CAPS United vice-president Nhamo Tutisani yesterday said they were yet to ascertain why coach Lloyd Chitembwe is not turning up for duty.
Chitembwe did not travel with the team for their 1-0 defeat at ZPC Kariba on Saturday.
This was H-Metro last Friday revealed that he did not turn up for the team’s Thursday training raising speculation that he wants out.
“For now I am also in the dark, I don’t know about (Lloyd) Chitembwe’s whereabouts.
“We are having a technical meeting tomorrow (today), only by then I will be in a good position to shed more light on his issue. I heard he was coming to training but was not consistent, it was an off and on affair. I don’t know why,” said Tutisani.
Despite Chitembwe not showing up for two consecutive matches, Tutisani dismissed reports that he is on his way out.
The 2016 championship winning coach did not also attend Makepekepe’s last match at home – a 3-3 against TelOne.
“Chitembwe is our employee and I am about business, there is no bad blood between us, we only have different opinions.
“I am all about business, I still need Chitembwe to coach the team, and I see something special in him,” he said.
He said even club president Farai Jere is not aware of the issues behind Chitembwe’s boycott.
There were reports of interferences in team selection which saw Chitembwe clashing with former team Nick Munyonga.
There are also reports of fissures within the technical team with fitness trainer Majaha Ndlovu reported to be on his way to Kalisto Pasuwa’s Nyasa Big Bullets in Malawi.
“If I don’t like him (Chitembwe) and I can easily fire him and that will be that, no one can stop me from doing that.
“But we put money in football and it’s not about emotions but it’s about what’s good for business,” added Tutisani.
