The Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) has appointed Brazilian-born Highlanders coach, Baltermar Brito as interim manager of the country’s senior men’s team.
He will be assisted by Bongani Mafu and Genesis Mangombe.
“The Normalisation Committee (NC) settled for the trio after an extensive recruitment and consultative process based on regional, continental, and global confederations’ guidelines. The NC set the coaches’ term of engagement to end at the same time with its mandate so that the next board will have the opportunity to recruit its own coaches,” ZIFA said in a statement on Thursday.
According to ZIFA, Brito, who holds the UEFA Pro coaching license, will lead the Warriors in an invitational match to celebrate Botswana’s Independence Day next week.
Thereafter, the gaffer will take the squad to the African Nations Championships next month and the World Cup qualifiers in November among other assignments until June 2024.
