are taking too long to make decision. The technicality that causes delay is legal options to release current Zimbabwean coach Mafu who is under performing since the start of the league.
“But he (Flores) is the preferred candidate because rival teams are watching and therefore will expediting the process will work on Chiefs’ favour,” a source in Botswana told Soka.
Flores possesses a UEFA Pro and CAF ‘B’ License attained in Uganda while handling 16-time Ugandan Premier League champions SC Villa. He has formerly coached UD Almeria, CD Roquetas, AD Polideportivo among other clubs in Spain.
