Zimbabwe coach Ian Gorowa has resigned as the national side’s coach following differences with the country’s football association.

The Herald newspaper in Zimbabwe published a letter within which Gorowa stated he had not been paid for seven months. Having taken over from German Klaus Dieter Pagels in July last year, Gorowa lost just two of his 17 matches in charge.

The 42-year-old led The Warriors to the semi-finals of the African Nations Championship earlier this year, which he also states he is owed pay. A bonus payment for his success with his side is also yet to be paid to him.

Gorowa’s dispute is one of a number of money problems for African football over recent months, particularly so ahead of this summer’s World Cup in Brazil. Cameroon departed 12 hours later than scheduled for the World Cup with disputes over bonus payments. Whilst Nigeria and Ghana players also clashed with their respective football associations over appearance fees and bonuses.
