Former Caps United striker Leonard Tsipa has set his sights on becoming a coach after recently retiring as a player due to injury.

It may have been a painful end to his playing career but Tsipa has decided to put that behind him and focus on taking up a new challenge in coaching.

Tsipa who is part of coaches attending level one and two courses in the capital is hopeful of success in his new found career.

Also attending the courses arranged by the Zimbabwe Soccer Coaches Association is Eddie Mashiri who said former players ought to take a leading role in developing football by acquiring skills to be coaches or administrators.

Zimbabwe Football Association President, Phillip Chiyangwa who was guest of honour at the official opening ceremony urged the participants to build visions of developing talent in schools.

Level one and level two classes are running concurrently with former players such as Kelvin Mushangazhike, Marlon Jani, Daniel Kamunhenga, Elton Chimedza and Itai Gwandu among the participants.
