CHAPUNGU are in the hunt for a new coach a week after former coach John Nyikadzino left the club by mutual consent.

Chapungu chief executive, Chris-Levine Mukotekwa said Nyikadzino left the club at his own will though results were also in the equation.

“He said he wanted a rest.

“It was his decision, he had already told us that he wanted to take a break.

“The results were also a contributing factor to the conclusion that was made,” he said.

The Gweru based outfit finished 13th in the league under Nyikadzino, who spent three seasons in the league with Chapungu since being promoted from Division 1.

Mukotekwa also said they are welcoming CVs from interested parties and will likely have a shortlist of candidates by Friday.

“We are still in the process of identifying a possible successor.

“Those interested are submitting their CVs and anyone is welcome to apply for the job.

“By Friday we should have a shortlist of candidates but as of now we do not have any favourites for the job,” he said.

Nyikadzino confirmed his departure from the Airforce side saying he is taking a break from football and will not be back any time soon.

“The way forward for me is to take a break from football and concentrate on other things.

“Unless something miraculous happens I will not be back any time soon,” he said.

He thanked Chapungu for the time he spent at the club.

“I’m very happy with my time at Chapungu, I had a very good relationship with the authorities,” he added.

Waru-Waru managed 32 points and had to settle for fourth from bottom position.
