Mangwiro staying put at CAPS United

CAPS United coach Taurai Mangwiro says he is staying put at the Harare giants as he has a three year deal to steer side back to glory.
Media reports had recently suggested Mangwiro would walk away from Caps United because of the hostile operating environment he faced with his players last term.
Players at times went for months without salaries and allowances and it had been suggested Mangwiro was not happy with that and was seriously considering leaving the Green Machine.
The coach had also been linked with a move to Triangle but he said he was still committed to the Harare giants.
He said he had since recommended the recruitment of an assistant coach to the club’s board of directors following the departure of Saul Chaminuka to Premiership new boys ZPC Kariba.
“I have a three year mandate at Caps United,” he said.
“I have already submitted my recommendations for my assistant to the board for approval. I need a good coach to assist me. I am not that kind of coach who feels threatened by working with a good coach because all I want is when I am not there, the void should not be felt.
“I am now waiting to hear a feedback from the board on my recommendations. There are going to be changes in the technical team as well as in the junior development.”
Caps United did well last term, finishing in fifth position under Mangwiro and his assistants Chaminuka and goalkeepers coach Brenna Msiska.
United are still to appoint a team that oversees the day-to-day running of the club following the dissolution of the Joe Makuvire led executive.
The Harare giants have however, appointed a six-member board comprising lawyer Lewis Uriri, Alex Munyaka, Nhamo Tutisani, medical doctor Mordecai Sachikonye, Khumbulani Mhlope and Munyaradzi Mazhande.Advertisement
