MWANJALI FOR CAPS?
9 January 2018
FORMER Warriors captain Method Mwanjali could bounce back at CAPS United this January to stabilise ship.
Mwanjali has been part of Simba in Tanzania since 2016 where he was an influential member for the club.
The player’s manager George Deda could not deny or confirm a move to bring back the player yesterday.
“I think the best people to talk to at the moment will be the CAPS United management. If there is anything official, I will then be in a position to give you details,” Deda said.
CAPS United chief executive Cuthbert Chitima could not be reached for a comment.
However, insiders say Mwanjali is one of the targets at the Green Machine as they try to bring experience into the team.
“Enquiries have been made and if the player shows interest, he will bounce back subject to personal terms negotiations.
“Chances of him coming will also be high if he is not given a counter offer from where he is, something which is likely,” said the source.
CAPS United have lost a number of good players since 2016 when they won the title.
The exodus has left coach Lloyd Chitembwe with a mammoth task of rebuilding the team ahead of the 2018 season.
Mwanjali, 33, can be used in central defence or as a defensive midfielder, a position that was mostly played by Devon Chafa.
The imminent coming on board of sponsors, NetOne, who are set to sponsor Dynamos, Highlanders and CAPS United, has given the 2016 champions muscle to strengthen their team.
Each of the team will have at least US$50 000 to spend on sign on fees while the other US$300 000 will be for salaries.
In the past, CAPS United president Farai Jere has mostly been financing the team.
