Highlanders FC lost a league game to Motor Action 2-3 at BF, over the weekend. So ordinary were Bosso that they came back twice and did not have enough time to do that the 3rd time. They may have succumbed to the 4th in any case.
Madinda Ndlovu’s Black Mambas stung Douglas Warriors, beating them 3-0 over the weekend to collect 3 valuable points. Douglas Warriors were no match to the dangerous Mambas who are collecting points at will.
Madinda’s men were victorious over Victoria FC the previous week, posting a 2-0 win. The team has now collected 7 out 12 points not so bad for a team still getting to know their coach better.
Bosso’s continued eating of humble pies will be satisfied that they still have 18 games to play. The Egyptian coach who is fasting in the mon th of Ramadan, believes they will turn the corner, and is hoping to meet the executive to find ways to improve the team.
Usually when things do not go right and the Executive want to meet for a way forward, it is advisable to pack your bags. Fathi conceded he was not a magician to The Chronicle. He has no clue the team won the League several times without magicians.
The scenario sees the rise and rise of Madinda Ndlovu, and the fall and fall of the Mighty Bosso Tshilamoya, who parted ways with the charismatic Ndlovu before Fathi came in. It will be easy for me to say I told you Bosso needs Madinda, but it may be better to say that Madinda doesn’t need Bosso.
Coaches need a fair platform to perform and their requirements should be met without question. Respect of foreign coaches who earn more and are afforded better conditions to operate does not level the coaching ground for locals.
The locals coaches must be given enough respect, time and resources and maybe the executive must be Egyptian for a change. Meanwhile, Dynamos of Elvis Chuchu Chiweshe, recorded their Africa Champion’s first mini-league win when they beat Entente Setif of Algeria. Dembare are said to have played in a packed stadium, while Bosso recorded a crowd countable by a passing jet-fighter.
Who do you think must lead Highlanders executive?
