Chunga relishes new challenge


HARARE – Newly-appointed Harare City coach Moses Chunga is relishing the challenge ahead of his team’s match against Ngezi Platinum Stars at Baobab Stadium on Sunday.

Chunga was appointed as the new Sunshine Boys’ head coach following the sacking of Taurai Mangwiro last week over poor results.


Addressing journalists for the first time since his appointment at a press briefing yesterday Chunga says he is ready for the challenge.

“I’m ambitious that’s why I agreed to work with Harare City. It is my job and it is my life. I considered the offer and accepted the job,” Chunga said.

Despite having three players with national team Chunga has decided their match should go ahead.

City have Rapheal Manuvire, Farai Madhanaga and Blessing Moyo, who travelled to Namibia for the Cosafa Castle Cup tournament.

“We have got material that’s why we agreed when we have three players with the national team. The target is the top three. We can do it because there is nothing to fear than fear itself,” said Chunga.

He added: “Anyone with talent will be given the chance to play but it doesn’t mean that I dislike older players because when I won the championship I had a mixture of old and young players.”

The Sunshine Boys are currently in 10th place on the log with nine points from eight matches while Ngezi are in 11th place, a point behind.
