Caps United coach Lloyd Chitembwe reckons that the Chibuku Super Cup affords his club a realistic chance of having another dance in the African safari next as the league title is now clearly out of their reach.
Caps United who participated in the African champions league this year, were drawn against Ngezi Platinum in the first round of the Chibuku Super Cup and Chitembwe says they have to go past the Ngezi Platinum hurdle first for them to get back into Africa by winning the trophy.
The winner of the Chibuku Cup will represent Zimbabwe in the Confederation Cup next year.
” We are a team that is going through a transition but we are still good enough to go all the way to the final and win the trophy. We are still trying to come up with a strong possible squad like we had last season of which it’s a process but we still have a team that can do well in this tournament,” said Chitembwe.
” Its not going to be easy because all the matches that we played against them this season have been very tough. So we are expecting a tough match but still confident that we are going to do well,”.
Caps United were booted out in the first round by Tsholotsho who were fighting relegation during the 2016 edition.
The clash between the two clubs is the pick of the first round matches, with Ngezi Platinum being the holders after beating fellow platinum miners FC Platinum last year looking forward to retaining the cup.
Ngezi Platinum and Caps United played out a two all draw in the first half of the season in the league before Makepekepe emerged comfortable 3-0 victors in the reverse fixture recently. No team has retained the Chibuku Cup since its return with FC Platinum winning the first edition before Harare City who felt robbed by Platinum winning it in 2015.
Ngezi Platinum won it in their maiden year in the premiership last year.
