RAHMAN Gumbo's future as Chicken Inn coach is hanging by a thread amid revelations that he was sitting on a one game ultimatum ahead of last weekend's round of fixtures which the Gamecocks lost 0-1 to cross-town rivals Bulawayo City.

It has emerged that the under-fire gaffer was supposed to be axed last week before the outgoing league champions' tie against Bulawayo City due to a string of poor results but, the club's leadership then resolved that the former FC Platinum coach be given another chance to prove himself against City.

The team's management is expected to announce its position on Gumbo who has failed to make an impact with a club which was touted as one of the title favourites early in the season given that they had managed to retain most of the players who starred in the Gamecocks maiden championship triumph last season.

Gumbo has failed to meet the standards set by his predecessor Joey Antipas who delivered the league title for the modest club last season before taking on the best of African clubs in the Caf Champions League only to be controversially eliminated by Khama Billiat's Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa in the first round of the competition.
