Coaching career

Mutasa has coached several teams in the premier league. He got into the limelight when he was head coach of Kiglon Football Club. He assembled a very youthful team which was known for its passing game. Following his stint with Kiglon, Samaita was appointed head coach of Dynamos Football Club where he was an instant hit after having brought talented players to the club such as Gift Bello, Archford Gutu and Denver Mukamba. Although he did not last the whole season at Dembare, his contribution at the club remained evidently clear, the club went on to clinch the league title following his departure towards the end of the season. He has also coached other teams such as FC Platinum as well as being the assistant coach of the national team.

In May 2018 Dynamos fired Lloyd Mutasa together with Tendai Chaipa and Zondai Maungwa after having lost half the matches they had played in the opening 10 games of the 2018 season. Mutasa was replaced by Biggie Zuze who became Duynamos acting coach. [2] He is currently assistant coach at TelOne Football Club.
