FORMER Caps United coach, Taurai Mangwiro, has said he is ready for his new challenge at Harare City.

Mangwiro said this after he was unveiled as head coach of the Sunshine Boys in Harare on Wednesday.

The coach, who was also being targeted by Dynamos, penned a three year deal which is performance related.

He quit the Green Machine last week with his assistants Mike Madzivanyika and Richard Tswatswa who were also unveiled as some of the assistant coaches at City.

Mangwiro also called up his former assistant at Caps United Mkuphali Masuku who will be assistant coach responsible for defence with Madzivanyika coming in as assistant coach responsible for attack.

Tswatswa will be the juniors' goalkeeping coach.

Masimba Dinyero who was interim coach was relegated to the juniors and will be responsible for talent scouting.

Former Motor Action coach David George was unveiled as director of junior development while former Dynamos coach Elvis Chiweshe was appointed coach responsible for the club’s academy.

Mangwiro was excited with the appointment but told reporters he was not at Harare because of the money.

“I chose Harare City not because of money. If there was an award for peace and tranquillity, Harare City would win,” he said.

“After the turbulence I went through at Caps United, I thought I deserved some peace. I wouldn’t want to take anything away from Caps.

“It wasn’t an easy to walk away from Caps United. I just felt it was time for me to leave.

“If there is a team that I am indebted to it is Caps United. They rescued me from the Asiagate. They brought me back into football.”

He added: “It’s a challenge to coach Harare City. Last year they lost the championship on goal difference.

“This year they did not have a good start but with the technical team which I have rolled out I think we will be able to achieve if we work hard.

“I am not one who feels threatened. I look at them as colleagues because we are not in competition.”
