Coaching Career

Shabanie Mine Football Club

Chiragwi resigned as Shabanie Mine's head coach in June 2018, reportedly in protest over a lack of support from the club hierarchy.[1]

Shabanie Mine had lost 4-0 to FC Platinum the previous week and the club responded by hiring Rowan Nenzou, Gerald Phiri, Elvis Muuya, and Alexio Sijioni to strengthen the technical department.

This resulted in Chiragwi tendering his resignation from the club.

Matsapa United Football Club (Eswatini)

In 2019, Chiragwi became the first Zimbabwean coach to win his first game in charge of a club in Eswatini when his side Matsapha United beat Malanti Chiefs 4-3 on penalties after the match had ended 1-1 in the playoffs of the 2019/ 20 Eswatini Posts and Telecommunications Corporation Charity Shield.[2]

Ngezi Platinum Stars Football Club

Chiragwi was appointed Ngezi Platinum Stars first assistant coach on 29 March 2022.

He was made the first assistant to head coach Benjani Mwaruwari, while Bongani Mafu was appointed the second assistant coach.

When Benjani and the other technical staff members were fired on 25 July 2022, Ngezi Platinum Stars retained Chiragwi and appointed him the caretaker coach with Kifton Kadurira as his assistant.

Chiragwi was appointed as Ngezi Platinum Stars substantive coach on 28 November 2022 on a three-year deal.[3] A statement issued by the club read:

Ngezi Platinum Stars Football Club is pleased to inform all its stakeholders that the Club has appointed Mr. Takesure Chiragwi as the substantive Head Coach. Chiragwi, who was initially the Assistant Coach took over as interim Head Coach following the departure of Mr. Benjani Mwaruwari in July 2022.

Coach Chiragwi has been appointed following his excellent performance after being appointed interim coach wherein the team finished strongly, achieving its Top 4 Finish objective for Season 2022.

In addition, the appointment of Chiragwi signifies the Club’s commitment to developing technical skills internally and coach Chiragwi has steadily improved since joining the Club in 2019.

The new head coach is in the process of assembling his technical team which will be announced in due course.


In 2023, Chiragwi guided Ngezi Platinum Stars to their maiden Castle Lager Premier Soccer League title, with two games to spare.
