FORMER Warriors coach Gibson Homela says the lack of quality, on the domestic football scene, is shocking and no player from Highlanders, FC Platinum and Dynamos deserve a place in the Warriors.

He says he won’t be tempted to take the national team job.

“I have watched Highlanders, who are top of the table, and they are not impressive,” said Homela.

“Some time I watched Dynamos and FC Platinum, they were even worse.

“None of the players deserve to be in the national team from those teams.

“Surprisingly, these are top teams in the country.

“The quality of players for the national team is not there.

“The worrying part is that we will find it hard to play and win against other countries.”

Homela, who appeared on the Soccer Stars of the Year calendar a number of times in his playing days, challenged players to raise their game.

“The onus is on the players to improve themselves if they really want to be selected for the national team.

“There’s no way a coach will be happy with the low calibre of players we have.

“The players have to do extra work on their part.” Homela is a former national team coach who was sent abroad to train in Germany by ZIFA.

He was manager of the first Zimbabwe team to win the COSAFA Cup in 2000, where he was working with Misheck Chidzambwa and Barry Daka.
