Harare City coach Lloyd Chitembwe has responded to reports that he is targeting to snatch five players from his former club CAPS United.
Media reports claimed this week that the gaffer was planning to raid the Green Machine some of their key players namely Joel Ngodzo, Newman Sianchali, Valentine Musarurwa, John Zhuwawu and Kudzai Nyamupfukudza.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday ahead of the Chibuku Super Cup tie against United on Saturday, Chitembwe rubbished the claims and blamed all this on “football politics.”
He said: “I know this is all football politics, but it is unfortunate for people to stoop as low as this.
“I know the people behind all this, I thought they have since moved on because I have moved on.
“I am now at Harare City and very happy, but there are some people who are still afraid of my shadow at Caps United.
“I have a very good relationship with the Caps United supporters, and that is why they saluted me before that last match. No one will take away my legacy at that club,” added Chitembwe as he gave reference to a league match played last week.
The Chibuku Super Cup encounter will be played at the National Sports Stadium, and kick-off is at 3 pm.
