Harare City FC coach, Mark Harrison, has left the club, with long-time ally and former assistant at Caps United, Mark Mathe taking temporary charge.
Harrison was absent from the bench during City’s 1-1 draw against TelOne at Luveve on Sunday.
Harrison reportedly threatened to quit the club following what he considered unfair refereeing decisions against his club.
His departure has been confirmed by club chief executive Tafadzwa Bhasera. He said:
Our head coach, Mark Harrison, has left his post. He has his own reasons and we had to respect that.
We would like to thank him for the work he did for the team in the past one-and-a-half years he has been in charge.
We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
Meanwhile, there are concerns that Harrison’s departure could leave the club’s hyped historic pact with Nottingham Forest in disarray.
He had initiated partnership talks early this year and last month, Forest made the first move after inviting juniors’ coaches from Harare City to come for attachment in England.
Bhasera, however, maintained that the partnership will not be affected whatsoever since Harrison and Harare City parted ways by mutual consent.
