Fans speak on Chunga


Caps United parted ways with coach Moses Chunga on Monday following the 1-0 defeat to Highlanders in a BancABC Sup8r quarter-final, in addition to unconvincing results from the Castle Lager Premiership race.

Caps were diplomatic in their announcement preferring to say the coach resigned, but the results have been speaking for themselves.

Here are some comments from the fans:

We need Chunga at Dynamos because Lloyd Mutasa wins by luck. He’s too small for Dynamos and we can’t compare him to Luke Masomere or Rahman Gumbo.

He’s a good coach yes, but his better off as an assistant or a junior coach. —Lawrence Nyambayo

If the powers-that-be at Caps are really serious about the success of the club, they better start investing in players rather than heaping the pressure on the coach to perform miracles from a crop of old, lacklustre players.

The management needs to keep players so as to maintain cohesion and consistency. Right now it seems the bosses are motivated by greed.

How can they disband half of the squad and yet they expect to challenge for honours by buying low-quality players as replacements?

They should have used the rich pickings to bolster the squad.

Look at the moneybags (FC Platinum) how they have managed to assert themselves in the league.
—Tawanda Mbewe

They (Caps United directors) are just after money.
They also expect miracles from the coach. —Tawanda Mbewe

Was it because they lost to Highlanders?
—Muzondiwa Ncube

Caps United were well known for their clean image and a civilised, disciplined fan base. Strangely, these past few years Caps have become infamous and notorious for their hordes of hooligans than quality football.

Moses Chunga was trying his best to rebrand this team but met with “political” resistance from these hooligans whose primitive mentality believed he was a DeMbare spy than a faithful Caps employee.

Now I can only foresee this team languishing in the relegation zone for the entire season. How sad! —Taffy Mutekwe

Sad most Caps fans never liked Bambo. It’s bad to always have to fight suspicion at work. Alois Bunjira contributed to Chunga’s demise.

You guy can catch up 15 more games. —Shepherd Fusire

The problem at Caps is money. Give players not those meagre salaries but more. $150 per win is paid at the end of the month . . . We are not yet that professional in Zimbabwe. Bambo remains a modest coach who is known to be good! It’s not about a good menu for today only, but continuity. —Zvinhu Zviedzwa

If one loses his job or, to be precise, resigns from his employ as Chunga did, you need a rest somehow. You can only get it when you go back home where you would sit down with your folks and narrate your ordeals. Come back home to DeMbare!!! You are welcome. —Mufudzi Chisango

Thank you! Bring Amayenge! —Disinherited Desdichado

No hard feelings for Chunga, but your methods at Caps were not all that good. You had certain players whom you favoured namely Walaza, Chivheya, Chafungamoyo, etc. Your tactics and team selection was poor.

For example, over the weekend you played mediocre football and didn’t use your numerical advantage over Highlanders. You stripped rightful captain Mukumbi, but your chosen captain Eddie Sibanda is very poor. Please go in peace. —Blessings Dube
