Ngezi Platinum Stars’ new coach Benjani Mwaruwari said that his arrival at the club will make it easier for players to get trials in Europe and for the club to secure friendly matches abroad.
Mwaruwari (43), played in South Africa, Switzerland, France and England over a career spanning 15 years.
The former Manchester City striker said he has already secured a pre-season friendly match with his former French side AJ Auxerre. He said:
If I see a good player here it would be easy for that player to go and get trials abroad. That is one of the advantages of my being here.
It will be easy for me to facilitate friendly matches for Ngezi to go and play in Europe with teams that I played for.
For example, in Auxerre, I was recently there and I spoke to them that we would like to come and play a pre-season friendly match and they accepted.
So already we have a chance to go and play friendly matches against Auxerre.
Mwaruwari, a holder of a UEFA A Licence, was unveiled as the new coach by Madamburo on Tuesday morning.
