IF there is one coach who would be under pressure this season in the Premier Soccer League, it’s Highlanders boss Kelvin Kaindu.
Just 24 hours after signing highly-rated Warriors defender Felix Chindungwe from Chicken Inn, Highlanders were due to tie up another deal with CAPS United midfielder Rahman Kutsanzira last night.
Kutsanzira has sought clearance from the Harare giants and yesterday trained twice with Highlanders in Bulawayo, signalling his intention of returning to the team that gave him fame before he crossed the Shangani River in search of the greenback.
Kutsanzira was spotted training with his former club at White City Stadium yesterday.
A source close to the player told Southern Eye Sport that Kutsanzira’s return to his former paymasters looks almost done as he has dumped Caps United and travelled to Bulawayo to train with Bosso.
“Rahman Kutsanzira was training with Highlanders at White City today (yesterday) and chances are high that he might be joining the club,” the source said.
Bosso treasurer and negotiator in the transfer window Jerry Sibanda tried to play things safe yesterday as the player has not been cleared by Caps United.
“He is just training with the team. He has not signed any contract with the club. There is nothing yet,” Sibanda said.
Caps United have confirmed that Kutsanzira, who has a running contract with the club, has requested for a clearance to join another club.
Kutsanzira joined Caps United from Highlanders in 2012 and has been making efforts to retrace his footsteps to the Bulawayo football giants, claiming that he was not being paid at the Green Machine.
Should he make the grade he will join Chindungwe, Joel Ngodzo, Charles Sibanda, Welcome Ndiweni, Khumbulani Banda and Valentine Ndaba at the black and white giants.
Canadian players Phillippe Barriault and Jean-Felix Lemieux are also at the club while former skipper Zephania Ngodzo is also hoping to earn contract.
