Logarusic eyes vacant role at giants Azam FC

The former Gor Mahia man is among three coaches, who have applied to replace Briton Stewart Hall, who has parted ways with the ice cream makers

Former Gor Mahia tactician Zdravko Logarusic is among three coaches who have applied to take charge at Tanzanian side Azam FC.

According to Azam FC Information Officer Jaffary Idd, Logarusic, Dorian Marin from Romania, and Fabio Lopez from Italy are being examined to see who among them could replace coach Stewart Hall, who is out of contract after the end of the first round of the Vodacom Premier League.

Idd confirmed that the three coaches had already sent their profiles and club officials will discuss them and select one of them for the post. “The trio have already sent in their CV’s and we will be making an announcement soon.

“The usual routing is that coaches are welcomed to apply for the post and whichever one will attract Azam FC leadership will be invited for discussion.”

On Thursday after the first round last match between Azam and Mbeya City at Azam Complex, Chamazi, Stewart Hall bid farewell to the Azam technical bench and players.

“It’s true that (Thursday) was my last day at Azam FC. I asked the club that I leave here after obtaining another position elsewhere and they agreed with me,” he said, noting that this is not a short term absence, and wishing the side success in all tournaments.

Logarusic has been jobless since leaving newly crowned champions Gor Mahia, a side he helped clinch a double and finish second in 2013 season.
