I am not concerned- Mpote


Zebras coach, Mogomotsi 'Teenage' Mpote, says he is not concerned about his future after an indifferent run of results of late. Mpote was appointed Zebras coach last year November but is still finding his feet after the team failed to qualify for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations finals and were knocked out of the COSAFA Cup in the group stages.

The latest defeat came at the hands of Tunisia, a 3-0 shellacking on September 7, which cranked pressure on Mpote. But the Botswana Football Association (BFA) is calm with Mpote's situation and so is the coach. BFA chief executive officer, Mfolo Mfolo told The Monitor's sister publication, Mmegi that there are no pending talks with the coach over the results. He said Mpote remains the Zebras coach, an indication of the confidence the association has in the former Orapa United mentor.

Talking to The Monitor, Mpote said he was not concerned about his position as his 'real' work starts with the World Cup qualifiers, which kick-off in November. "I am not," Mpote said when quizzed if he was concerned about his future. "I start my campaign on November 18 (World Cup qualifiers)," he added.
