In an interview with H-Metro, Zvirekwi implored fans to derive satisfaction from the fact that at least the club finished the season in third place. He said:
I’m deeply sorry to our fans for disappointing them. However, they should not lose hope because the third position is not that bad and it is not every time that a team comes out on top.
As players, we were also disappointed by the outcome so it’s also difficult to comfort our fans because us as players we are also hurt for not winning the championship.
Caps United was in pole position to land the title with only two games remaining as they led FC Platinum by a single point while Chicken Inn was further behind.
However, a 3-1 loss to Ngezi Platinum Stars and 1-0 reverse to the eventual champions on the final day of the season pushed Makepekepe down to third.
