FORMER Highlanders head coach Kelvin Kaindu could be the next Triangle head coach for the 2015 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season.
A confidant of the Zambian gaffer yesterday said Kaindu was likely to put pen to paper with the Lowveld side he helped survive relegation, when he was roped in as technical advisor after leaving Bosso.
“There are only a few snag, but he (Kaindu) is likely to sign for Triangle anytime soon. He is in Zambia at the moment, but there finer details of the deal that have to be attended to,” the source said.
Kaindu was hired on a short-term contract last year after leaving Bosso and his task was to ensure that Triangle, winners of the One Wallet Cup final, survived the chop from top-flight football.
He was assisting head coach Biggie Zuze, who has since retraced his roots to champions Dynamos where he will be assistant to David Mandigora together with Tonderai Ndiraya while Gift Muzadzi will be the goalkeepers’ coach.
Zuze’s contract in the Lowveld expires today which frees him to move back to Harare. Kaindu was waiting for that before putting pen to paper.
If Kaindu signs, ZPC Kariba could be the biggest losers as Tembo Chuma, their goalkeepers’ coach is a close friend of the Zambian and was likely join him in the Lowveld.
Earlier in the month there were reports Kaindu’s demands were excessive for the Tongaat Hullet-sponsored outfit but the source yesterday said they two parties were now agreeing on some terms.
The Zambian mentor, who spent close to three years at Bosso and recently acquired Uefa B badge, was also linked with a move to Dynamos.
As the coaches merry-go-round continues, Caps United are expected to announce their new coach today, with former Black Rhinos boss Joisten Mathuthu favourite to take over the post left vacant by Taurai Mangwiro, now at Harare City.
Gishon Ntini, formerly with relegated Chiredzi, had been linked to Caps United.
