CAPS United Skipper Chooses Loyalty Over Allures of Other Clubs

CAPS United Skipper Chooses Loyalty Over Allures of Other Clubs

Tonderai Mateyaunga, the captain of CAPS United, has disclosed that he rejected tempting offers from various clubs and decided to remain with the Green Machine.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper attracted interest from multiple teams after his contract with Makepekepe expired at the end of last year. Despite receiving offers from at least three clubs, Mateyaunga opted to stay with CAPS United.

Mateyaunga, a former Dynamos player who was linked with Simba Bhora during the mid-season window last year, cited the love and appreciation he feels at CAPS United as the main reason for his decision. He expressed gratitude to the club’s president, Farai Jere, the coaching staff led by Lloyd Chitembwe, and the supporters for their amazing support.

Reflecting on CAPS United’s performance last season, where they finished eighth with a significant gap from the champions Ngezi Platinum Stars, Mateyaunga highlighted the impact of injuries on their form. He expressed hope that the team can avoid a similar fate in the upcoming 2024 season.

Despite losing Joseph Tulani, one of their best players from the previous season, CAPS United has been careful in the pre-season transfer market, retaining the core of the squad. Nine new players, including highly-rated forward Lot Chiwunga and versatile Wayne Makuva, have joined the team. Mateyaunga praised the new players for quickly adapting to the team’s demands and emphasized the importance of institutional memory with the availability of many players from the previous season.
