Zdravko Logarusic appointed Zimbabwe Warriors coach

Zimbabwe Football Association have appointed Zdravko Logarusic as the new head coach of the national team.

The Croatian trainer is replacing Sunday “Mhofu” Chidzambwa who left his post as the Warriors coach after a group stage exit at 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The former Gor Mahia, Asante Kotoko SC, AshantiGold SC and King Faisal Babes coach will be assisted by Joey Antipas during his spell with the Warriors.

Logarusic is expected to guide Zimbabwe to secure a place in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations which will be held in Cameroon.

The 57-year-old is also expected to lead the Southern African country to the 2022 World Cup.

Zimbabwe have been drawn in the same group alongside Ghana, South Africa and Ethiopia for the qualifications for the global tournament.

The Warriors are sitting at the second place in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers behind Algeria and are followed by Botswana and Zambia in that order.

Logarusic saw his contract with Sudan not renewed in December 2019 after it expired.
