Chaminuka joined Caps United from Buffaloes on Wednesday after throwing in the towel following reports of differences with his employers. He started work yesterday and said he was happy to be part of the technical team headed by Taurai Mangwiro.
He said he would help to add value to the team as the Green Machine targets a top-four finish after a disappointing season last year when they finished in 10th place on the log standings.
“I am happy to be joining Caps United. I was impressed by the spirit in the team after my first training session with them. I think together we can make Caps United a force to reckon with. I am confident we can achieve the target of a top-four finish or even win the championship,” Chaminuka said.
The former Eagles and Buffaloes coach will assist Mangwiro with Albert Mabika being reassigned to work with the junior teams in a reshuffle of the technical department.
Brenna Msiska retained his position as the goalkeepers’ coach. Roy Mudembe, who was one of the assistant coaches, was redeployed as the chief scout for the team.
Caps United are on sixth position on the log table with 20 points. They have won six matches, drawn two and lost five with the campaign staggering towards the halfway mark.
The Harare giants will not be taking a break as they seek to remain in shape ahead of the resumption of the league programme in a fortnight.
The Premiership takes a two-week break this week to allow the Warriors to take part in their 2014 world cup assignments.
The Warriors take on Egypt at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday before travelling to Guinea for another world cup fixture against the hosts the following weekend.
