Already practising the same role at Pretoria University in the local First Division, he was among the 28 participants that recently received the FIFA goalkeeper coaching certificates following a course at the High Performance Centre, at the University of the North West.

“I celebrate a new chapter in my life and I am looking forward to the challenges it presents,” he told The Zimbabwean.

Tanyanyiwa signed for the South African first division side in 2007 but injury saw him take early retirement. The 29-year-old subsequently joined the technical team.

The course he attended was the first of its kind in South Africa. It was an elite goalkeeper-coaching course offered to goalkeeper coaches from the Premiers Soccer League, National First Division and armature leagues. – Chris Ncube

It was the initiative of the South African Football Association (SAFA) and the world football governing body, FIFA.
