GWERU: Warriors gaffer Zdravko Logarusic has refused to bury his head in shame after leading the Warriors to a pathetic 3-1 loss at the hands of Algeria in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Thursday.
It has proven to be a mammoth task for the 56-year old who, instead of taking responsibility for the lose choose to shift blame to defenders.
Ahead of the return match at the National Sports Stadium on Monday, the Croatian is optimistic of a positive result, but challenged his defenders to stand up to the task and put the warriors’ campaign back on track.
In a telephone interview with CommuTalk, Logarusic however accepted the fact that the team did not have proper training ahead of the match.
“First, we did not have preparation for this game, proper training in the first place, but we should stop to give them goals. The problem with African football, is that we give too much goals,” he said.
It will be interesting to see how he will set up his charges this time around, as questions have already been asked about his selection.
The inclusion of Ovidy Karuru and England based Tendai Darikwa in the team has been welcomed with vitriol by many.
Putting David Moyo ahead of in-form Prince Dube has also been subject to massive criticism.
Algeria will invade Zimbabwe with tails up as they now sit on nine points atop of Group H, and will hope to complete a double and seal qualification to the continental tournament.
