ZIFA Vice President, Gift Banda today announced the replacement of Warriors assistants; Rahman Gumbo and Lloyd Mutasa, with Bongani Mafu and Tonderayi Ndiraya, who have been tasked with leading the Zimbabwe under-23 national soccer team.
Sunday Chidzambwa remains head coach but Gumbo and Mutasa were dismissed with Mafu and Ndiraya being brought in as their replacements.
