Cha­pungu calm de­spite rel­e­ga­tion threats

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Love­more Zi­gara in Gweru

CHA­PUNGU are putting on a brave face de­spite threats of rel­e­ga­tion fol­low­ing Zifa’s de­ci­sion to re­scind a res­o­lu­tion to rel­e­gate only two teams this sea­son.

The Zifa As­sem­bly voted to re­vert to the old sys­tem of rel­e­gat­ing four teams and pro­mot­ing an equal num­ber, with one from each of the na­tional as­so­ci­a­tion’s four re­gions.

Cha­pungu lost 0–2 to ti­tle chas­ing FC Plat­inum and presently oc­cupy the fourth rel­e­ga­tion slot with 31 points and must win their re­main­ing two games against Hwange and Caps United and hope that Hwange, Tri­an­gle and How Mine some­how fal­ter for them to re­main in the topflight should the Zifa vote stand.

Cha­pungu chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Chris-Levine Mukotekwa said his side was fo­cused on ful­fill­ing its re­main­ing fix­tures and was yet to be briefed by the PSL on any new de­vel­op­ments re­gard­ing rel­e­ga­tion and pro­mo­tion.

“At the mo­ment we are not aware of any­thing go­ing on and our fo­cus is on ful­fill­ing the re­main­ing fix­tures. What you are al­lud­ing to are press re­ports, but ac­cord­ing to the PSL res­o­lu­tion at the be­gin­ning of the sea­son, clubs agreed that only two teams will be rel­e­gated and that is what we are work­ing with,” said Mukotekwa.

He de­clined to com­ment on the tiff be­tween Zifa and the PSL, re­fer­ring queries to PSL chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Kennedy Nde­bele — @lavuzi­gara1.
