CHAPUNGU FC central midfielder, Gracious Muleya, who joined the relegated Midlands outfit last season from Bulawayo Chiefs feels hard done.
It seems his career swings up and down and that has become a headache for him.
For those who do not do not know him, he is that player who scored the opener for Chapungu FC when his side hosted Caps United at the end the season.
But it turns out his move to Waru Waru, as Chapungu are affectionately known, has left him with a torn apart heart.
“I never thought my team will get relegated at the end of the season. It hurts me so much because in the first stanza of the season we showed so much brilliance and everyone was hopeful that we will survive relegation, but somehow things turned bad for us and we were relegated,” he said.
He added: “Bro to say the truth I felt like crying but I had to be strong as it pains to see your team being demoted to Division One.”
When he left Bulawayo Chiefs he was riding on a purple patch as he was the leading goal scorer with nine goals under his belt. But when he joined his current club he did not quickly adjust to their playing structure.
“For a new environment a lukewarm performance is expected as such in my first games I was trying to adapt to the new place and their playing structure and brand of play. Towards the end of the season I had found my feet that is why when we hosted Caps United towards the end of the season I scored an opener,” the former Bulawayo Chiefs captain said with a smile.
Gracious shot down any chance of going down with his team to the unfashionable Division One League.
“This is a good side! But I won’t be going down to play in the Division One league. I am waiting for new offers and there are some coaches who have expressed interest in my services, that’s what I can say as of now,” he revealed.
