CAPS off to Mozambique

HARARE - Harare giants CAPS United are scheduled to leave for Mozambique this morning for a series of friendly matches as they gear up for the upcoming 2016 Castle Lager Premiership season.

The Green Machine has lived in the shadows of their arch-rivals Dynamos and Highlanders in recent years and has shown its intent to reclaim past glory.

Makepekepe’s 2016 aspirations have already been underlined by what appears to be an ambitious set-up since Farai Jere took over the presidency of the club from Twine Phiri last year.

Lloyd Chitembwe’s side will play against Ferroviaro Maputo, Ferroviaro Beira and Text Africa to put his team in shape ahead of the new campaign which kicks off in April.

This will be an opportunity for the Green Machine players to impress their coach.

After being busy on the transfer market, Makepekepe fans are expecting a thriller even though these are just off-season warm-up matches.

Makepekepe have added a number of new faces as they look to fight for titles in the upcoming season.

The Green Machine has signed ZPC Kariba defender Dennis Dauda, Allen Gahadzikwa formerly with FC Platinum, returning trio of Ronald Pfumbidzayi, Method Mwanjali and goalkeeper Edmore Sibanda.

Former Dynamos midfielders Archieford Gutu and Devon Chafa have also signed for the Green Machine while former players Tafadzwa Rusike and defender Gilbert Mapemba are also back at the team where they made their names.

The Green Machine last achieved success in 2005 when they won back to back titles under the guidance of dreadlocked Charles Mhlauri before taking a dip in form that has

virtually left them a pale shadow of the former Cup Kings.
