Moyo rejoins TAFIC

Nomadic Blessing Moyo has rejoined the perennial strugglers of local football in TAFIC Sporting Club, about five years after losing his job at the ever troubled side with the hope of turning the tide this time around.

The Zimbabwean-born mentor was fired by TAFIC sometime in 2012 after a string of poor results. His father, Paul Moyo took over to save the club from relegation to the unfashionable Debswana First Division North League.

But Paul Moyo’s stay at the club was short lived and TAFIC went on to lose its premiership status the following season. Since the 2012/13 league season, the Francistown based outfit has been languishing in the wilderness.

The former Notwane FC playmaker had stints at Letlapeng FC, Motlakase Power Dynamos, ECCO City Greens, Tonota FC and Mega.com as well as Calendar Stars FC. Now with a renewed vigor, Moyo has rejoined TAFIC. 

Expectation is that the former Notwane stalwart will wave his magic wand this time around and turn the fortunes of the once feared Red Devils of the North, as TAFIC was affectionately known to hordes of its supporters.  

WeekendSport has been reliably informed that the legendary playmaker has agreed to sign a two-year deal with the ever troubled 2002 Coca Cola Cup champions. And he is expected to take the club back to the biggest league on the land.

“TAFIC has reappointed its former mentor in Blessing Moyo. The two parties have agreed on a two-year deal,” confirmed the TAFIC spokesperson Warrant Kolola when approached for a comment on Tuesday afternoon.

Kolola said TAFIC and Moyo have agreed on a results orientated contract. According to Kolola, it has been made quite clear that the reappointed head coach has to do everything within his power to ensure that the club regains its premiership status.

Moyo could not deny or confirm the development. However, Moyo has been busy taking the boys through their paces at the club’s dusty Leseding Grounds every evening for almost a fortnight now.

From the look of things, Moyo wants to do much of his talking on the field of play. A visit to the to the TAFIC training ground by WeekendSport crew has established that there is a lot of commitment from both players and the coaching staff this time around.

Meanwhile, the 2016/17 Debswana First Division North League season is expected to kick off early next month.
