The former Harare City coach was among five coaches who were interviewed by the Mutare City Council-financed side last Friday.

Some of the coaches, who were interviewed are Gilbert Mushangazhike, Max Marume, Johannes Nhumwa and Itai Makuni.
In a statement yesterday, Rovers confirmed Dinyero’s appointment and he is expected to start today together with his assistant Kennedy Kachara.

‘’Mutare City Rovers would like to confirm the appointment of Masimba Dinyero as the team’s head coach with immediate effect. The club believes that his coaching qualifications will steer the team to greater heights,’’ the statement read.

‘’He was the most qualified and experienced gaffer among those we interviewed. Eastern Region Division One is a tough league, but we are confident that he will use his experience. We want to give him a chance to choose players of his choice.’’

Rovers were relegated last season in their debut season in the top-flight league and will be hoping for a quick return.

They face a tough fight for promotion in a league that includes another former PSL side Buffaloes.

Buffaloes had a bruising fight for the sole promotion ticket, with Yadah last season and they will fancy themselves to be successful this time around.

Buffaloes have already relocated to Rusape, a move that has irked some of their loyal fans.

Buffaloes’ failure and the relegation of Mutare City Rovers means there will be no top-flight football in Mutare this season.
