ZIFA has reportedly announced it will not ask warriors coach Zdravko Logarusic to take a salary cut, The Herald reports. The football body reportedly said it was still in a stable financial position despite the pandemic that brought the world to its knees.
This was revealed by ZIFA President Felton Kamambo who said:
We did our plan before hiring him so we will continue to pay our coach according to our contract. I am not expecting the board to make drastic charges on that.We are happy that for the first time the association is able to meet their financial obligations regarding the coach’s welfare.
We don’t owe him any cent. We also don’t owe any of our staff members any money. ZIFA had gained notoriety for not paying coaches and at one time it even cost us a run in the World Cup qualifiers. But those are now things of the past. We have opened a new leaf as the association.
Logarusic who was employed a month before football went into lockdown due to COVID-19 is believed to be earning USD $7 000. per month according to the publication.
