Chunga quits


Moses Chunga is on his way out of Gunners.
The 2009 championship-winning coach severed ties with Gunners following sharp differences with the team management over issues to do with the running of the team.

An informed source told NewsDay Sport yesterday that Chunga had clashed with the team management over the way the team was being run.

The source said at one stage Chunga claimed he had assumed the post of director at the club a declaration which is believed to have torched a storm within the leadership hierarchy.

Director of operations at the club, Wellington Mupandare, could not confirm the latest development only asking this reporter to phone Chunga.

And Chunga seemed to confirm his imminent departure when contacted for comment.
If you have the story I think you should go ahead and write it.

Although both parties would not say much on the issue, the source maintained they had parted ways.
Chunga did not attend the trials that started yesterday.

Chando Kupisa, as they are affectionately known by their supporters, are one of the clubs who were hard hit by a player exodus, mainly because of the financial rewards offered by other clubs and African club football.

Gunners lost virtually the core of the team in first choice goalkeeper George Chigova who joined city rivals Dynamos while the trio of Young Warriors captain Qadr Amini, Michelle Katsvairo and Ali Sadiki joined FC Platinum.

They however managed to hold on to one of their most prized asset in Cliff Sekete.

The Warriors trialist, who had a dream season last year and was deservedly voted among the countrys 11 best players was tracked down by Dynamos, FC Platinum and Motor Action who all wanted to register him for African club competitions.

It was the teams first league title in two years after their promotion into the elite league. The outspoken coach then threw in the towel under unclear circumstances to join Caps United before the beginning of the season.

He was forced out of the Harare giants after his relationship with a section of the teams supporters turned frosty. A hostile section of the team supporters argued he could not guide Caps United to glory given his strong links with rivals Dynamos although he had a flying start to the season.

He then resurfaced at his former paymasters Gunners in the middle of the season last year where he became the darling of soccer fans when his late heroics saved Gunners from relegation to finish a credible fifth position on the league table having assumed duty when they were struggling at the foot of the table.
