Zimbabwean giants Caps United have opted to extend the contract of captain Hardlife Zvirekwi, which includes a coach training role.

It has been confirmed that the 32-year-old has been given a one-year extension after his previous deal expired in December 2018.

Zvirekwi captioned world headlines when he lost part of his arm during near-fatal car crash early 2018.

Club president Farai Jere explained the thinking behind the contract-extension, saying Zvirekwi is key to Green Machine’s dressing room.

“The coach said he did not have any issues with Hardy playing for the team this season because he was impressed by the way he led the boys on the field on his return and also the way he has a lot of passion for the club,’’ Jere said to The Herald.

“We then agreed with the coach that Hardy should be given another run because the coach believes his experience will come in handy in a team that,” Jere concluded.

United will continue its long preparations towards the start of the new season in March.
