Chin­gara quits Swazi premier­ship club

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Noel Mun­z­abwa in Swazi­land

PRO­MO­TION win­ning Zim­babwe born Tam­buti FC coach, Tari­sai Chin­gara has abruptly quit the club just three days shy of the MTN Pre­mier League of Swazi­land week­end kick off.

The for­mer ZRP Tom­li­son player dropped the bomb­shell yes­ter­day morn­ing claim­ing he was not ready to work un­der newly ap­pointed head coach Alou Badara who the club un­veiled last Thurs­day.

“I have de­vel­oped this team, won pro­mo­tion to the Pre­mier League of Swazi­land in­clud­ing pre­par­ing the team for the forth­com­ing sea­son then some­one out of the blue is brought in as my head coach, it’s just un­fair.

“If that is the way the club has de­cided to thank me then the best op­tion for me is to quit and look else­where while my CV is still at­trac­tive than to work un­der some­one who is yet to win some­thing to his name.

“I have ten­dered my res­ig­na­tion though I was yet to sign any new con­tract with the club since they have been play­ing de­lay­ing tac­tics since July when they first stated I would sign the new con­tract in Au­gust,” said Chin­gara.

Quizzed on his next move, the coach who led the new­com­ers on a gi­ant killing mis­sion in this coun­try’s lu­cra­tive knock out tour­na­ment, Swaz­iBank Cup, down played re­cent me­dia re­ports link­ing him with a role at Manzini Wan­der­ers.

Tam­buti FC were due to open their maiden premier­ship life with an away date against Red Lions but there are grow­ing in­di­ca­tions that the Week Two fix­tures could kick start the league due to the un­avail­abil­ity of Somhlolo Na­tional Sta­dium to host the big Mba­bane derby which was the Week One pick of the nest.

This might see Tam­buti FC play host to Mi­das City.

Chin­gara’s res­ig­na­tion leaves the num­ber of Zim­babwe born coaches in this league at three with He­bert Maruwa at Green Mamba, Manzini Sun­downs’ God­frey Tamirepi and Manzini Wan­der­ers tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor Julius Chaku­pewa with War­riors’ as­sis­tant coach Saul Chaminuka tak­ing charge of Mat­sapha United in the Na­tional First Divi­sion — @NoelMun­z­abwa.
