Furthermore, when a coach has managed to hold onto his position for well over a decade in a country that is infamous for its fleeting relationships with its coaches, one is made to wonder if he is backed by someone powerful. Whatever it is, it is high time that questions about his fitness for his role are raised and answers are sought.
