Caps United president Farai Jere’s dream of winning the CAF Champions League is still alive and believes after beating five-time champions TP Mazembe on the away goal rule, Makepekepe can now go all the way and possibly even win the tournament.
The 2016 Premier Soccer League champions showed great determination and team spirit, defied critics and skeptics by writing their own history books when they eliminated the much fancied TP Mazembe from the CAF Champions League and qualifying for the lucrative group stages of the tournament for the first time.
Jere said it was down to self-belief, good planning and unity of purpose that the club has achieved the feat.
A spirited nil-all draw at the National Sports Stadium and a priceless away goal scored by Abbas Amidu in the reverse fixture in the Democratic Republic of Congo last week ensured the team qualified at the expense of Mazembe.
Last season’s top goal-scorer veteran striker Leonard Tsipa with 12 strikes and most loyal player for his close to two decades as a Makepekepe player who missed the win because he was not registered, is optimistic they can go all the way to win the CAF Champions League.
There were wild celebrations after the referee blew the final whistle as players and supporters and club officials came together to celebrate the feat and its significance.
