Mutuma off to a flier

HARARE - It could be early days yet to regard Roderick Mutuma as the best signing for CAPS United but if his weekend's performance is anything to go by then the former Dynamos striker could play a huge role for his new side.

The self-proclaimed "Prince" joined CAPS United during the current transfer window from bitter rivals Dynamos and was described by his coach Mark Harrison as the biggest signing in the PSL this season.

"I know him well (Mutuma) and he is going to be a tremendous signing for us. Probably one of the biggest signings in the PSL this season in Zimbabwe, make no mistake about that," Harrison said at Mutuma's unveiling earlier this year.

"He is gonna (sic) be a big asset for us and I am looking forward to work with him. I know what he is like; he has got an edge about him. I can deal with players like him. If you get 11 of those you get a championship team.

"He is gonna (sic) be a big asset and we gonna (sic) build around him. We have to bring in more players."

And true to his words, Mutuma did not disappoint at the weekend. The lanky forward turned on the style and exhibited his genius leading the Green Machine to a morale boosting 2-1 win against newly-promoted Whawha at Ascot Stadium.

With a bit of luck and precision, Mutuma could have scored more goals but in the end, most CAPS United faithfuls were satisfied with his contribution.

Mutuma's tireless work ethic up-front and a willingness to chase almost every ball have become a hallmark of his play and several analysts are already tipping him for the top goal-scorer award.

The 26-year-old has so far excelled and seems not to be looking back. It could still be too soon but only time will tell.
