QUALIFYING into the lucrative CAF Champions League has inspired CAPS United left-back Ronald Pfumbidzai to be hungry for more success in the prestigious tournament.
The 2016 Soccer Star of the Year finalist did not take part in the two matches against the former African champions TP Mazembe of DRC after sustaining a knee injury during the CAF Champions League victory over Lioli of Lesotho.
In addition, he missed the 3-1 victory over old enemy Dynamos in the Zimbabwe National Army Charities semi-final.
Pfumbidzai told H-Metro that Makepekepe should not just be content with qualifying but should instead go all out and fight for glory.
“It was a world class match and I give credit to teamwork because it has contributed a lot in our successes.
“Ever since I started playing for CAPS United, we have never qualified for the group stages and I believe this is a positive sign that we are going somewhere.
“We should not relax thinking that we have made it but we need to work harder and also continue with unite, I know we will go far,” he said.
“We have made history as Makepekepe under coach Lloyd Chitembwe and all thanks to his perseverance.
“We could have not made it without him. At first it was the league and now we have progressed to the mini league of the CAF Champions League.
“I think his deeper understanding of how football is run has been clearly revealed by our performances.”
