There is no reason to quit — Jongwe


Under-fire Caps United coach Maxwell Takaendesa Jongwe has said there is no reason for him to quit despite a five match winless streak.

Jongwe took over from Moses Chunga, who returned to Gunners and has managed just one draw and four losses, the latest a 1-0 defeat by Masvingo at Mucheke Stadium.

His next assignment is against Kiglon at the National Sports Stadium on Saturday.

“I am not one person who can just throw in the towel when things are going wrong. I will fight until things are right at the club because players and management are all behind me.

“We are just going through a bad patch and things have to come right this weekend . . . they just have to.

“I have no pressure from within, everybody wants to win and we are fighting hard to make sure we win. I take responsibility as the head coach and I will not point fingers at anyone,” Jongwe said yesterday.

Last week, it was reported that Chunga was on his way back to the Green Machine while the club was also making efforts to lure former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Ian Gorowa from South Africa.

Caps have struggled to recover from the massive sale of players to Sundowns last season — Method Mwanjali, Nyasha Mushekwi, Lionel Mtizwa and the pair of Tafadzwa Rusike, and Khama Billiat was sold to Ajax Cape Town.

Chunga had brought in Simba Sithole from Shooting Stars, but the lure of the rand was hard to resist for team principals Twine Phiri and Farai Jere, who shipped him off ton Sundowns last month.
With no replacements brought in, any coach was bound to struggle to make a winning team and even the presence of such players like Edmore Sibanda, Joel Luphahla, Stephen Alimenda, Evans Gwekwerere, Tapiwa Khumbuyani and Charles Chiutsa has failed to revitalise the club.
