Former Super Eagles coach Clemens Westerhof says his age is no barrier to his desire to keep working in African football as he considers new opportunities in Zimbabwe.
Westerhof coached Zimbabwe between 1998 and 2000 and worked in the Zimbabwean top flight at Dynamos in Harare.
Although the78 year-old Dutchman has a long and impressive career behind him, he still has dreams and ambitions to improve African football.
“I’m still young. In my body and soul, I’m still young. But I know, at this moment, I must do everything one step slower,” the ex-Warriors coach told BBC Sport.
“I am currently thinking about combining a job in Zimbabwe as a coach at a telecom club in Gweru together with an advisory role at a football academy, the Peter Mubi Academy.
“They want me to improve the academy, build it from the ground up. I hope I can achieve there what I’ve done in Nigeria in the past and improve the level of football in Zimbabwe in general.”
Westerhof is eager to collaborate with Dutch football clubs to make the academy in Zimbabwe a big success.
Westerhof is still revered in Nigeria where he is credited for masterminding the Super Eagles’ success in the ’90s.
