BENJANI Mwaruwari has made it clear that he will take the Warriors job if given the opportunity. The former Warriors captain and Manchester City striker was speaking during ZTN’s weekly football show, The Couch, on Tuesday.

“Of course I will take it,” Benjani said after being asked if he would take the offer.

“In terms of coaching, there are a lot of things you must have. One of them is that you must be lucky. As a former footballer, 90 percent of the things being done, it is easy and you already know it.”

Benjani recently took his coaching badges.

“They teach you how to manage players, they teach you a lot of things, things that didn’t matter to you when you were still a player,” he said.

His statements come at a time when Warriors coach Zdravko Logarusic is in the spotlight following a poor run of results in Afcon qualifiers, Chan and Cosafa.

Unless things change dramatically, upcoming World Cup qualifiers against South Africa, Ethiopia and Ghana could be the final nail on his future.

That will be before the Afcon finals in January next year.

Asked on his preferences when it comes to coaches for Zimbabwe, Benjani said he prefers local coaches.

“I prefer a local guy even though I now have the badges. That way we will be supporting the former players,” said Benjani.
