Kapini not moved

Former Zimbabwe national team skipper, Tapuwa Kapini, has apparently recovered from the setback he suffered about two weeks ago, when his own team’s fans pelted him with missiles.

The Amazulu goalkeeper and captain was turned on by some of the club’s unruly fans, following his side’s 2-0 loss to provincial rivals, Maritzburg United, in a KwaZulu Natal derby.

Amazulu team manager Japhet Zwane said early this week that the the 27-year-old, who had conceded another seven goals when Usuthu were walloped 7-1 by championship contenders, Mamelodi Sundowns, had fully recovered from the traumatic experience.

“Yes, Kapini has been training hard and has put behind what happened to him. But when he will be thrown into the deep end again remains the prerogative of the coach,” said Zwane. “All I can say for now is that he is okay and has been in a positive mind. He has fully recovered and is ready to fight for the team again.”

Amazulu officials have already engaged the club’s supporters over their ill-treatment of the Zimbabwean goalkeeper, who joined the Durban side on a R1 million contract from Platinum Stars early last season and put on a tremendous show that saved the club from relegation.

“We made sure our supporters got to know that the way they treated him was something that could not happen again,” added Zwane.
