CAPS United coach Taurai Mangwiro has apologised for presiding over the clubs’ 6-0 mauling by FC Platinum in the ZNA Charity Shield final.
It was United’s worst ever defeat of their 41-year top-flight football history.
Zambian forward Obrey Chirwa struck a brace for the platinum miners while Tarisai Rukanda and Walter Musona weighed in with a goal each as Caps United defender George Nyirenda scored an own goal.
It was a bad day in office for Caps who finished the match with eight men after Nyirenda, Hardlife Zvirekwi and David Chipala were red-carded.
Mangwiro is still to come to terms with the routing which he partly blames on referee Rugare Kusosa.
“All I can say is I am sorry to the Caps United family for such kind of result. It is a disgrace to all of us,” Mangwiro said.
“No one wants a result like this. Things turned out in a bad way and we never expected this.
“I would not want to talk about the referee but I feel he spoiled what started as a good afternoon for us. I do not want to end up looking like I am giving excuses.”
The result was also FC Platinum`s biggest ever win since their debut PSL season in 2011.
