Recently appointed Chiredzi Stars football club (FC) head coach, Tinashe Zishiri, has promised to lead the club to glory days, as he takes over the hot seat at the Lowveld based side.

The 41 year old gaffer whose playing and coaching career is rooted in the Lowveld seeks to capitalize on his experience and compete for top honors in the region.

In an interview with Centre Sports, Zishiri, said he wants to guide the side to greater heights and be a force to reckon with.

“I look forward to forming a formidable side that is able to compete with the best teams in the league as well as finishing as high up on the table as possible,” said Zishiri.

Currently Chiredzi Stars seat comfortably on the fifth position with17 points from 10 outings and have a game in hand.

Last weekend the team played a goalless draw away to Ruwa ProGroup FC and will tussle it out for 3 points with debutants FC Wangu Mazodze, at their favourite hunting ground, Chishamiso Stadium in their next fixture.

Zishiri has previously been in the technical setup of Chiredzi FC, during their days in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) in 2014 where he was assistant to Moses ‘Bambo’ Chunga and the late Gishon Ntini.

During his playing days, Zishiri also made it into the national team Under 17 team in 1998 under the tutelage of the late veteran coach Stephen Kwashi.

The Eastern Region D1 side formally parted ways with head coach Pardon Chinungwa and his lieutenant Blessing Mazorodze last week.
