ZIMBABWE international goalkeeper Energy Murambadoro is set to return to his former Harare club Caps United following the expiry of his four-month contract at relegated South African side Hellenic.
The Gokwe-born goalminde
r last week told IndependentSport that he is still contracted to the run-away log leaders and will be returning soon after the 2003-04 season curtain comes down this week in South Africa.
“I will return to Caps were I’m still contracted. From then on I will start considering any offers; I would love to play in Europe, preferably in England but will also be interested in playing in South Africa again if a top club approaches me with a good offer,” Murambadoro said.
The Warriors international, who had been linked with a move to English first division outfit Sheffield United, said nothing was concrete on that deal yet.
“Nothing is clear at the moment, but if they come forward I will not close the door on them,” he said.
Murambadoro was one of the few finds of the season in South Africa, having impressed during his short loan spell at Hellenic. He has reportedly attracted the interests of a number of top clubs in the lucrative league.
The 21-year-old goalminder could however not be drawn into revealing the names of the clubs chasing his signature.
Meanwhile, South Africa’s Kick Off magazine reports that praises have been showered for the impressive Warriors keeper.
“I think he is a fantastic player, he is very talented and reads the game well and always gives his best. He may lack experience but it because he is still young and can only get better,” Sipho Ndzuzo, a much travelled midfielder who played alongside Murambadoro at Hellenic, was quoted as saying.
