Although Rooney was expected to be fully fit in July, it has since been established that he needs to undergo an operation and would the operation be successful, the talented player will take between nine to twelve months to fully recover.
CAPS United team doctor Nicholas Munyonga confirmed the development.
“The injury to Ronald Chitiyo was initially expected to fully heal in six weeks’ time,” said Munyonga.
“This prompted the club to register him as he was expected to be back in the fold early in the season. However, we have since realised that the injury is more complicated than was initially thought.
“He went for a scan and the club is currently working on the modalities to have the player operated on.
“Upon successful operation of the knee, the player (Chitiyo) will need between six and nine months to fully recover.
“Chitiyo has since stopped training with the rest of the squad as he now awaits the club to sort out the modalities for him to get operated.”
Meanwhile Caps United will this weekend clash with Bulawayo giants, Highlanders in a match termed the battle of Zimbabwe 2.
