Bun­jira calls on Caps fans to come in num­bers

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo

CAPS United le­gend Alois Bun­jira has called on the Green Ma­chine fans to throng the Na­tional Sports Sta­dium and rally be­hind the boys as they take on crest­fallen Dy­namos to­mor­row af­ter­noon.

“We are al­most there,” said Bun­jira in an emo­tional Face­book post, which can in­deed in­voke me­mories of the Charles Mh­lauri era which saw Caps United be­com­ing al­most in­vin­ci­ble.

Caps United en­joy a two-point lead at the top with just four games re­main­ing.

In an in­spi­ra­tional mes­sage, the re­tired drib­bling wizard said Caps United needed ev­ery sup­port and noise that it can get from its fol­low­ers.

“This is one game we need to out­num­ber the Dy­namos fans. Caps United has mil­lions of fans but we av­er­age 5 000 per game, at this mo­ment we need ev­ery Caps United fan to come to the sta­dium,” wrote Bun­jira.

The ri­valry be­tween the two sides need not to be told, it is fierce, it is mean, it’s un­ri­valled and it’s usu­ally full of thrills and in­deed spills.

Makepekepe are in a dog eat dog sit­u­a­tion with cash rich Zvishavane-based FC Plat­inum who had con­trol of the pro­ceed­ings un­til one Moses Chunga, the Harare City coach, came along. He handed them not only a 1-2 loss but a red card as well — shown to for­mer Tsholot­sho player Ger­ald Tak­wara.

High­landers, ruled out of the race by many af­ter that cruel en­try into the sec­ond half of the sea­son, are third and three points be­hind the Lloyd Chitem­bwe-coached Harare side.

Caps’ destiny is cer­tainly in their own hands now; win their games and never worry about how the other two ri­vals per­form.

It is that which makes Bun­jira be­lieve this in­deed is their year. Unedited Bun­jira Face­book post. “We play Dy­namos this com­ing Sun­day. This is one of our big­gest days as Caps United in a long time. We get into this game at this time of the year as log lead­ers and ti­tle con­tenders, un­like the other years. This is one hur­dle we must over­leap. This is one game we need all our fans to come to the sta­dium to sup­port the team. This is one game we need to out­num­ber the Dy­namos fans. Caps United has mil­lions of fans but we only av­er­age 5 000 fans per home game. Very bad. At this mo­ment we need ev­ery Caps United fan to come to the sta­dium. All those Face­book fans. All those So­cial Me­dia fans. All those of­fice fans. All those pub fans. All those arm­chair fans. All those lady fans who have never been to the sta­dium. We sin­cerely call upon all those fans to throng the Na­tional Sports Sta­dium and join the reg­u­lars in sup­port­ing the boys. We are so close. At the be­gin­ning of the sea­son we de­clared that 2016 is our year. Let us all push in that di­rec­tion. Let us out­num­ber the DeMbare fans and make more noise and cheers. The boys need that. We are so close to the promised land. Wher­ever you maybe, from around Zim­babwe or neigh­bour­ing coun­tries, please make an ef­fort to come to the sta­dium and make your voice heard. We want this. We need this. We are al­most there. We all know that the Dy­namos fans would rather have a dif­fer­ent team win the league and they will come in num­bers to push their team to throw in the span­ners. Let us counter that on Sun­day. In the Green Ma­chine I trust. Do you? Let us paint the Na­tional Sports Sta­dium green.”
