Struggling Bulawayo City will pay their former coach Amini Soma Phiri a monthly salary till the end of the year.

Phiri was dismissed from his post last month after posting poor results which have seen the club failing to move away from the relegation zone since taking over in May. He was contracted until the end of the year.

According to B-Metro, Amini will get a salary between $1000 and $1500.

The club’s public relations officer Thandiwe Moyo confirmed the news to the publication but could not reveal the monetary figures.

“It was through mutual consent that we parted ways with Phiri. I can confirm that he is going to get his monthly dues until the end of the year,” Moyo said.

“We never discussed anything with regards to a lump golden handshake.”

Meanwhile, assistant coach Bekithemba Ndlovu will oversee the team for the rest of the campaign on an interim basis. City are currently in the 16th position with 15 points.
