Taurayi Mangwiro will remain as head coach, while Brenna Msiska will keep his position as the goalkeepers’ trainer.

Albert Mabika has been dropped to position of academy boss, while the other assistant, Raymond Mungembe, will act as technical analyst to the senior team and chief scout, but will not sit on the bench, according to changes announced by club chief executive Joe Makuvire yesterday.

Makuvire said: “We have just concluded contract negotiations with Chaminuka on the recommendations of the head coach (Mangwiro). He will start work with the team tomorrow (today) at Arcadia Sports Club.

“This is meant to enhance the technical aspect of the team and positively complement the head coach. Their target remains a top-four finish and anything above that will be a great achievement.”

Caps United play a friendly match against Black Rhinos at Rimuka Stadium in Kadoma this weekend as they seek to keep momentum during the two-week
international break.

The Twine Phiri-owned team has risen to sixth place in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League standings after winning six games, drawing two and losing six of the 13 matches played so far.

They have 20 points, nine off leaders Highlanders.

Chaminuka will be in the green and white of the Green Machine when league action resumes on Wednesday June 19 against Hwange at home, after which they will conclude the first half of the season against Highlanders at the National Sports Stadium in
Week 15.

  2. watch out mangwiro this tme loose u a gone

  3. Chaminuka on stand-by to take over the hot seat. Caps United should give their coaches enough time to build and mould a competative team. This hirering and firering of coaches will not take the club anywhere.
