Will ZIFA Appoint Former Manchester City Striker Benjani Mwaruwari Warriors Coach After Firing Logarusic?

Warriors Team Coaches Zdravko Logarusic, Benjani Mwaruwari, Lloyd Chitembe and Tonderayi Ndiraya.

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — Former Zimbabwe Warriors captain and ex-Manchester City forward Benjani Mwaruwari is considered a candidate to replace Croatian Zdravko Logarusic, who was fired on Sunday.

The Zimbabwe Football association sacked Logarusic after taking just one point from two games in World Cup qualifying.

Logarusic was appointed in February 2020 but a run of bad form came to a head with a 0-0 draw with South Africa and a 1-0 loss to Ethiopia in World Cup qualifying this month.

The Zimbabwe Football Association said a new coach will be named before the two World Cup qualifiers against Ghana next month.

Mwaruwari was made an assistant coach with the national team two weeks ago and is now tipped to get the head coach job.
