Edelbert Dinha Blasts Logarusic
26 July 2021

Former Warriors and Orlando Pirates midfielder Edelbert Dinha has added his voice to growing calls for the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) to sack under-fire Warriors’ coach Zdravko Logarušic.

Dinha described the Croat as clueless and someone who doesn’t understand football. He said:

We should get another coach honestly. Just look at the type of football we are playing; there is no identity at all, we have quality players but are not being used to the best of their abilities. How many games has he won out of 12 games?

Calls for Loga’s sacking were amplified following the Warriors’ run of miserable results in the CHAN and COSAFA Cup tournaments, which the Warriors exited without registering a single win.

However, the Croat has defended his poor record, saying CHAN and COSAFA tournaments are mere preparatory events he used to try out other players for AFCON and World Cup qualifiers.

Dinha believes that despite securing a ticket to the AFCON finals, Logarusic is not the right man to take the Warriors forward. Added Dinha:

I understand we qualified for Afcon, but how we qualified will tell us exactly how we are going to play there.

Time for a change, locally-based coaches that understand us or get someone that understands football.

Early this week, Warriors and Bosso legend Alexander Maseko also called for Loga’s sacking, saying “He won’t take us anywhere”.- Chronicle
