Wadi joins CAPS

Snodia Mikiri, Sports Reporter

FORWARD Ishmael Wadi has dumped Harare City for CAPS United on a two-year deal.

Wadi had a good season with the Sunshine Boys in 2019 and finished as the club’s topscorer.

Wadi said CAPS are ambitious and that has motivated him to cross the floor.

“I have joined CAPS United.


‘It was not easy coming to make up my mind and join them. Their ambitions motivated me. They have big dreams and that is the kind of a team that I would like to be associated with.

“I want to do better than I did last season and I wanted a club that will help me achieve that and CAPS were a better match,” said Wadi.

Wadi’s departure comes as a huge blow to the Lloyd Chitembwe-coached since he has been their source of goals.

City have also lost Tatenda Tumba to the same team and Takudzwa Chimwemwe who moved to Zambia.

Wadi said he has been always a CAPS fan and it was easy for him to change allegiance.

“I grew up supporting CAPS. I have been their fan from birth. Getting to play for them is like a dream come true.

“When the offer came I didn’t hesitate; I was the proudest player alive. I was certain I would not regret this decision.

“I am happy with the move and I am expecting a great 2020 season,” he added.
