Race for coaches heralds transfer

THE hunt for quality coaches among the Premier League sides continues to gather pace as the clock ticks before the commencement of the tense 2023/24 season.

Hiring competitive trainers is among the recipes that highly contribute teams to winning matches based on the fact that accommodating good players alone is not enough to bring success.

In this regard, some clubs are spending sleepless nights searching for skillful coaches they think will bring fortune to their teams and conquer the upcoming campaign.

So far, Young Africans and Azam are the two sides to have injected head coaches from outside the country who are yet to feel the Tanzania league flavor, hence people will be interested to see what they have to offer.

The defending champions (Yanga) have their hopes in the hands of Argentine Miguel Gamondi whereas Azam bank on Senegalese tactician,

Youssouph Dabo.


Also, KMC have recruited the former Azam Coach Abdi Hamid Moallin, who has a good knowledge of the country’s league and it is a second chance for him to let his star shine.

Domestically, several coach transfers have been completed as former Geita Gold mentor Felix Minziro begins a new life at the Mbeya-based giants Tanzania Prisons where he has sealed a one-year deal.

Last season, Minziro drove Geita to the seventh place on the table after 30 matches of which they won 9 games, stamped 10 draws, and succumbed to 11 losses.

“We are proud to have him (Minziro) here, he is among the best coaches in the country and his experience will help us to do better next season as we aim to finish the league in the top five,” said Tanzania Prosons Information Officer Jackson Mwafulango.

In the same fashion, the newly promoted side Mashujaa is not behind when it comes to investing in their technical panel as they have unveiled the ex-Tanzania Prisons trainer, Abdallah Barres.

In his nine matches, he guided Tanzania Prisons after taking over from Patrick Odhiambo, Barres managed five wins, one draw, and three defeats helping the Green City side to escape relegation.

On the other hand, Coastal Union recently introduced DR Congo trainer Mwinyi Zahera as their coach for the next season believing that he has what it takes to navigate the team to success.

His tenure at Polisi Tanzania last season ended in jeopardy as the Moshi- based outfits got relegated to the Championship league hence it is another chance for him to re-write his story.
