The widow of former Dream Team (Warriors) coach Reinhard Fabisch, Chawada, has backed her late husband’s longtime friend and compatriot, Hans Michael Weiss, to take the Warriors job.
Speaking to The Herald, Chawada said the 54-year old German national has a passion for working in Africa, and in Zimbabwe, in particular. She said:
I’ve known Michael Weiss for over 15 years now, and ever since I met him he has always had an interest in Africa and, Zimbabwe, in particular.
Naturally, his interest in the Warriors was sparked by his friendship with my late husband, Reinhard Fabisch.
The team’s success was so inspiring to him, that’s why he sees this moment in time as his opportunity to take the Warriors further than they have ever been before.
Weiss is one among several foreign coaches who have applied for the Warriors job which fell vacant following Sunday Chidzambgwa’s resignation in July.
The German holds a Masters Degree of Sports Science from Johannes Guttenberg University in Mainz, Germany, and a UEFA PRO-License he acquired in 2014.
He has coached football in Japan, China, Rwanda, Romania, and Burundi.
