CAPS United defender Hardlife Zvirekwi has started training less than a month after his hand was amputated from the wrist following an accident that threatened his career. He took part on some light training at the Zifa Village yesterday as Caps United prepared for their clash against Herentals.
CAPS United team doctor Nicholas Munyonga said if Zvirekwi decides to play he would have to do it without the artificial hand as it was not allowed on the field of play.
