Super’s days at Bosso to end


BEKITHEMBA “Super” Ndlovu’s dance with Highlanders could finally come to end following the return of the head coach Kelvin Kaindu who started training with the club last Wednesday.

The former Bosso assistant coach’s contract was not renewed at the end of the year and was replaced by Mark Mathe, but his presence during the Highlanders preseason training sessions had raised eye-brows.

Club chairman Peter Dube had said Ndlovu was doing an official handover/take over to the new assistants Mathe and goalkeepers’ coach Peter “Oxo” Nkomo.

Soon after a morning practice session at Luveve Stadium, which Ndlovu also attended, Kaindu yesterday said that transition is now over.

“It was going to be difficult during my absence for the new assistant coaches and what Super has been doing is a handover. But that transition is over now. I have handed in a report to the Bosso executive. I handed in the report yesterday (Friday), but I am not the one to say that he will no longer be with us,” he said.

Kaindu immediately held an informal meeting with his lieutenants Mathe, Nkomo and fitness trainer Majaha Ndlovu, which Super also attended.

At last Sunday’s annual general meeting, Dube had told club members that Ndlovu’s stay at Bosso will stretch up to the end of the month.

“He (Ndlovu) will have finished his handover at the end of the month. Once in a while he will assist at the club and people should not be surprised when they see him because he is always be a Bosso son,” Dube said.

Kaindu had hoped to retain Ndlovu, whom he left in charge of Highlanders last year at the final stages of the league when winning the league title looked imminent and Bosso went on to embarrassingly lose 4-0 to Harare City at the penultimate stage of the league.

Bosso then surrendered the league title to perennial nemesis Dynamos on goal difference.

Meanwhile, Kaindu yesterday was happy at the prospects having Warriors’ sensation Kudakwashe Mahachi, who is reportedly set to join Highlanders on loan from South African side Mamelodi Sundowns.

Reports say Mahachi can only join Sundowns in June and will be on loan to Highlanders.

“I am not sure if any deal has been done on Mahachi. I only heard that he has changed his social network Facebook account profile to Highlanders. But it will be good for Highlanders as he will add depth, but he will only be here for about four or five months and what we can do is to help him adapt to the new challenge in South Africa,” Kaindu said.

Bosso await goalkeeper Munyaradzi Diya and utility player Milton Ncube from South Africa while Peter “Rio” Moyo has been linked to South Afican side AmaZulu.
