By Anashe Murombedzi

Football stakeholders have challenged the Zimbabwe Football Association to appoint an experienced local coach to lead the Warriors after Croatian Zdravko Logarusic was fired.

As the football fraternity logged out from the Loga network, the question now is: Who should be the next Warriors Coach?

There is no time to worst with Zimbabwe set to face West African giants, Ghana in back to back World Cup qualifiers set for next month.

The return legs against Ethiopia and South Africa will also be played before the end of the year while there is also need to prepare well for the 2021 AFCON finals slated for Cameroon in January next year.

Renowned coaches’ instructor Gibson Homela believes the country has enough experienced coaches to take charge of the Warriors.

“I wonder if the next coach that they are going to appoint will have enough time to get together a national team before the matches, but the biggest thing is we need a local coach with experience in the domestic and international scene to lead the nation and we have them around, let’s get the right one,” he said.

Football fans are also convinced that a local coach who has institutional memory is the best with FC Platinum Coach Norman Mapeza the firm favourite.

The football mother body is expected to announce the new coach and a revamped technical department this Tuesday.
