Frenchman, Didier Gomes da Rosa has been linked with the vacant Zebras job after the Botswana Football Association (BFA) fired Mogomotsi 'Teenage' Mpote this week.

Da Rosa is in charge of Al-Taraji, a second division side in Saudi Arabia but is reportedly on the verge of leaving. The nomadic coach has previously coached Simba SC of Tanzania and has had numerous coaching jobs that have seen him handling eight teams in just three seasons. Since 2010, the 54-year-old has coached 15 teams across two continents.
