LUKE Masomere is set to be appointed Castle Premiership football side Buffaloes new coach by the end of the week, NewsDay Sport can reveal.
The nomadic gaffer, who has been operating without a contract at Shabanie Mine, was spotted in Mutare on Tuesday in the company of the army side’s spokesperson Tendai Chitowa.
The soldiers fired their two assistants Timothy Masachi and Shadreck Magurasave after their Saul Chaminuka resigned as the club’s head coach on Monday.
The army side is currently making frantic efforts to fill the vacant post that has been left by Chaminuka and on Tuesday, Warriors fringe player Prosper Matizanadzo is said to have been leading the troops through their paces at Mutare Showgrounds.
NewsDay Sport spotted Masomere with Chitowa before committee member Regai Tsunga joined the discussions.
Asked if he was willing to fill the void left by Chaminuka, the outspoken coach said all depended on contractual terms.
“So far I have not discussed anything with them. If they approach me and if we agree on certain terms then l don’t see anything wrong coming to Buffaloes,” he said.
Chitowa said: “l am yet to speak to him. We have many coaches we want to interview, but at the moment we can’t disclose the names.”
Former Caps United coaches Lloyd Chitembwe and Max Jongwe are also linked with a move to the army side although Masomere has now emerged as the outright favourite.
