CAPS United coach Lloyd Chitembwe will have his contract extended at the end of the season.
Club president Farai Jere revealed this during a press conference in Harare on Thursday.
He said Chitembwe, who had been given a target of a top four finish by the end of the campaign, had already proved his capability.
United believe he can take them to greater heights next season.
The Harare giants are currently on fifth position on the league table with 37 points with five matches left in the campaign.
Speaking during a press conference to introduce new shareholder Tutisani Nhamo in Harare on Thursday, Jere said they were pleased with the performance of the team and revealed they would be signing big names in preparation for next term.
Chitembwe has presided over four games. He has lost one, won two and drawn one. The Harare giants are in fifth position on the league table with 37 points with five matches left in the campaign.
“We now have stability in our technical department,” said Jere.
“We have very high hopes that we will be retaining these guys especially looking at the results they have given us the chances are so high that we will be retaining them.
“Next year we are retaining them and they have started identifying players they want for next season and we have secured some of them and we are still chasing some of the players they want.”
He added; “Come next season we want to challenge for honours, that is our short term target.
“We want to win the league title to find ourselves participating in the Champions League.
“We have already communicated with our coaches and you can tell by the players that they are buying that they are preparing for playing in the champions league.”
The Caps United president said he decided to offer Nhamo a stake in the team because he has always been committed to the team.
“We want to make Caps United the number one brand in Zimbabwe and Africa and how do you do that? We are trying to make it (Caps United) a big thing by bringing in partners like Nhamo.
“When I was looking at this brand and the commitment which he has to the team and his contribution I decided why not bringing him closer and share our vision to make Caps United a bigger brand.
“We will make it big in terms of the brand and the value as we try to increase the assets of this organisation because if you look at Caps United it is a brand so we sat down with the board and talked about vision then I could see that if I work with this guy we could take this club to another level,” said Jere adding that the road to bring stability at Caps United has not been easy.Advertisement

“Caps United was laden with debts and we managed to bring it back onto its feet with a vibrant board and, to be honest with you, the guy who was leading the pack was Thutisani and I sat down with him and said my friend look, how would you feel I give you a shareholding?”
Jere also revealed that there were no returns in running a football club as it was a social responsibility.
He said those who ploughed their money into football were driven by passion and that it was a manifestation of the spirit of giving.
