Caps eye unsettled Christian Ntouba

HARARE football giants Caps United are keeping tabs on unsettled Dynamos striker Christian Ntouba in the hope that he will be cleared following protracted negotiations over his outstanding dues.

Dynamos owe the Cameroonian $16 000, which includes part of his signing-on fees and unpaid allowances from last season.

Although he has been training with the team, he refused to travel to Bulawayo where his team lost to Chicken Inn in the opening match of the season at the weekend.

Caps United chief executive Cuthbert Chitima told Newsday Sport yesterday that they still had a slot for a striker and would be ready to sign any player if coach Lloyd Chitembwe approves it.

“We don’t have any problem (in signing him). We are ready to sign the player as long as the coach approves it. We still have another slot,” Chitima said.

Chitembwe, however, said he was not in a position to comment on a player who was contracted to another club.

“I don’t think it’s proper for me to comment on a player who is contracted to another club. He (Christian) is a Dynamos player and I can’t comment anything on him,” Chitembwe said.

The player’s manager Gilbert Sengwe has been trying to negotiate with Dynamos so that they pay him part of the money he is owed.

Those negotiations have, however, not yielded results and yesterday, with the Glamour Boys who had initially said they had secured $6 500 offered to pay $5 000 instead, which was rejected by Sengwe, who accused the club of not being sincere.

The two parties had agreed that the player would be paid part of the money before the start of the season. However, that did not happen with Dynamos claiming their coffers are dry.


Sengwe said the only option left now was to engage Dynamos so that they clear the player to allow him to move on with his life.

“I think there is no progress and the only option left is to engage them so that they clear the player. Look, he is a family man and they (Dynamos) have been failing to even propose a payment plan. We want the way forward for the player so that he moves on,” Sengwe said.

  1. Mr Sengwe you should bear it in mind that Dynamos is a community team which realises its revenue from gate takings and the partial sponsorship from Netone.What is the motive behind your refusal to accept $5000,those arm twisting tactics will not suffice hence the need for common sense to prevail.Christian should accept this offer,make a payment plan for the balance and start delivering in Dembare colours or else he will shipped out to any club but he will not feature against the Harare giants like what we did to Mukamba.After all he was one of the reasons why we failed to land the big one last season for hot head,cool down man we still need you.

  2. It is very unfortunate that the people’s team is being run by zanuoids who impoverished the country and now the people’s team. This team is suffering because of one individual just like the whole country was suffering because one individual. Time has come to coup det’at this person so that the team can reclaim its past glory.

  3. Caps have too many ‘great names’ in their team, but have nothing to show for it.

  4. Where are the 7million supporters who make all the noise in the stadiums???

  5. Where are the 7 million supporters who make all the disturbing noise at the stadiums??? Yeh1YEH1 Dimbabre!DI! DI!

  6. What can you expect from good-for-nothing gangsters like Bhanditi Mariyoti?? Absolutely zilch!!!

  7. Yaah team yava in tatters manje.Management yaana Mubaiwa inotora mari ichityorera muhomwe iyo ichiguta yoga.Apa yakatengerwa maballs ne caps chokwadi ndochii ichocho.

  8. The 7 million supporters can’t contribute money so that idiots like Mubaiwa benefits, these people are stupid.

  9. The Cameroonian should report dynamos to FIFA. Disciplinary measures should be taken on dynamos. The foreign player is being used like a slave and the world should be told that there is a stup!d club in Zim by the name dynamos, that is not paying players their salaries and signed on fees. Clubs that uses JUJU are so poor. They dont have club houses, training grounds, home grounds of their own and even transport.
    Chitembwe is known for his reluctance in giving foreign players ample game time. Even if Ntouba is signed by Caps, he will warm the substitute bench for many games.
