“The point is that my contract is expiring on December 31 and I am happy with the job I have done. I leave Harare City a vibrant team and if well taken care of, it will make a mark in future in Zimbabwe. I have nothing much to say, but remember when I was appointed they said we shared the same vision of grooming youths and I am happy with what I did,” he said yesterday.
Chunga was appointed coach of the Sunshine City Boys in June taking over from Taurai Mangwiro, who was fired over poor results.
Mangwiro had been given a target to finish in the top three, but the club management predicted the former Caps United coach would not achieve the targets and got rid of him to rope in Chunga.
Chunga led Harare City to a ninth-place finish and the city fathers have decided against renewing his contract opting to elevate assistant coach, Mkhupali Masuku to the post of head coach. Bambo leaves the club a proud man after he unearthed young players, whom he thinks will drive City in the coming season.
One of the highlights for Chunga this season was leading his team to a 2-1 win over FC Platinum at Rufaro, which dented the Zvishavane-based side’s chances of winning the championship.
The Sunshine City Boys finished the season on 39 points. They managed 11 wins, six draws and 13 defeats the whole campaign.
