The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) has appointed a new Warriors technical team led by Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas.

Antipas will be assisted by Under-23 coach Tonderai Ndiraya and Lloyd Chitembwe while Wellington Mpandare remains the Team Manager..

ZIFA said in a statement: “Acting on recommendations of technical development committee, The Zimbabwe Football Association executive committee has appointed Joey Antipas as the caretaker head coach of the senior men’s team until 31 December 2019.”

“Under-23 coach Tonderai Ndiraya and Lloyd Chitembwe have been appointed as assistant coaches for the same period.

“Highlanders, Tembo Chuma is the new goalkeepers’ coach for the senior national team.”

The contracts of the new technical team will run until 31 December 2019 and their first assignment is on next month in the World Cup qualifiers against Somalia.

The new set-up, meanwhile, comes in following the resignation of Sunday Chidzambwa last month. It has also replaced an interim team led by Rahman Gumbo which was appointed ahead of the 2020 CHAN qualifier against Mauritius.
