Caps United striker, Ishmael Wadi revealed he is happy at the Harare giants, despite recent reports claiming he re-joined city rivals, Harare City.
The former Bulawayo City forward told SlyMediaNews that he was not leaving the Green Machine.
“I am still a Caps United player and I am very happy here,” he said.
“I think this (Caps United) is the last team I will play for here in Zimbabwe.”
Asked whether he was set for an international move, Wadi neither denied nor agreed, however he said he would comment only if there were any concrete offers from foreign clubs.
Wadi joined the Green Machine from the Sunshine Boys last year. His contract with Makepekepe is set to expire on 31 December 2021.
However, Wadi has not yet kicked a ball donning the Caps United traditional green and white colours as soon after joining the club Premier Soccer League matches were halted due to Covid-19 outbreak.
After the Covid-19 outbreak, government was forced to put in place strict lockdown regulations in an effort to mitigate the virus.
The regulations hence placed football activities on hold since last year.
However, the former Platinum player said chances were high he would renew his contract with Caps United.
“Yes, my contract expires in December this year but I think I will renew it,” said Wadi.
“I love Caps United they have been good to me since joining them. I actually appreciate the team.”
The Harare giants, recently lost some of their key players to their rivals.
Innocent Muchaneka signed for FC Platinum whilst Newman Sianchali joined city rivals Dynamos FC.
Domestic football is set to return after Minister of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation, Kirsty Coventry said permission for all sporting activities would resume once national associations prove they can adhere to the WHO regulations.
She further said associations were required to protect their athletes through regular testing.
