Zimbabwe name two caretaker coaches for next two matches

09.08.2007


Zimbabwe have named former captain Norman Mapeza and Swiss-born coach Marc Duvillard as caretaker coaches for the next two national team games, the Zimbabwe Football Association confirmed on Thursday.

Mapeza, who played at Galatasaray in Turkey and for club sides in Poland and South Africa, recently began his coaching career at Zimbabwe premier league cub Monomotapa.

Duvillard previously coached Zimbabwe for one game in 1995 against Cameroon and again for two World Cup qualifiers against Madagascar the following year.

The pair take charge ahead of a friendly against Mozambique in Beira on Aug. 20 and Zimbabwe's last African Nations Cup qualifier against Malawi in Harare on Sept. 9.

Zimbabwe are already out of contention for a place in the 2008 finals, which led to the sacking in June of previous coach Charles Mhlauri.

Brazilian Valinhos to coach Zimbabwe

Veteran Brazilian coach Jose Claudinei has been handed the task of steering Zimbabwe to the finals of the 2010 football World Cup in neighbouring South Africa.

Claudinei, 60, commonly known as Valinhos, was unveiled at a ceremony in the capital Harare by Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) patron vice-president Joseph Msika, before signing his contract.

The former coach of Brazil's under-20 team replaces Charles Mhlauri who was sacked after the Warriors failed to qualify for the African Cup of Nations due to start in Ghana next week.

Valinhos has also coached in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Morocco as well as his native Brazil.

Zimbabwe, who have never qualified for the World Cup finals, have been drawn against Guinea, Namibia and Kenya in the qualifying rounds for the 2010 tournament.

Claudinei adds to the Brazilian flavour in the region with the World Cup-winning coach Carlos Alberto Parreira now in charge of South Africa.
