Chitembwe takes charge at Caps as Mathe demotted

LLOYD Chitembwe is back at Caps United as head coach.
He replaces Mark Mathe, who has been relegated to the position of assistant coach following the club’s 2-1 loss to Chapungu on Sunday.
Fungai Kwashi was not lucky though as he has been fired in changes announced on Tuesday morning.
The rest of the technical team remains in place.
Chitembwe held fort at Caps two seasons ago before his unceremonious departure and has been given the mandate of pushing the club into the top four in the last nine matches.
Should he manage he has a chance to get the position on a permanent basis next season.
Said club owner Farai Jere; “Mark is a good coach; we don’t want to destroy him because we know he still has a lot to offer to the club.
“But there is always pressure in a club like Caps United and the demand for results is high.”
When Caps drew 0-0 against Dongo Sawmill in Harare the alarm bells were already ringing as Mathe, who replaced Mark Harrison, was already sitting on a two match ultimatum.
The Chapungu loss was the last straw and that left Caps in seventh place with seven wins, nine draws and five losses.
They have 30 points, 13 off leaders Chicken Inn and nine behind bitter Harare giants and defending champions Dynamos.
