HIGHLANDERS have captured youngster Cleopas Kapupurika from rivals Dynamos on a two-year-deal.
Kapupurika revealed he wanted to renew his stay at DeMbare where Lloyd Chigowe’s rebuilding exercise continues.
“I wanted to renew my contract with Dynamos but I then thought that a change would be good for me and my career.
“I think I made the right move for my career because it’s a privilege to play for two of the biggest and oldest club’s in Zimbabwe.
“These are big teams and it’s every player’s wish to play for at least one of the club so I have been privileged,” he said.
H-Metro heard Kapupurika was not in DeMbare’s coach Lloyd Chigowe’s plans.
In the process, the speedy winger capitalised on Bosso’s faith in young talent to join latest signings like Bukhosi Sibanda and returnee Prince Dube.
“I am grateful for this opportunity and I will try to do my best in making sure that I prove my worth to the team.
“With God on my side I will be able to do exploit and I just want to thank him for this opportunity,” he added.
The skilful player said he hopes to improve under Madinda Ndlovu.
“My aim is that I become a better player and to be on next season’s calendar.
“I also want to make an impact in the team and make sure that I get enough game time because what’s important is for me is to play.
“I think I have been given an opportunity to go to the next level because I aim to even go abroad after my two years here,” he added.
The player said he is unfazed by the new challenge as he wishes DeMbare well.
“I think all coaches want the same thing, but I will do what my new coach wants and follow his instructions.
“I spent two years with Dynamos, they are and will always be a great team I loved it there.
“I had a great time there, growing up I always wished to play for Dynamos and that wish was fulfilled. Hapana chandingashore paDynamos.
“I wish to go back there in the future, maybe in the next five years,” he said.
