Warriors Coach, Zdravko Logarusic, Survives Axe
4 August 2021
Beleaguered Warriors coach Zdravko Logarusic has survived for now after the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) board failed to meet last weekend to deliberate on his fate.
The ZIFA board was expected to meet last weekend to deliberate on recommendations made by its technical development committee on Logarusic and his technical staff at the COSAFA Cup in South Africa last month.

ZIFA communications and competitions manager Xolisani Gwesela on Tuesday told State media that there was nothing to report on the Warriors’ technical team, as the board did not meet. Said Gwesela:
They will meet, and once they do, you’ll be briefed on what they deliberated on.
The Warriors returned from the COSAFA Cup tournament without a win and even failed to go beyond the group stage.
Since he was appointed Warriors coach, Logarusic has only managed one win from 12 games, with four draws and seven defeats.
With under a month left before their 2022 World Cup qualifier against South Africa, the Warriors are likely to be under Logarusic for the match. The match may give the Croat a lifeline to redeem himself.
