FORMER CAPS United chief executive Cuthbert Chitima insists he is taking a sabbatical from football, dismissing claims he is eying a post at Premier Soccer League.
There have been reports that Chitima left the Makepekepe job with a possibility of landing the PSL job as the new chief executive.
The position is current held by Kennedy Ndebele.
“I have decided to take a break from football, like I said before I have to pursue my business which needs my full concentration.
“I don’t know anything about me working for PSL, if that’s the plan, I don’t know. But I haven’t been approached.
“These are just rumours because I would have known,” he said.
Chitima, however, said his departure from the Green Machine camp is not the end of his football journey and, if future allows, he will make a comeback.
“I will come back into the football fraternity but not now.
“For now, my focus is on my new business venture, but I cannot dismiss the idea of coming back in the world of football in future.
“I am passionate about football,” he said.
With Chitima as CEO, CAPS United won the 2016 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League and went on to reach the mini league stage in the CAF Champions League.
