Zimbabwe Sack Coach After Poor World Cup Qualifier Results


Croatian Zdravko Logarusic on Sunday became the second Zimbabwe football team coach to be sacked after the Warriors’ poor start in Group G with a 0-0 home draw against South Africa followed by a 1-0 away loss to Ethiopia, leaving them bottom of the table in 2022 World Cup group-phase qualifying in Africa.

His exit follows that of Hossam el Badry, who was also sacked as coach of Egypt and replaced by former Real Madrid manager and Manchester United assistant Carlos Queiroz.

Criticism of Logarusic had grown since last January when Zimbabwe were beaten by hosts Cameroon, Burkina Faso and Mali to make a humiliating early exit from the African Nations Championship.

Zimbabwe will play Ghana twice in October and South Africa and Ethiopia the following month in other World Cup qualifiers.
