Mangwiro resigned soon after his team’s surprise 3-1 loss to Shabanie Mine at Maglas Stadium on Sunday. Information filtering through from Zvishavane says Mangwiro told his employers that he had failed in his goal and has decided to throw in the towel, but was also miffed by perceived lack of support from management to win games.
Although Caps United owner, Twine Phiri, could not be reached to shed light on this development, sources say assistant coach Saul Chaminuka has taken charge of the team with the help of former Warriors’ goalkeeper, Brenna Msiska.
The Caps United loss to Shabanie has seen the Green Machine go way behind leaders Dynamos who are now on 42 points from 23 games. Caps United are still pegged at 36 points and look way off the pace as the league race reaches climax.
Joint second place Highlanders and Harare City are both on 41 points after the same number of points, and Caps appear to have also failed to close the gap between them and the second placed teams.
Mangwiro’s departure comes ahead of Caps United Mbada Diamonds Cup quarter final match against Chicken Inn on Saturday. The game is set for Ascot Stadium in Gweru.
Caps United are in serious financial problems with players having gone for three months without either their salaries or winning bonuses.Post published in: Football
