Bruce Grobbelaar eyeing Warriors job


Former SuperSport United coach Bruce Grobbelaar has vowed that he is ready to coach the Zimbabwe national team.

Following the Warriors’ 0-1 defeat at the hands of Ethiopia on Tuesday, pressure is mounting on Zifa to axe Croatian coach Zdravko Logarusi. The former AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia coach has only picked up one win in 14 games, losing eight times.

The former Liverpool goalkeeper has thrown his name in the hat for the national team job. He has previously managed the national team, with his first spell coming in 1997 as a player-coach and then in 1998 on a full time basis.

In an interview on Alois Bunjira’s In Touch With Legends, the 63-year-old said he wants to return to Warriors fold should the post become vacant anytime from now.

“I would like to have the last dance with the Warriors right now,” he said.

Grobbelaar believes the man in charge of the Warriors is not good enough for the job. “They (ZIFA) already have got someone (Zdravko Logarusic) whom I feel hasn’t been the best…

“He is probably the worst manager the country has ever had, and that’s saying something.”

According to sources in Harare, Zifa are considering letting his contract run down. Logarusic has three months left on his deal, but with the Warriors set to participate in the Africa Cup of Nations finals in January, they are under pressure to get a new man in charge.

The Warriors sit at the basement of Group G in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers with one point while Bafana Bafana are at the top with four points. Both teams have played two games so far.
