Zimbabwe sack coach Logarusic after 1 win in 14 matches

Ghana’s next opponents in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers, Zimbabwe have sacked head coach Zdravko Logarusic due to poor performance.

Since his appointment in January 2020, the  55-year-old Croat supervised the men’s senior national team to just one win in 14 games, 8 of them being defeats and the remaining 5 ending in stalemates.

The last straw that broke the camel’s back was the results chalked by the Warriors at the start of the penultimate round of the African qualifiers to the Qatar 2022 Fifa World Cup.

Zimbabwe played to a barren draw at home to South Africa which was followed by a cruel defeat in stoppage time away to Ethiopia.

A displeased Executive Committee of ZIFA decided to try and stop the rot by dispensing with the services of Logarusic and his entire technical team.

An official statement Sunday read:

“The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) would like to inform the football fraternity and the entire country at large that it has amicably parted ways with senior men’s team coach Zdravko Logarusic.

“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.

“The appointment of the interim technical team shall be announced in due course as the Executive Committee has already set in motion the process.”

Zimbabwe will be racing against time to make new appointments as they face Ghana in a doubleheader early next month in the World Cup qualifiers.
