Newly appointed Warriors Coach, Norman Mapeza has pledged to give his best to ensure that Zimbabwe resumes its 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign this month.
The Level 4 and CAF C licensed coach and former Warriors Captain says he has accepted his reappointment with an open heart, despite having thrown in the towel just a few months back citing differences in principles.
â€œI had resigned yes but I am a Zimbabwean and my passion for the Warriors made me accept my reappointment and I promise I will give my best to ensure Zimbabwe qualifies,â€ said Mapeza.
Mapeza shared optimism going into Zimbabweâ€™s next AFCON qualifier against the Eagles of Mali, hinting it is a crucial fixture that will decide the fate for the Warriors.
â€œI know my team but all I can say is the Mali match is a crucial decider that will define our destiny,â€ Mapeza added.
Mapeza will be ably assisted by reigning championship winners coach, Joey Antipas and Richard Tswatswa as goalkeepers coach, while Sharif Mussa has bounced back as Team Manager.
