Former Warriors coach Ben Koufie has died at the age of 84. The Ghanaian coach also had coaching stints with the Botswana national team as well as his home country.
He was chairman of the Ghanaian Football Federation at one stage.
Koufie infamously stated that Zimbabwe would not qualify for any major tournament even if they imported a coach from the moon.
The statement seemed to curse the Warriors for quite some time and had to wait for 12 years to qualify for the African Cup of Nations staged in 2004. Zimbabwe has now qualified for three AFCON tournaments and will be at Gabon 2017.
