Another CAPS sale of players?

Cape Town

News from Harare and Cape Town is that CAPS United, a Premier Soccer League club from Zimbabwe has done business once again with a South African club for the sale of a young striker. CAPS fans also fear that three more players could be joining the exodus down south in a few weeks.

The latest player who is reported to have left the CAPS nest is a new recruit, Young Warriors' and former Aces Youth Academy striker Khama Billiart. The talented striker is reported to have joined Ajax Cape Town, a feeder club to Ajax Amsterdam of the Netherlands, for as yet to be disclosed amount of money. The player's departure has been confirmed by the club's Head Coach.

"Khama is gone and we are all happy for him as moving to a club like Ajax Cape Town can only be good for his game," coach Lloyd Chitembwe told the Sunday Mail newspaper on the sidelines of the team's training session at Rufaro Stadium last Friday.

The CAPS coach further confirmed rumours that three CAPS first team players are on their way out of the CAPS football family.

"As long as the coaches are there CAPS United will be fine even if Mukumbi (Nyasha), Sibanda(Edmore) and Mapemba (Gilbert) become the latest players to leave."

CAPS have now lost Billiarrt to Ajax, who also have on their books a former CAPS son Tafadzwa Rusike, th trio of Nyasha Mushekwi, Method Mwanjali and Lionel Mtizwa to Mamelodi Sundowns and Oscar Machapa to Moroka Swallows. If Mushekwi, Mapemba and Sibanda join the 'great trek' down south, it will bring th number of players lost to the CAPS family within a period of nomore than six months  to eight.

The implications of such a massive loss of key players may see CAPS struggle in the Confederations Cup final round where they are scheduled to travel to Sudan for a first leg date with that country's biggest club Al Hilal. CAPS have already revised their local premier league aspirations in the light of the massive departure of players.

The positive impact of the loss of the eight players to the local premier league could become good news for the players. It will enhance their chances of further development. Billiart has already impressed Ajax Amsterdam during a youth tournament that he was part of during his trial stint which took him to Amsterdam in Holland. It could be just a matter of time before he finds himself playing European football if he impresses at the Ikamva based club in Cape Town.
