Ngezi Platinum Stars have confirmed the departure of head coach, Benjani Mwaruwari, after the union failed to ‘deliver the expected results.’
Ngezi have since appointed Takesure Chiragwi as head coach on an interim basis, and he will be assisted by Klifton Kadulira.
ZTN Sport, however, gathered that Chiragwi has been given the mandate until the end of the season.
“Ngezi Platinum Stars Football Club would like to inform all its stakeholders that the Club has parted ways with Head Coach Benjani Mwaruwari by mutual agreement.
“This was Benjani’s first coaching assignment and both the club and the coach agreed that it did not deliver the expected results hence the decision to separate was in the best interest of the club.
“NPS FC wishes Benjani all the best in his future endeavours.
“Meanwhile, the Board has appointed Assistant Coach Takesure Chiragwi as the interim head coach assisted by Klifton Kadulira,” reads the statement.
Benjani was dismissed together with first assistant Bongani Mafu after 13 games in charge.
Mwarurai and Mafu were sacked following a string of poor results, the latest being the 1-0 loss to Yadah in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match.
The former Warriors skipper joined Ngezi on a four-year contract at the end of March this year.
He took over from Chiragwi who held the post in an interim capacity following the sacking of Rodwell Dhlakama in February.
