Former Forest Rangers coach Perry Mutapa has been appointed Power Dynamos coach after the club parted company with Zimbabwean pastor Gaston Mutobo who took it closer to the relegation Zone.
Mutapa’s former assistant at Forest Rangers Masautso Tembo has also joined his former boss and the duo have signed two-year contracts.
The former Chipolopolo international and Orlando Pirates midﬁelder and his assistant at Forest Rangers shockingly tendered in their resignation letters at Forest Rangers on Monday, which were accepted by management, putting an end their two-year reign at the helm of Fole Malembe.
Next-Gen Sports Agency, the representatives of the duo, have conﬁrmed the development via a statement posted on Facebook.
“We are proud to announce that after successful talks with the board at Power Dynamos Football Club, we have reached an agreement for our clients Mr. Perry Mutapa and Mr. Masautso Tembo to join the Club on a two-year Contract effective 26th November 2019. The former will head the coaching bench, whilst the latter will be one of the assistants,” the Agency stated.
They further thanked Forest Rangers for the time the duo spent at the club.
“We wish to thank Forest Rangers Football Club for the time our clients spent. We are indebted to them for the opportunity and the platform to build on. We wish the Players (whom our clients share a strong bond with) and the fans the very best…,” stated the Agency.
Mutapa served at Forest Rangers for two seasons and had been a constant hurdle for Power Dynamos during that period as well.
Power Dynamos is currently 13th on the log following a poor run that saw the departure of head coach Gaston Mutobo.
The club has been one of Zambia’s most decorated and challenged for silverware in previous years.
