Pfumbidzai fast tracks wedding

HARARE - CAPS United midfielder Ronald Pfumbidzai had to bring forward his wedding to wife Graduate after sealing his move to South Africa Absa Premiership side Bloemfontein Celtic.

The two lovebirds had intended to tie the knot later in December this year but their plans were interrupted after Pfumbidzai impressed Phunya Sele Sele coach Luc Eymael during a trial period last month.

Initially, Pfumbidzai was scheduled to spend only a week while Celtic observed him but the club ended up extending the trial by another week.

Pfumbidzai played his last match for Makepekepe on Wednesday during the 2-1 win over Black Rhinos at the National Sports Stadium and is expected to leave the country this weekend to join his new teammates.

“It was now a tricky situation and in the end we had to tie the knot at the court last week Wednesday,” Pfumbidzai said.

“It was going to be a problem for me to ask my new club time off to come back to Zimbabwe to plan for the wedding. We will have a big celebration later on when I get the time but at least for now I’m a married man.”

The 22-year-old said he is still torn between Makepekepe and his new club due to the good times he had at the Green Machine. 

“I had a good time at CAPS United. After returning from Denmark, I had a good season last year with the club and we won the championship,” the former Hobro IK player said.

“The club has given me a good send off and I hope the guys will continue doing well for the club.

“CAPS United is like my home. This is the only team that I have played for in the Premiership. When I’m at CAPS, I feel welcomed and like I’m at home.

“However, on the other side, I’m also happy because my career is going up another level with this move.

“I’m sad to leave CAPS but at the same time I’m happy that I’m moving to another top club and league.”

Pfumbidzai admitted that he will have to be at his best to secure a regular starting place in the Siwelele first team.

“Where I’m going I have to fight hard to get into the team because I will not be guaranteed a jersey in the first 11 like what was happening at CAPS,” he said while also thanking the club’s fans for the love they showed him.

“I want to thank the fans for all the support they have given me and my teammates throughout my time at CAPS United.

“Last season, the fans were really behind us when we won the championship and even this season when we were losing, they never gave up on us.

“I also want to thank my coaches to keep on working to improve the players at the club so that they can be able to move abroad.”
