Mutizwa no longer Rhinos coach
29 December 2017
STANFORD ‘Stix’ Mutizwa is no longer the head coach at Black Rhinos after he has been reassigned to an undisclosed position.
There were reports that Mutizwa has left the club under unclear circumstances but the club’s secretary general Camble Sithole dismissed the claims.
He said Mutizwa he has been reassigned to another position and is still within the ranks of Chauya Chipembere.
Sithole said, “Mutizwa is still part of Rhinos he has been reassigned to another position within the team.”
The secretary general was responding to questions concerning the club’s end of year awards which were held in the capital Wednesday night.
Sithole said they have since resumed talks with players to renew their contracts, among them Benjamin Marere.
He said Marere contributed and assisted in most of Black Rhinos goals and his contract is due and talks are underway to decide his future.
“Marere is still with us he has been very valuable to the team and decisions are yet to be made within the technical department.
“He has been one of our best players and it would be great to have him around for next season.”
On Wednesday the club honoured some of its players for their performance this season.
He said, “The awards are set to motivate the players and incentivise their performance and it’s a great thing they have worked very hard.
“It also motivates other players to work harder so as to attain what their teammates have acquired through hard work.
Sithole is optimistic about next season and is sure Rhinos will rise above their finishing position:
“We always play to win, we finished at number seven but our desire as of next season is to gunner for top four.”
“I know the guys have much vigour and determination to keep the ball rolling, so I hope come next year our fans will have much to talk about.”
