Former warriors coach, Moses ‘Bambo’ Chunga believes his football project which he is set to register in Division two league will be rubbing shoulders with the big guys in Premier Soccer League by 2019.
The nomadic gaffer who has coached Dynamos, Caps United, Gunners among other Premier Soccer League clubs said his inactivity has been a sabbatical period allowing him to concentrate on developing his own project which he hopes will sneak into the PSL in two years time.
Bambo was speaking at the official launch of Dream Lives for Africa Trust (DLAT) a non-governmental organisation operating in Gokwe recently.
“Soon I am looking to register a club in division two and for us we say the sky is the limit. I am very ambitious, we really have to be and I can say in two years’ time we will be in the PSL,” Chunga said.
Chunga, who opened a soccer academy in his name in Harare dubbed the Moses Bambo Chunga Academy and dedicated to developing young talent between 12 and 23 years, says most players will come from the academy.
He bemoaned lack of training equipment and technical personnel to groom the upcoming youngsters in such areas calling for relevant stakeholders to assist.
Meanwhile, Chunga, who is also the Under 17 National Team coach said some coaches are destroying young player’s football careers, victimizing and benching them for being groomed by other individuals.
“Coaches should not victimize young players by not using them because they are afraid that people will say ‘mpfana waChunga’ (Chunga’s boy). That is killing their careers,” he said.
Chunga called on football administrators, technical staff, journalists and player agents to work together to take football forward and desist from invading each other’s spaces.
