MUTARE-Self-proclaimed football doctor Luke ‘Vahombe’ Masomere has said that he is proud to be working in Mutare again, a city he regards as his second hometown.

Masomere told The Mirror in a wide ranging interview that he enjoys the city and that influenced his decision to join Mutare City Rovers as head coach recently.

The football doctor previously coached the Mutare-based side, Manica Diamonds, from its formation in 2017, and helped the club gain promotion into the Premier Soccer League in 2018, with seven games to spare. He left the club and Mutare in 2019.

He said that he hopes to accomplish the same feet with Mutare City Rovers. The club is owned by Mutare City Council.

“Football has brought me back to Mutare. I have fallen in love with the city and its people. Every time I come to Mutare I feel like I’m coming home. It’s more like my second home and I am happy to be back here.

“My target is to get back to PSL with Mutare City Rovers and that is also the club’s target. We are conducting trials for all departments because we really want to have a competitive team that can challenge for honours. The club executive, council and myself are going to strike a good working combination,” he said.

After a stint away from football Masomere was unveiled as the new coach at Mutare City Rovers, taking over the reigns from Kennedy ‘Bokande’ Kachara who guided the municipal side into PSL twice.

Masomere has coached several local teams including Howmine FC, Shabanie Mine FC, Dynamos FC and Manica Diamonds.

He will be deputized by Chasten Ngondonga and Shepherd Muradzikwa who is the club’s fitness trainer.
