Chitem­bwe nowhere to be seen

The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - SPORT - Veron­ica Gwaze

Caps………...................……0 Cha­pungu …....................….0 LLOYD CHITEM­BWE was con­spic­u­ous by his ab­sence as Caps United wound up their 2018 Cas­tle Lager Premier Soc­cer League sea­son with a draw against Cha­pungu at the Na­tional Sports Sta­dium.

Chitem­bwe’s ab­sence height­ened spec­u­la­tion that the cham­pi­onship win­ning coach could be on his way to Ngezi Plat­inum Stars.

Makepekepe tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor Nel­son Ma­ton­gorere fur­ther fanned the spec­u­la­tion by re­fus­ing to com­ment on Chitem­bwe’s where­abouts in a post-match in­ter­view.

“It’s not for me to com­ment on that (where Chitem­bwe is), l am here to stand in for him,” said Ma­ton­gorere, who de­scribed Caps United’s sea­son as very dis­ap­point­ing.

“With the po­si­tion we fin­ished on, we re­ally dis­ap­pointed our sup­port­ers be­cause they have a stan­dard they ex­pect from us.

“The low turnout to­day prob­a­bly con­firms how dis­ap­pointed they are. We hope to go back to the draw­ing board and work on hav­ing a bet­ter 2019.”

Mean­while, amid the spec­u­la­tion link­ing their coach to a move to Ngezi, the Caps United bosses last night in­sisted that Chitem­bwe is not go­ing any­where.

“Such spec­u­la­tion is ex­pected when you have a proven coach like Chitem­bwe and we are used to it,” reads a club state­ment.
