Madzivanyika for the Green Machine


FORMER Eagles coach Mike “Dread” Madzivanyika has sailed through in an interview held for the assistant coach position at Harare football giants Caps United and is now set to be installed as one of Taurai Mangwiro’s assistants.


Mangwiro, who is the head coach of the Harare giants, had recommended the recruitment of two assistant coaches to the club’s board of directors following the departure of Saul Chaminuka, who joined premiership newboys ZPC Kariba.

Although Mangwiro was not at liberty to disclose the other assistant coach he had recommended to the board, he revealed yesterday that the board had already interviewed Mike Madzivanyika after he recommended him for the job.

He said he could not disclose the other candidate at the present time because he was yet to be interviewed.

It also emerged that former goalkeeper’s coach Brenna Msiska failed the interview by the board and is now set to be reassigned to the juniors.

“I can confirm that I recommended Madzivanyika to the board to be one of my assistant coaches. He has already been interviewed and an announcement will be made when they are through with the interview,” Mangwiro said.

“I can’t disclose the other candidate I recommended because he is yet to be interviewed.

“Once they are through with the interview, we will let you know.”

However, reports yesterday suggested that veteran goalkeepers’ trainer Richard Tswatswa is one of the coaches set to be interviewed for the position of goalkeepers’ coach.

Tswatswa, who is also the Warriors’ goalkeepers’ coach, is still in South Africa with the national team for the African Nations Championship.

Mangwiro is assessing over 90 players who are undergoing trials as the Harare giants step up their preparations for the 2014 soccer season.

The Caps United gaffer said he would pick only three players from this group, but reports suggested yesterday that James Matola (37), popularly known as Van Damme, had caught the eye.

Former Dynamos midfielder Eddie Mashiri is also believed to have made an impression during the ongoing trials while Evans Gwekwerere, who was also being assessed, is understood to have failed to make the cut.
“Everyone is fighting to be picked. These players
want to be associated with the Caps United brand. As coach, it is my discretion to choose who I want depending on the department I need to be strengthened. So I still have Friday (today) to make a decision),” Mangwiro said.
