Taurai Mangwiro, the want-away Caps United gaffer, had the media waiting for two hours at the teams’ training ground, Arcadia sports club before making a dramatic appearance announcing his comeback barely two days after quitting.

Mangwiro, a former Dynamos player, had watched his team’s 3-1 defeat to Shabanie at Mandava on Sunday with both disdain and resignation and immediately publicised that he felt he was being treated unfairly by the team’s management and was therefore abandoning the ship.
He told NewsDay: ““I think I have done the best for the club and it is time for me to move on. Let them bring in someone they feel is the right person for the job. I did my bit and for me it ends here. “It is unfortunate that I have to make this announcement through the media before communicating with the relevant authorities, but since there was nothing binding between me and them I think it is appropriate that I say goodbye in this manner.
“There are a lot of squabbles at the club which I feel affected my work and I was the biggest loser at the end of the day. I don’t see the team winning if I stay and it is in the best interest of team that I leave,” he said.
Mangwiro, who wore a blue jean and a casual floral shirt and is said to have retreated to Masvingo to find solace in his family after quitting, addressed players after the training session that was conducted by his assistant Saul Chaminuka allaying fears that he was standing by his earlier position.
“In any house you have squabbles,” He said to attentive players. “We must find a common ground.”
