Zimbabwe: Mangwiro Ends Five-Year Flirtation With Triangle

Chiredzi — WARRIORS interim assistant coach Taurayi Mangwiro is set to end his five-year flirtation with Premiership football side Triangle when his contract expires at the end of this month.

Mangwiro and his assistants Tafadzwa Mashiri and Innocent Chogugudza opted against extending their contracts at the Lowveld-based side.

The decision came as a shock to the Lowveld faithful.

Mangwiro and his assistants announced the news when the community had thought the wheels were beginning to roll after registering two big wins against Dynamos and away to ZPC Kariba in the league.

Triangle are fourth in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League standings with six points out of possible nine. The league has since taken a break for the Christmas holidays as well as the AFCON finals to be held in Cameroon next month.

Mangwiro has already left Triangle to join national team camp for the Africa Cup of Nations where he is assistant to national team coach Norman Mapeza.

“My contract is expiring on December 31 and I indicated that I won’t be extending my contract. I had to share this with the players since I knew that well before the Dynamos game.

“I had to share with Triangle executive as well since I was about to leave for national camp. I didn’t want them to read from the media in case they have their plans with or without me.

“My assistants, Tafadzwa Mashiri and Innocent Chogugudza also indicated the same. So the three of us will not be with the team in the new year”, said Mangwiro
