TRAILBLAZING former Warriors and Dynamos Football Club coach Sunday Chidzambga has announced his retirement from football coaching.
The 67-year-old Chidzambga, who became the first to captain the Warriors team after independence in 1980, told Star FM Radio this week that he will only participate in football on an advisory role.
“I can say my days as a coach are over. I’m turning 68 this year, so sitting on the bench won’t be good for me, but I can have an advisory role to help other coaches.
“Everything has to come to an end, even people can die. I played my part, if someone is not convinced, then that is his opinion, and if he respects it, that’s his opinion too.
“My time is up, I need to give others a chance, the young coaches who have modern ideas.”
Chidzambwa made history as he became the first coach to take the Warriors to the Africa Cup of Nations in 2004. He guarded the team to the tournament again in 2019.
Chidzambga also won the regional Cosafa Cup four times.
At club level, Chidzambga led Dynamos Football Club to their maiden CAF Champions League final in 1998. Locally, he also had a coaching stint at ZPC Kariba.
The respected gaffer also had coaching stints in South Africa, taking charge of Free State Stars and Black Leopards.
His last job was with the Zimbabwe national team last year, but he resigned in August following a fallout with the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) executive. – Zimbabwe Voice
