Zimbabwe Caps United have released TsanzoDalio months after his transfer from Epac FC of Lilongwe seemed done and dusted.
The combative midfielder returns home due to Caps’ exhaustion of a three-man quota of foreigners, Epac general secretary Roy Mdechi claimed on Saturday.
Caps have in their books Ishmael Thindwa, who was expected to leave for the Harare side yesterday, Gerald Phiri Junior and a Zambian.
Caps have since paid K2 million out of K5 million for Thindwa, but did not pay a tambala of Dalio’s K2 million fee Epac offered.
“They still want to take him [Dalio] on board, but now they have cash flow problems. They might recall him in June, buy him and loan him out as their technical panel still values him,” said Mdechi.
Thindwa and Dalio underwent trials in Zimbabwe which continued during Caps participation in the Zambezi Soccer Challenge at Kamuzu Stadium, where Dalio got injured in the first match against Silver Strikers.
“They returned with Dalio to Zimbabwe as part of our trials’ agreement was that they would meet medical expenses during the trials,” said Mdechi.
