Castle Lager Premier League side ZPC Kariba are exploring the option of hiring Caps United coach Mark Harrison to replace Saul Chaminuka who is serving suspension but is likely to be expelled.
Harrison has made it clear he is ready to leave the former champions as the Harare giants’ financial strife continues unabated. Caps are failing to pay their players and technical staff and already striker Rodrick Mutuma has stopped training with the team over failure to pay.
Yesterday sources indicated ZPC Kariba officials had met Harrison and the two parties agreed on a deal which can only be completed once the Kariba side fire Chaminuka who is under suspension after “in-house problems”, according to club management.
“ZPC have already spoken with Harrison but they cannot hire him at the moment because they still have Saul Chaminuka,” said the source.
“They need to cut ties with Chaminuka first, but they have already agreed terms with Harrison.”
Yesterday Harrison held a training session with Caps ahead of their match against Chapungu at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.
He also held a brief meeting with Caps chief executive officer Joe Makuvire before the session began. The coach has been quoted several times complaining about the inaccessibility of the team management as he faced eviction from his lodgings whose rentals are Caps’ responsibility.
Caps have been blowing hot and cold so far this term and Harrison has attributed the inconsistency to financial problems the team faces.
Yesterday they had all their players at training except for Mutuma, Hardlife Zvirekwi who is with the national team and Ronald Pfumbidzai who is on trials in Denmark.
Makuvire yesterday said Mutuma would return to training, but it is rumoured the player is already weighing the option of joining Highlanders despite a year and a half left on his current deal at Caps. — Staff Writer.
