CAPS take lessons from Downs loss
CAPS United lost their international friendly game against South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns but coach Mkhupali Masuku said that they have learnt a lot from their experience and professional opposition.
He said that the lessons they received will help them rectify their mistakes as they prepare for the league.
“It is good we played a team like Sundowns at this stage. This has really helped us alot and I now know what we are supposed to do to make sure we have a great season ahead of us,” Masuku said.
CAPS United are busy building a strong team for the 2013 season and they have renewed the contract of veteran forward Shingi Kawondera.
Kawondera joined CAPS United last year in July as a free agent and he showed good performances in the team, despite the fact that they finished outside the top eight in 10th.
Club chairman Twine Phiri told superSport.com that they are hoping for a better season and said they had retained all their players who did duty last season, including the vastly experienced Kawondera.
He said they still needed Kawondera’s experience and had plans for him in future programmes.
“We have retained all our players we had last season and that includes Kawondera. We still need his services and there is no way we can let him go. He is an experienced player and we also have plans for him in our future programmes. We had good players who did well for the team last season and that’s why we are keeping them and just adding a few more. We need to have a very strong team this season and all the players are expected to play an important role,” Phiri said.
