TNM Super League giants Silver Strikers have beefed up their coaching panel after roping in former defender Patrick Mangani as one of the assistant coaches.
Mangani, who was until his appointment coaching Silver Reserve, has replaced Peter Mgangira who was fired recently.
Mangani will be part of the backroom staff comprising Technical Director and Head Coach Young Chimodzi Senior and another assistant coach Abasi Makawa.
Mangani on Monday confirmed his appointment saying he was unveiled on Friday as the team was preparing for a match against Dwangwa United which they lost 1-0 at Chitowe Stadium on Sunday.
“I feel greatly honoured to be considered for the big job after I worked as coach for the reserve side. I do not want to promise the moon and the sun but together with the rest of the technical panel, we will work to make the team perform better this season,” Mangani said.
The Central Bankers are on fifth place on the TNM Super League log table with 29 points from 17 games, 10 points behind leaders Be Forward.
