Pagels To Return To Warriors?



FORMER Warriors coach, Klaus Dieter Pagels, says he is still interested in another dance with the senior national football team provided ZIFA can secure a sponsor to cater for his welfare.

The German coach is willing to come back to Africa and revive his romance with the Warriors six years after leaving them.

Pagels arrived in Zimbabwe as ZIFA technical advisor in 2011 following his secondment to the association by the Germany Olympic Committee.

He was then appointed interim coach the following year after Rahman Gumbo resigned following the failed 2013 AFCON qualifying campaign.
Pagels took over the 2014 World Cup qualification process and presided over matches against Guinea and Egypt.

His team had fresh-faced players, and was captained by Denver Mukamba, who then was only 20, while the chief striker was Knowledge Musona.

Musona is now the skipper of the team.
The Warriors coaching post is set to become vacant on December 31 this year when Antipas’ short-term contract expires.

ZIFA haven’t indicated whether they are going to renew the interim coach’s contract or will look for another coach.State media
