THE CLOWN WEARS THE CROWN
Logarusic leads the Warriors to Afcon
The Clown takes the Crown
It took a whole clown and a loot of seven thousand dollars per month to finally break the jinx that had seen no foreign coach succeeding in taking the Warriors to Afcon.
Ben koufie from Ghana even went to the lengths of saying "Not even a coach from the moon will make you qualify" this uttered in the very throes of failure.
Twice the legendary Sunday Mhofu Chidzambwa went to the promised land.Charles Mhlauri with his dreadlocks and Sir Callisto Pasuwa breached the moon barrier once apiece.Pasuwa even did it with a certain Elisha Muroiwa in his squad,but foreign coaches flattered to deceive.Even that guy that from Germany who hated Moses Chunga only managed to piece together a dream,a dream that never saw day light.
Enter Zdravko Logarusic,complete with a bald head and juju beliefs.The Croatian found the Warriors on a firm footing after Antipas and the three musketeers Khama Billiat,Knowledge Musona and Ovidy Karuru defeated Zambia in their own backyard.Loga then drew with Malawi in a goalless affair,got clobbered in Algeria and had fortuitous goal to thank as he salvaged a draw at home against the same opponents.Many disliked his decision of benching Billiat,Mahachi and Mudimu in that particular match.
The hullabaloo increased after the Chan embarrassment.The local based Warriors going to Cameroon and coming back with no points,stories of bats and witchcraft.There was an outcry,we pampering a fool with seven thousand kisses yet he has not won a single match.
Then without Marvellous Nakamba,Tino Kadewere,Khama Billiat and Marshall Munetsi he headed to Botswana.With Talbert Shumba,Gilroy Chimwemwe and Perfect Chikwende,he broke the jinx,albeit with a bit of good fortune.
He might be a clown but for now he wears the crown.
Fortune favours the brave
