Sunday Chidzambwa has been nominated in the Coach of the Year category at the Annual National Sports Awards (ANSA) set for next month.
The Warriors gaffer will battle against national rugby sevens team coach Gilbert Nyamutsamba and Lloyd Makunde who is the national netball side mentor.
Chidzambwa won the COSAFA Cup last year, defeating Zambia 4-2 in the final. He went on to end 2018 on top of Group G of the Afcon Qualifiers. A draw against Liberia in November could have sealed a place for the Warriors at the finals but they lost the match.
Now they face Congo in the last match of the qualifiers and need only to avoid a defeat.
Chidzambwa’s other biggest highlight in the previous year was when the team beat DRC in Kinshasa before playing to a draw in Harare in the reverse fixture.
Meanwhile, Nyamutsamba and Makunde pose tough competition to Chidzambwa as the duo guided their respective sides in qualifying to the World Cups.
The awards ceremony are set for 1 March 2019, in Harare.
