Striker Quincy Antipas, who was out with an injury, and former Eiffel Wildcats defender, Martin Goremusandu, were registered to take part in the Champions League. The two did not travel to Burundi for the first leg two weeks ago.

CAPS’ chaotic handling of the trip meant that they travelled to Bujumbura with only one substitute. However, they defied all odds and held Inter Stars to a commendable 3-3 draw.

CAPS’ director of coaching Charles Mhlauri said at the weekend that he would use the 14 players he has for the remainder of the matches in the Champions League.

“Quincy (Antipas) and Martin (Goremusandu) will join the rest of the team this week. It’s unfortunate some people decided to register non-existent players at the expense of players we already have.

“Luckily the two were registered and they are available to play for us. I think we will make it with the 14 players we have at the moment. If we proceed to the mini-league phase, then we will have an opportunity to add even more players.

“I will be directly in charge of the registering of players. We cannot afford the bungling that has affected us like this,” said Mhlauri.

The CAPS coach also commented on reports that CAPS used unregistered players saying as far as they were concerned everything had been done above board.

He said there was a communication breakdown between the Zimbabwe and Malawi football authorities resulting in the problem, which involves two Malawian players. – ZimOnline
