Injured Chitiyo feels abandoned

Ronald Chitiyo is disappointed with CAPS United after the club has taken too long to secure funds for him to undergo knee surgery in South Africa.

The 26-year old was a victim of a hit and run accident six months ago which left his knee shattered in Epworth, Harare. He requires about R115 000 ($12 000) for the operation.

In an interview with Sunday Mail, Chitiyo feels abandoned by Makepekepe who might deregister him during this mid-season transfer window.

“People love you when you are fit and playing, but when you are down and out they seem not to care much,” said Chitiyo.

“Yes I wasn’t injured on the field of play, but I expected the club to help me because I am a Caps United player.

“If I mattered to them would they be dragging their feet on this matter? Can a club like Caps United not raise such an amount? How about borrowing?

“I love Caps United and expect them to love me back. I might not be playing, but I am always at the stadium to watch every home game, I am always going to the dressing room to see the coach and the other players.”

Chitiyo’s injury was initially expected to keep him on the sidelines for not more than three weeks, but it emerged later after the midfielder aggravated the injury by rushing back to training in April, that it needed specialist treatment.
