CAPS UNITED head coach, Darlington Dodo says he is satisfied with the quality of players that the club has attracted in the build-up to the 2020 Premier Soccer League season which is expected to start in March.
2019 brought heartache to Caps United fans after losing the title to FC Platinum on the final day.
With those memories now water under the bridge and having attracted a number of new players, Makepekepe head coach, Darlington Dodo is pleased with the talent the club has attracted so far.
“This is a good lot this is a good team this is a composition of a team that has players who have got self-motivation, some they have got ambitions and when they got here when I was discussing with them before the season started you could tell that probably quite a number of players that are coming to Caps feel Caps is a bridge which can take them to the promised land to play out of Zimbabwe,” said Dodo.
With Caps United now three weeks into its pre-season preparations, Dodo says they are still looking at possible additions.
After falling just short of landing the 2019 psl title, Dodo is bullish the current squad will do better than last year.
“We are trying to make a team that can compete and a balanced team that can do better than we did last year. We had a good team last year they fought a very good race, yes we did not finish they way we wanted it was just unfortunate but I think we are just enhancing the team to make sure we do better than we did last season,” he said .
While Dynamos, Ngezi Platinum and Chicken Inn have made numerous acquisitions in the pre-season period, Caps United has been among the most active PSL teams on the transfer market, luring the likes of Leeroy Mavhunga, Tatenda Tumba, Tatenda Munditi, Ishmael Wadi and Innocent Mucheneka, just to name a few.
Blessing Sarupinda, Ronald Chitiyo, Kelvin Ndebele and Phineas Bamusi are among some of the players retained by the club after the majority were released owing to disciplinary issues.
