Ndiraya joins moneybags Simba Bhora as new coach

Former Dynamos coach Tonderai Ndiraya has joined newly promoted Premier Soccer League side Simba Bhora on a three year contract.

SHAMVA – Former Dynamos coach Tonderai Ndiraya has joined newly promoted Premier Soccer League side Simba Bhora on a three year contract.

Ndiraya whose contract with Dynamos lapsed on Saturday night after the club decided against extending it at the conclusion of last season, takes over from Arthur Tutani who is ineligible to coach in the Premier Soccer League as he doesn’t possess the requisite CAF A coaching licence.

Simba Bhora secretary general Taurai Janhi said they settled for Ndiraya because of his capabilities and experience.

“As Simba Bhora we are excited to announce the appointment of Tonderai Ndiraya as our head coach going into the forthcoming season. We believe that he is the right coach to lead us into the Premier Soccer League,” Janhi said.

“Coach Ndiraya is one of the best coaches in the country and we believe he is a coach who can handle pressure in the Premier Soccer League given that he has coached at Dynamos and at Ngezi Platinum Stars. We also felt that he is a coach whose ambition also dovetails with our ambitions as well.”

Janhi also highlighted that Simba Bhora are in the process of upgrading their home ground Wadzanai stadium so that they host their matches in Shamva.

“We are already in the process of upgrading Wadzanai stadium so that we play all our home matches in Shamva.

“Our team is also a vehicle for the marketing and development of Shamva and the whole of Mashonaland Central Province. We have future plans to make Shamva and Mashonaland Central Province the epicentre of football development in Zimbabwe.”

Simba Bhora who got promoted into the PSL after winning the Northern Region Soccer League Championship last year already boasts of a number of experienced players that includes Ali Sadiki, Tinashe Balakasi, Ronald ‘Rooney’ Chitiyo, Simba Chinani, Hardlife Zvirekwi, Brighton Tuwaya among others.
