More woes for CAPS United



It seems that it’s pouring for CAPS United at present.

First their coach was banned for life for his involvement in the Asiagate scandal before former director Farai Jere quit the team after a series of poor results.

Now they are faced with the possibility of paying their former coach Sean Connor US $90 000 for allegedly unlawfully dismissing him in August this year, when his contract had a year and some months to run.

The Irish-born coach took the matter to arbitration for them to help him get his money from the Harare-based club.

The coach had a contract with CAPS United which had an agreement of US $4,000 a month in basic salary, before a US $400 win bonus per game. When they terminated his contract, Connor reportedly asked CAPS to pay him US $122,000 or he would take the matter further to the centre for arbitration, which he did.

This week, the Commercial Arbitration Centre passed a judgement which stipulates that in terms of the law, Connor was on a fixed term contract of two years with the provision that this contract would be renewed after twelve months.

The Arbitration says such a contract provides that the relevant notice period for a two-year fixed term contract shall be three months. In this regard, the 30-day notice clause in the claimant’s contract fails to meet the minimum requirements of the law so they have to pay the client the supposed money.

Asked on whether they will pay Connor his money, CAPS co-director Twine Phiri said they offered him US $15 000 and that’s what they are prepared to pay.
