Epac FC have backtracked on their K10 million (about $25 000) price tag for striker Ishmael Thindwa who is close to completing a move to Zimbabwe’s Caps United.
Epac general secretary Roy Mdechi said Thindwa and his Epac teammate Tsanzo Dalio are expected to accompany Caps when they participate in the Zambezi Challenge Cup at Kamuzu Stadium this weekend.
“Caps seem impressed by them, but they mentioned that the players’ fitness levels were low. As for the transfer fee, I do not think it would go up to that [K10 million].
“That figure was mentioned to put off local suitors. We do not want to stand in his way to professional football. This guy has served us loyally for three years and it is our wish to help him realise his dream,” Mdechi said.
Caps head coach Taurai Mangwiro told Zimbabwe’s weekly Daily News over the weekend that he was impressed by the duo but still needs “a bit of time” to assess them before making a final decision.
“They are still here for assessment and could be in Harare for another week or so depending on the programme that we will be working on. They have been doing fairly well at training and chances of signing them are evenly balanced,” reads www.dailynews.co.zw.
