Although the details are still sketch by the time of publishing, Sportbrief can exclusively reveal that Richard Addai from Ghana and Abasirim Chidiebere have signed two year long contracts each.
The duo has been under going trial stints with Makepekepe since mid May.
“The two have been signed and everything has been agreed. We are now in the process of acquiring their work permits from the home affairs department,”said a source withing the club’s ranks who refused to give further details.
This publication is however still to establish if the newly acquired strikers will play when United travel to Tunisia for the reverse tie against Al Ahli Tripoli in two weeks.
More pressure to sharpen the strike force was pilling on coach Lloyd Chitembwe after succumbing twice in the CAF Champions League jungle. Makepekepe lost 2-0 to Zamaleck, won 2-1 at home against USM Alger and where humbled by a 4-2 defeat by Tripoli, collecting only 3 points from a possible 9.
The most likely situation is that CAPS United will deregister some of their players to accommodate the new ones in the local Premier Soccer League.
According to information from www.transfermarket.com, Addai is 30 years old and Chidiebere is 25. Both players have experience on continental football as they have so far plied their trades in different nations and participated in various CAF games.
Zambian Felix Sunzu, brother to star Stopila Sunzu is also still under assessment at CAPS.
Meanwhile, United will host Bantu Rovers on Tuesday to fulfill their PSL Match day 8.
