HARARE - Often caught at the centre of controversy in his short CAPS United career, Ronald Pfumibidzai looks back at his Makepekepe stays and feels he could have done other things differently.
Pfumbidzai had a fairly decent game in his last outing for the Harare giants on Saturday in which he hit the cross bar direct from a corner kick as the Green Machine played out a goalless draw against Harare City at Rufaro Stadium on Saturday.
It was the Chitungwiza-based player’s last outing for CAPS as he now embarks on a new journey with Danish top-flight side Hobro IK.
Pfumbidzayi leaves behind mixed emotions from his time with the Green Machine.
He rose to become a fan favourite following an inspirational debut season for the Green Machine when he signed from Eastern Region Division One side Hippo Valley at the start of the 2013.
But things turned sour at the height of financial constraints that hit the Harare giants with Twine Phiri at the helm.
United fans were left reeling as turmoil engulfed the Green Machine camp with players boycotting training and games regularly.
Many felt the Zimbabwe Under-23 left back was the ring leader in the player revolts, inciting his teammates to down their boots.
Pfumbidzayi was the fall guy after most of these strikes as he was accused of being a bad influence on his teammates.
Now on his way to Denmark, the left back hopes to start a new chapter in career and leaves CAPS without any ill feelings.
“I just say to say to the United players stay strong and keep fighting because you never know who is watching you,” he said.
The 20-year-old hopes fans will remember him for all the good memories he shared with the green army.
“I want to thank all the CAPS fans. They always stood by me always. I will miss them a lot. I just wish that my team can regroup and go on and mount a serious title challenge,” he said.
“I had my mistakes but life goes on. It’s all the past now.”
