Zoran Manojlovic Resigns As Simba SC Head Coach
Simba SC head coach Zoran Manojlović has resigned from his position after just two months in-charge of Msimbazi Reds.
The Tanzanian Premier League club released the statement Tuesday afternoon saying they have mutually parted ways with the coach three days after Msimbazi Reds’ 1-0 loss to Djiboutian giants Arta Solar 7 in a friendly.
“Simba Sports Club have reached an agreement to mutually part ways with our head coach Zoran Maki,” read the statement by the club signed by CEO Barbara Gonzalez.
“Furthermore, the club has reached a mutual agreement to part ways with our fitness coach Sbai Karim and goalkeeping coach Mohamed Rachid. Simba Sports Club wishes them all the best in their future endeavours. They will always remain part of the Simba family.
“The recruitment of the new head coach is underway and shall be announced once the new candidate has been identified.”
The 59-year-old Serbian coach is rumored to be heading to Egypt to take over the reins at Al Ittihad Alexandria.
Manojlovic’s previous job was with Saudi Arabian side Al Tai where his stay was cut short just four months following the club poor performance in the domestic league.
He is not new in Africa as he was in-charge of Tunisian giants CR Belouizdad before his move to Asia.
He also had stints with Sudanese Premier League giants Al Hilal Omdurman where he was fired due to poor results in the domestic league.
He was once in the books of Wydad Casablanca of Morocco and three Angolan clubs, notably Primieiro de Agosto from December 2017 to July 2019 and led them to the CAF Champions League semifinal in 2018.
