Former Nigeria 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.

The 78-year-old Dutchman coached Zimbabwe between 1998 and 2000, and worked in the Zimbabwean top flight at Dynanyoro in Harare.

Although Westerhof 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,” Westerhof told BBC Sport.

“I will not go in front with football shoes on and kick balls left and right – no, no, no. But I will tell them how to do it.”

“And I will choose those coaches to work with me, who must have the same idea as I have. The same feeling and passion for it that you will see,” said the Dutchman.

As he prepares for his 79th birthday this year, he says he still has much to give to football in Africa.

“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,” Westerhof said.

“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 keen to collaborate with Dutch football clubs to make the academy in Zimbabwe a big success. (Vanguard)
