Chunga proves magic touch at CAPS

Chunga on a winning streak in the Zim PSL with his new club CAPS

Normadic coach Moses 'Bambo' Chunga has proved that he indeed has a magic touch by turning around the fortunes of Harare giants CAPS United in just a fortnight, and leading his new team to two straight wins against Shooting stars and FC Victoria in matches played during the past week.

The former Warriors captain, Chunga, was appointed CAPS head coach in place of the dismissed Lloyd Chitembwe only last Tuesday.

On Thursday, just two days after his return to a team he left in a huff in 2008, Bambo led CAPS to a morale-boosting 1-0 victory in a Premier Soccer League match at Rufaro stadium.

At the end of the Thursday match Chunga was mobbed by happy CAPS fans, the same fans who had hounded him out of the Green Machine family in 2008.

How things easily change in football. The scenes of last Thursday night echoed Moses Chunga's words upon his return to CAPS when he boasted that he does not have permanent enemies in soccer. Chunga is a darling again among CAPS fans.

"I don’t have permanent enemies. And supporters always change, if you win they will be happy and if you lose it is vice versa,” Chunga said on Thursday.

Clive Kawinga scored the solitary goal that gave CAPS the three points at Rufaro stadium in the 30th minute on Thursday.

On Saturday, Chunga choked his second consecutive win when his Green Machine cruised to a victory in another league match against home team FC Victoria at Mucheke Stadium in Masvingo. Last Chibwiro's strike in the 58th is all that CAPS needed to end the week with a total of 6 points.

CAPS, under new broom Chunga have swept their way to 5th place on the log from the 10th position Bambo found them languishing in.

Pacesetters Motor Action are proving unstoppable at the summit of the PSL table. The Mighty Bulls continued with their winning streak with a convincing 2-0 victory over visiting Hwange FC at the Motor Action Sports Club on Saturday.

The log leaders have now amassed 38 points from 15 matches, and lead second placed Dynamos, who though have four games in hand, by 10 points. Motor Action have a healthy goal difference of about 23, which is only followed by Dynamos' 11.

CAPS, despite their revival under Chunga, are a sorry 16 points adrift of the log leaders, a stark reality which the reigning coach of the year Chunga is concerned about.

"The reality is we are 15 points behind Motor Action but we are capable of winning 10 games in a row, but that will be determined by the way we apply ourselves,” Bambo mourned on Thursday after leading his new team to their first of the two wins in a row.

Chunga won the 2009 league with Gunners before he made a shock resignation citing disagreement with his employers over unclear reasons. He was then announced as Shooting Stars coach for the 2010 season. Before the season commenced, Chunga surprised the soccer fraternity in Zimbabwe when he quit his post under a cloud.

Controversies have dogged the coaching career of one of Zimbabwe's finest soccer players of all time. He has now coached more than three clubs within a space of 12 months.

Bambo, played for Dynamos during his playing career, and then moved to Anderlecht in the Belgian Jupiler League. He was clearly the Warriors' best player for years until he passed on the play-maker's button to a young Peter Ndlovu in the early '90s.
