Mwanjali relishes CAPS return

HARARE - CAPS United skipper Method Mwanjali says he is pleased to be back at the club that gave him fame and a platform to pursue his professional career outside the country.

Mwanjali, who left the country six years ago for South African top flight league where he featured for Mamelodi Sundowns and Mpumalanga Black Aces, says he is relishing the opportunity of reviving his romance with the Green Machine.

The versatile Mwanjali was immediately installed the captain and marked his return when he was introduced as a second half substitute in the 3-0 win over Chapungu at the National Sports Stadium last weekend.

United travel to Baobab Stadium this weekend to face newboys Ngezi Platinum Stars, who also started their season with a 3-0 away win over Mutare City Rovers last weekend.

“We have been working very hard at training. It doesn’t bother us that they won their first match, what matters is what we will do as a team so we will just take each game as it comes,” Mwanjali said yesterday.

“We will go there trying to get a win and at the end of the day it’s how we are going to apply ourselves trying to achieve that.

“It was a good feeling for me, it has been a while since I last played for CAPS and I would like to thank the coaches and supporters for affording me the opportunity to express myself and also the players for supporting me.”

On being given the Makepekepe armband Mwanjali said: “I’m privileged to be working with the new guys, some of them I have played with them before. I think it’s quite a good and talented group but what’s important is how we understand each other in our attempt to achieve our goals as a club.”

Makepekepe coach Lloyd Chitembwe said they will not underrate Ngezi on Sunday.

“The fact that they are a new team in the premier league does not mean we will go there and play differently,” Chitembwe said.

“We will try and play our normal game, to win matches. I know half the team; we have worked together at some point in our careers.

“We derive motivation from expectations and as a unit we believe in our abilities. Last weekend’s result was only good for our confidence.”
