Lucrative Golden Handshake For Benjani Mwaruwari | Report

Former Ngezi Platinum Stars coach Benjani Mwaruwari may get a US$440 000 severance package from his former paymasters following his sacking on Monday.

When Benjani was appointed Ngezi coach in March this year, reports indicated that he penned a four-year deal and was guaranteed a salary of about US$10 000 a month.

If it was true that “The Undertaker” indeed signed a four-year deal, and he was getting US$10 000 a month, it means he will be paid US$440 000.

In football, when a coach is fired, the club has to fully pay off the remainder of his or her contract, unless the coach failed to fulfil what was agreed to in the deal.

H-Metro reported sources as saying Benjani signed a “standard” deal, “which is like what is seen in the professional leagues of Europe.” Added the source:

This means he is entitled to payment for the remainder of his contract.

If he had signed a three-year deal, it means he will have to be paid a US$320 000 severance package.

In the event he entered into a two-year contract, it means he will be paid about US$200 000 in the golden handshake.

Ngezi Platinum Stars announced on Monday that they had parted ways with Benjani after results were not what they expected.

Benjani presided over 13 games, in which he registered three wins, six draws and four losses.

He was fired alongside his first assistant coach Bongani Mafu.
