I'm happy to be back - Ndiraya

HARARE - Tonderai Ndiraya says he feels happy to be back at Dynamos after he was unveiled as new coach David Mandigora’s assistant coach last week.

The 37-year old was unveiled as the new DeMbare assistant coach almost two years after stepping down from the same post following a fall-out with former coach Calisto Pasuwa.

This time around he will be working with Mandigora, who took over from Pasuwa last week.

Richard Chihoro also bounced back in the club’s new technical setup as the team manager while the second assistant coach and the goalkeepers’ coach will be announced in due course.

Ndiraya, had left the Harare giants unceremoniously half way through the 2013 season, citing irreconcilable differences with Pasuwa.

“It’s a good feeling. You are always happy when you have a chance to come back,” Ndiraya told the Daily News on Sunday.

“I am just happy to be back. It’s not so long since I was here. It's exciting. It’s a great group of guys to work with and I am just looking forward to getting it going. It’s going to be quite a big challenge but I am ready.”

Ndiraya, who also represented the Glamour Boys as a player, helped the club to win two titles in 2011 and 2012 during his first spell at the club.

He also won the Mbada Diamonds Cup twice during that same period.

Ndiraya promised to do everything to ensure the Glamour Boys maintain their dominance on the local scene.

“I think I’m also part of the success of the team. I won two championships with Pasuwa and I hope to maintain the same feat together with the new coach. I will try my best to give him all the supports I can and perhaps achieve new things together with him,” he said.

“I have attained a diploma in Sports Coaching Management and I hope the academic experience will help the club improve. I also hope the knowledge I acquired will be of greater importance to the team going forward.”

Tonderai Ndiraya was a player I admired during his playing days. I expected him to be the same on his coaching time. like what Pasuwa has shown to us during playing years and coaching years. I admire him, thank you Pasuwa for being a good example to many.
