CAPS United have committed to fund Ronald Chitiyo’s knee surgery.
The 26-year-old suffered torn ligaments after he was hit by a car in Epworth in February.
According to The Herald, club chief executive, Cuthbert Chitima said Chitiyo would undergo surgery which costs R115 000 in South Africa within the next two weeks.
“I think next week or the week after, he (Chitiyo) is going to be operated.
“The club is going to fund that.
“Chitiyo is part and parcel of our team, not just our team, but the national team as well and we need to look after him.
“We actually planned something with the president (Farai Jere) yesterday, and he promised that next week or next week but one, Chitiyo will be operated,” said Chitima.
Meanwhile, a few weeks ago, Zambia-based Zimbabwean doctor, Enos Mufushwa, offered to help the talented star with a free operation but the player’s manager Kudakwashe Chidemo stopped the procedure.
