Sunday Chidzambga on Wednesday resigned from his role as Warriors coach, leaving soccer pundits and fans bewildered by his sudden departure.
“Mhofu”, as Chidzambga is called in football circles, informed Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) president, Felton Kamambo that he was quitting with immediate effect.

According to a Chronicle report, Mhofu threw in the towel after he received information that ZIFA was set to dismiss his technical team soon after the CHAN game against Mauritius on Sunday.
Chidzambga was set to meet the ZIFA leadership after completing a Warriors training session at the Yadah Hotel complex on Wednesday afternoon to air his concerns.
The meeting, which was initially scheduled for 2 pm, was moved to 3 pm and again to the evening but Chidzambga had made up his mind to quit.
On Monday Chidzambga had told The Herald that so many things were going on but he was reluctant to give more details. He said then:
I am told the players should be getting into camp (today). Unfortunately, I cannot comment any further at the moment because so many things are happening.
For now, you can talk to either the team manager or the people at Zifa.
Mhofu resigned just two days after agreeing to a new deal to take charge of the Warriors.
Meanwhile, Rahman Gumbo will take charge Sunday’s match against Mauritius and will be assisted by Lloyd Mutasa.
