Zdravko Logarusic, best remembered in Kenya for his time in charge of record champions Gor Mahia has left his role as Head Coach as Head Coach of the Zimbabwean national team.

In a statement, Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) spokesperson Xolisani Gwesela revealed that the football association’s board unanimously agreed that Logarusic’s tenure as coach was now untenable.


The ZIFA board also resolved to disband the entire technical team which also included assistants Lloyd Chitembwe, Tonderayi Ndiraya and the recently appointed former 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.


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

Loga also coached Gor's bitter rivals AFC Leopards during a second stint in Kenya.
