CHIREDZI FC coach Moses Chunga has said he never lost sleep even when they went on a poor run in the Premiership because he has been in a similar situation before. Their first win of the Premiership finally came on Saturday when they beat Bantu Rovers at Luveve with David Temwanjira scoring a brace in the 2-0 victory.

Two years ago, Chunga was appointed technical aiser at Black Mambas and they failed to win their opening seven matches before he parted ways with the club.

“I was not panicking because I have been in a similar situation before with Black Mambas when we failed to win the opening matches.

“We are happy that the win came and the boys are a little bit settled now. I am happy we got a positive result but we never doubted that we were trying our best,” said Chunga yesterday.

This weekend, Chiredzi will meet Chapungu at Chishamiso and Chunga wants his troops to show the same hunger for success they showed in Bulawayo.

“We have to keep our feet on the ground firmly. We are still taking off and the race is a long way to go. For us, it’s important that we do not lose sight of our objective just because of that single win,” said Chunga.

“The objective is that we should not glow and then fizzle out.

“So far the supporters have been fantastic and they have always believed in us. But the challenge remains in securing sponsors for our football.

“In South Africa or England, even the smallest clubs have sponsors but that is not the case with us here. If we get money, we would want to see the bulk of it going to the athletes who lose their energy on the field instead of administration.”

Chiredzi is now home to Fidelis Mangezi, Brighton Pamhirwa, Abel Gwatidzo, Norman Maroto and Rowan Nenzou.
