Caps United chief executive Joe Makuvire revealed yesterday that the Young Warriors left-back was successful on his trials with Hobro IK.
“He was successful, we will issue a statement,” was all Makuvire could say before referring further questions to club representative Michael Sorensen.
Efforts to get comment from Sorensen proved fruitless yesterday.
But Pfumbidzai confirmed: “I did my part as a player. The coach told me he was impressed. Now there are talks going on with my club Caps United. I am not supposed to comment on this. I am waiting to hear on what they have agreed.”
In March, Sorensen was in Zimbabwe to scout for talent and watched the Premier Soccer League match between Harare City and Chicken Inn.
“I have attended Harare City and Caps United training sessions as well as watching this game.
“This trip is about coming to see the best of Zimbabwean football talent. I would rather not mention the players who have impressed me so far. If I mention names the players would become expensive when we try to buy them. For sure I will always be coming to Zimbabwe to scout for more players,” Sorenson told our sister paper The Standard then.
Pfumbidzai was part of the Young Warriors squad that drew 2-2 against Swaziland on Sunday to advance to the third and final qualifying round of the Under-23 African Championships. He scored an equaliser from the penalty spot which ensured the Young Warriors advanced to the third round on away goals rule.
The Caps United left-back was also part of the squad that drew 1-1 against Cameroon in Yaounde to seal a ticket to the All-Africa Games to be staged in Congo Brazzaville in September.
He is expected to start training with the Harare giants today having returned from a successful tour of duty in Swaziland on Monday night ahead of the Week 13 match against Flame Lily at the National Sports Stadium.
