“We cannot donate points again. We need to redeem ourselves after we dropped crucial points last week at home. We have another opportunity at home and must have drawn some lessons from last week’s defeat. But against Chicken Inn, we are not going to dwell much on the loss to Tsholotsho. Everyone is raring to go,” Head coach Taurai Mangwiro

The veteran goalkeeper is a member of the national team and is currently in South Africa for the African Nations Championships. Caps United coach Taurai Mangwiro revealed yesterday they would open talks with Dube once he returns from national duty.

“We want to retain the goalkeepers we had last season. Tafadzwa Dube’s contract with us expired last year and we want to re-engage him. We will open talks with him once he returns from South Africa where he is on national duty. So far, we have Jorum Muchambo and Chris Mverechena as two of our goalkeepers,” said Mangwiro.

He also said they had re-signed Asani Nhongo from Chiredzi outfit Hippo Valley. Nhongo — a former Caps United left-back had joined the Chiredzi outfit who were gunning for promotion into the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) under the guidance of Moses Chunga. But after helping the team secure a ticket into the topflight league last year, Nhongo has decided to return to the Harare giants.

Caps is hoping to bring in an assistant foreign coach to strengthen their technical team following the departure of Saul Chaminuka who joined newly-promoted PSL side ZPC Kariba.

Former Eagles coach Mike “Dread” Madzivanyika has already been roped in as one of the assistant coaches while the club is still waiting to interview Richard Tswatswa for the goalkeeper’s coach position after Brenna Msiska was sidelined in a restructuring exercise which saw him redeployed to the juniors.
