Tonderayi Ndiraya has wished Ngezi Platinum Stars well despite a shock sacking on Tuesday.
The Mhondoro-based side issued a statement on Tuesday saying Ndiraya’s departure was by mutual consent. The coach spent two and a half years at the club, winning the Chibuku Super Cup in 2016.
Speaking after his sacking, Ndiraya said: “I love Ngezi Platinum Stars because they gave me a platform and some success with them. I wish them all the success in the remaining matches and their future endeavours.”
Meanwhile, former Dynamos coach Calisto Pasuwa is widely speculated to be the next coach to take over. Pasuwa’s agent Gibson Mahachi has been frequenting Ngezi very often these days and attending their home matches. The gaffer has also been linked with a move to Dembare, but it now looks his next destination is most likely to be in Mhondoro.
Ngezi Platinum are still within a chance to wrestle the title from their rivals FC Platinum Stars as they are five points behind with five games left before the end of the season.
