Zuze given full-time contract
Monomotapa have appointed stand-in coach Biggie Zuze on a full time basis on a one-year contract, they have confirmed.
Zuze took over the reins when coach Taurayi Mangwiro was banned for his involvement in the Asiagate scandal.
Last season, Zuze led Monomotapa to fourth place on the league table and was the only coach who beat Highlanders in the league – while he also took the team all the way to the Mbada Diamonds Cup final, where they lost to league champions Dynamos.
Monoz chairman Joseph Mukoti confirmed to Supersport.com that they have given Zuze the one-year contract to see if he can continue his good work.
He said that they looked at his performance from last season and they believe that the coach deserved the opportunity to take the job on a full-time basis.
“Yes we have agreed terms with Biggie for one year. He did very well after taking over and we couldn’t ignore what he did with the team and that is why we have decided to give him the job,” Mukoti said.
Zuze has been given the mandate to choose his own assistants, having taken over with the previous technical team still intact. Last season he was assisted by George Jojo, who has now been given back his job in the team’s development structures.
