Zimbabwe Coach Sacked After World Cup Qualifying Loss

South Africa's Group G rivals Zimbabwe have sacked head coach Zdravko Logarusic after their poor start to the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Warriors started the qualifying campaign with a goalless draw against Bafana Bafana on home soil before they suffered defeat to Ethiopia.

That loss last Tuesday left Zimbabwe at the bottom of the group and seemingly sealed Logarusic's fate, along with the entire technical team.

"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," a statement from ZIFA read.

"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."

International football returns next month once again, when the Warriors take on Ghana in a double-header looking to get their first win in the group.
