Despite their losses in the pre-season, Caps United coach Lloyd Chitembwe insists they can still win the Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League title.

United have lost two of their preseason tournament matches against Dynamos and Highlanders, but Chitembwe is not concerned.

Instead, Chitembwe thinks the matches gave him a good assessment of his squad before making a forecast for his team in the upcoming season.

He believes his squad is good enough to reclaim the Premier Soccer League title that was wrestled away from them by FC Platinum last season.

“As a coach, sometimes it’s important to be responsible. Any coach at any level would want to win games and winning games would obviously lead to winning the title," he said to the News Day.

"There is no exception, we want to win the games and any team in the league would want to win games.

“In as far as I am concerned, I am sure we have what it takes. We are very competitive; we have the skill and the technique and know-how to worry about our eventual position on the log.

“Some decisions are going to be made based on this game. That was the purpose of this game. The players have to justify why they have to be part of the team.

“This game served its purpose and we will come up with the right decisions.”

Chitembwe’s men also lost 1-0 to a largely inexperienced Dynamos side in the semi-finals of the Zimbabwe National Army Charities Cup a fortnight ago.
