ZIFA has finally bowed down to pressure from local football fans after announcing the sacking of Croatian coach Zdravko Logarusic.
The decision to sack Logarusic was confirmed after a meeting of the ZIFA executive committee in Harare on Sunday. In a statement, ZIFA spokesperson Xolisani Gwesela revealed that the football association's board unanimously agreed that Logarusic's tenure as Warriors coach was now untenable.
The ZIFA board also resolved to disband the entire Warriors technical team which also included assistants Lloyd Chitembwe, Tonderayi Ndiraya and the recently appointed former Warriors captain Benjani Mwaruwari. "The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) would like to inform the football fraternity and the nation at large that it has amicably parted ways with Senior Men's team coach Zdravko Logarusic," Gwesela said.
"The decision was arrived at upon consideration by the full Executive Committee of all the various relevant circumstances pertaining to the coach's contract. The entire technical team has also been disbanded." ZIFA said its technical development committee has tasked in scouting for an interim coach to take charge of the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers while a substantive coach is being sought after.
