Chunga wants new signings

HARARE - Buffaloes coach Moses Chunga is confident his side will complete a number of deals to boost his squad ahead of the 2015 Castle Premiership season.

The Mutare side fought against relegation for most parts of last year and only survived the chop on the last day of the season.

Chunga, who is known for his bias towards recruiting young players, was rewarded for saving the side from relegation after his contract was extended by one more year.

The nomadic coach’s mandate now is to develop Buffaloes into a competitive side that plays without the threat of relegation hovering over their head all season long.

“We are definitely going to buy a couple of new players,” Chunga told Daily News yesterday.

“For now I can’t reveal who the players are and where they are coming from, but all I can say is that we will definitely sign new players even if they have to come from outside the country.

“Last season was a difficult year for us and we don’t want to be in the same situation. We have already started our preparations.

“We don’t want to put ourselves under unnecessary pressure. What I can say for now is we want to play good football this year and so far so good; the signs are good.

“I am sure by next week we will be able to unveil new players.”

Chunga has already started by reshuffling his technical team. He brought former Dynamos and CAPS United midfielder Joseph Takaringofa as his new assistant coach.

Takaringofa replaces Timothy Masachi, who was sacked by Chunga earlier this year.

Chunga is also making frantic efforts to retain the services of veteran key midfielder Tafadzwa Mombeshora, who is reportedly on his way out of the team.

Mombeshora has been linked with a move to How Mine, who have already snapped up defender Moses Gutu.
