Moyo in Mighty Warriors structures

The 28-year-old midfielder-cum-striker last played for the Mighty Warriors when Zimbabwe hosted the senior Women Cosafa tournament in August. The Mighty Warriors won the cup after beating South Africa 1-0 in the final.

After discovering that her legs were no longer able to carry her far, Moyo, who has vast experience in coaching, was drafted into the Mighty Warriors technical set up where she is serving as the kit manager. Speaking to Standardsport on Thursday after the Mighty Warriors’ drubbing of South Africa’s Banyana Banyana in the Unity Day Challenge Cup, Moyo said she was enjoying her new job as the Mighty Warriors kit manager.

“As you know, I am still to learn more on coaching. I am very happy to be in such a position with elders like Rose Mugadza and the entire technical team as I am bound to learn more from them. At my club, New Orleans, I am the player coach so there is much to learn here,” Moyo said.

“I learn a lot here which I also go and put into practice at my club. It has since helped me because New Orleans played better this season finishing fourth on the log table.”

The midfielder-cum-striker who has 96 national team caps said she has lost count of the number of goals she scored for the Mighty Warriors. Moyo said that when she commanded a first team place during the 2000 Nations Cup qualifiers, she had already   scored 20 goals for the Mighty Warriors.

Moyo was elected in the Africa’s Best 11 in 2004 before being nominated for the Dairiboard Sports Person of the Year award the same year.

The Mighty Warrior’s technical team includes Rosemary Mugadza as head coach, Johannes Chikaula her assistant, Nkululeko Dhlamini (goalkeeper’s coach), Charity Munemo (team manager), Margaret Maulani (team doctor) and Gillian Mudzengi as the team’s physiotherapist.
