Bun­jira quits

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo

CAPS United leg­end Alois Bun­jira has quit as board mem­ber of the club in a shock­ing move that comes at a time when the Green Ma­chine is fac­ing se­ri­ous fi­nan­cial prob­lems that has seen play­ers re­volt­ing twice this sea­son.

The 1996 Soc­cer Star of the Year fi­nal­ist said he is leav­ing Caps United to pur­sue what he calls ‘my pas­sion of coach­ing’ as well as con­cen­trate on his academy, Al­bun Soc­cer Academy.

“Let me take this op­por­tu­nity to let you know that I have re­signed from CAPS United. I have re­signed so that I can pur­sue my pas­sion of coach­ing and also run my soc­cer academy,” said Bun­jira.

He said he had a good re­la­tion­ship with the rest of the Caps United board and re­mained con­vinced that the club was well on course to lift the league ti­tle this year.

“I have had a great time at Caps United but I felt I am more at home on the play­ing field than in the of­fice at the mo­ment. Maybe I will con­sider ad­min­is­tra­tion again in the near fu­ture but for now I want to con­cen­trate on my coach­ing and hope to groom a lot of good play­ers from my academy. I re­main a pas­sion­ate mem­ber of the Caps United fam­ily. The team is in a great po­si­tion to win the league this sea­son and I wish my great friend Lloyd Chitem­bwe all the best. I will still be avail­able when­ever I am needed to help here and there,” he said. He added; “I had a great work­ing re­la­tion­ship with the share­hold­ers and the board. The great re­la­tion­ship re­mains and I know to­gether they will steer the club to greater heights. It is just a mat­ter of time. I truly en­joyed my time in the Caps United board”.

Makepekepe are in Bu­l­awayo to­mor­row for a league match against Bu­l­awayo City at Bar­bour­fields Sta­dium.
