Zimbabwe's caretaker coach Joey Antipas has stepped down from his role seemingly ruling himself out of taking over the job on a full-time basis.
He was appointed on an interim basis in August on a deal until the end of year but with no more international matches left to be played in 2019 Antipas has stepped aside already.
It comes a day after he led the Warriors to a 2-1 win in Zambia in 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying, a far cry from his first game in charge which was a shock 1-0 loss to Somalia in 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
He managed to overturn the loss to Somalia in the second leg with a 3-1 win to reach the group stage of 2022 World Cup qualifying.
His other game in charge of the full national team was a disappointing goalless draw against Botswana in a 2021 Nations Cup qualifier.
