PSL clubs back in training


CAPS United and defending champions FC Platinum resumed training yesterday as they prepare for the second round of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) campaign.

Dynamos are expected to kick off their training this morning as the league marathon enters the decisive stage.

The Green Machine finished the first round of the campaign sitting on a six-match losing streak which included a 3-0 defeat to rivals Dynamos in the Harare derby.

That defeat left them just a point above the relegation zone. The PSL went on a two-week break a week ago with matches expected to resume on June 25.

And with Caps coach Lloyd Chitembwe aware their work is cut out, the team got down to business as they hope for  a change of fortunes following a spate of dreadful results in the last six matches of the first round.

Caps captain Phineas Bhamusi recently said the two-week break came at the right moment for them.

“We feel that the two-week break came at the right time. Our house was on fire. Things were not moving well for us. Our season was going down. It is not what we expected; we have always wanted to be among the best as a big football brand. Hopefully, by the end of the break, everyone would have recharged their batteries,” he said.

Stung by the dreadful run, the club hierarchy is plotting to raid the transfer market to shore up the team with Caps chief executive officer Charlie Jones saying they were watching the market with keen interest.

The  Chitembwe-coached side severed ties with defender Dennis Dauda, striker Clive Augusto and goalkeeper Simba Chinani over alleged threats to boycott their league match against Cranborne Bullets. Former captain Ronald Chitiyo decided to jump ship, having been accused of playing a role in the fracas ahead of the Cranborne Bullets defeat.
