Yadah have appointed a new coach to replace Thomas Ruzive who left the club to join Black Rhinos last month.

The Stars roped in unheralded former ZRP Football Club captain Genesis Mangombe. According to the Herald, club chairman Everson Chatambudza revealed that they have already agreed on personal terms with Mangombe and have written a letter to the ZRP for authority to use his services.

“As you might be aware, we parted ways in harmony with coach Thomas Ruzive and the whole of his technical team at the end of the 2018 season.

“We are pleased to announce that we have agreed with Genesis Mangombe from the ZRP to be our coach for the 2019 season, pending the reply which we believe will be positive from the police for his release.

“We are very hopeful that he will deliver on the club’s objectives and targets,” said Chatambudza.

Mangombe is a holder of a CAF A coaching licence which he attained in 2017. He has spent most of his coaching career in the lower divisions with clubs that include ZRP Harare and Hetchford FC.
