Chunga to end CAPS heartache

HARARE - Former Zimbabwe international Moses Chunga is expected to take over as CAPS United coach this week as the out-of-sorts Premier Soccer League defending champions seek to put a chokehold on their poor streak of results.
CAPS, hard to beat in the last two seasons they have won the champions

hip, slid to 10th on the 16-team log after falling 2-0 to Masvingo United at Mucheke on Sunday.
With seven wins from their 18 matches so far, retaining the title is now out of question for Makepekepe – who are this week expected to part with their Zambian coach Fordson Kabole to pave the way for Chunga.
Chunga himself was recently fired by premiership debutants Shooting Stars following a string of poor results.
Although he has not won the league with any team as a coach, Chunga has been credited with saving Dynamos, Black Rhinos and the now-defunct Arcadia from relegation.
Chunga had been linked with a move back to Dynamos, who until Sunday had gone for five matches without a win.
Dynamos’ 2-0 win over Hwange at Rufaro was a huge relief for coach David Mandigora, who has been blamed for the team’s poor results.
The Harare giants, who last won the top-flight league in 1997, have been on a buying spree during the second transfer period as they brought in David Kutyauripo, Edward Sadomba, Ramson Zhuwawo and Heavens Chinyama among others who they hope will bring back the glamour days at DeMbare.
A win for Hwange could have seen them cut top-placed Highlanders’ lead to 10 points and ensured second position for the coal-mine side.
The weekend action also brought relief to Black Rhinos’ under-fire coach Nesbert Saruchera after his charges held new-boys Monomotapa to a two-all draw.
While Kabole could be heading back home, his fellow Zambian Keagan Mumba is enjoying life at Motor Action, who are now tied on 31 points with Chapungu and Hwange after a flip-flop start to the season.
Motor Action, who edged Shooting Stars 1-0 at the weekend, are however placed third because of an inferior goal difference to second-placed Chapungu – who edged fellow Midlands side Shabanie Mine 1-0.
Highlanders were on Saturday relieved to settle for a goalless draw at Buymore, who gave the Bulawayo giants their first league defeat of the season.
While Highlanders’ march to the title continues, Zimbabwe Saints look certain to return to lower-division football again after they fell 3-1 to Railstars. – ZimOnline
