No new faces at CAPS United


Former champions CAPS United appear to be big fans of English premiership side Arsenal.
After selling five experienced players to South African clubs, the African Confederations Cup representatives have cynically declared that they are not going onto the market to beef up their squad.
The Twine Phiri- owned side realised about R3 million after letting go top marksman Nyasha Mushekwi, Method Mwanjali, Tafadzwa Rusike, Lionel Mtizwa and Oscar Machapa.Mushekwi, Mwanjali and Mtizwa joined South Africa’s richest club Mamelodi Sundowns while Rusike is now based in Cape Town where he will feature for Ajax Cape Town. Machapa is now a bird with Moroka Swallows.
Despite losing the experienced quintet, CAPS chief executive officer Maxwell Mironga yesterday said: “We had 33 players on our books and we are left with 28. We are satisfied with what we have and we will not be buying any players.”
For those who follow English soccer, this sounds like Arsenal who never replaced their superstars like Thierry Henry, Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure. CAPS United fans will have to live with this reality, but hope that the championship race and the Confederations Cup will be won with squad they have.
