Chitembwe explains reasons behind leaving Harare City to rejoin CAPS United

Lloyd Chitembwe says his return to CAPS United was necessitated by the need to move out of comfort zone and compete for honours in a pressure environment.

The gaffer left Harare City after taking charge of the first game of the season early this month. He subsequently rejoined the Green Machine on a two-year contract, replacing Darlington Dodo.

Chitembwe started his latest tenure with Makepekepe on Sunday, playing a goalless draw against his former side, the Sunshine Boys.

“I am a coach who wants to win things,” he said, as quoted by the Herald. “This is the reason I came back to CAPS United.

“I was very comfortable at Harare City, they are one club that I tell you will always give you the support that you need, as a coach, and I have respect for that institution.

“Maybe, one thing that I felt I really needed more, apart from my welfare of course, was winning things.

“This is the reason I am here.

“I enjoy working under pressure and I was missing it for the last two years. I could feel a very important part of me was missing.

“So, it’s really interesting for me to be back and I am looking forward to the challenge.”

Chitembwe won the 2016 Castle Lager Premiership title and continued his tenure until 2019 when he left the side.
