All is not well: Kaindu

Highlanders coach Kelvin Kaindu has admitted that the dropping of somewhat easy points by his side has thrown the Bulawayo giants into a mini crisis.


“Everything is not well in the team; we are losing the games we should have easily won and believe you me, these kinds of results will cost us big time at the end of the season. We need to maintain a winning momentum and stay focused,” said the Zambian-born former Bosso hit man, who made a good start to coaching the former PSL champions last season.

He said Bosso were working on improving their performance to begin mounting a strong challenge for the league crown they dominated with four titles on the trot between 1998 and 2002.

Kaindu expressed total shock at his side’s 0-1 away loss to minnows Black Mambas.

“One of the urgent problems I am trying to address is our blunt strike-force, which has failed to score regularly,” said the coach. “Highlanders is a big team with a lot at stake. Milton Ncube has done well to be our top goal scorer so far, but he only has six league goals in 19 matches and that is unacceptable for a big club like us. All the players in the team must take scoring responsibility, especially our other strikers.”

Should they get their act together, Bosso were still in the running for the championship they last won under Kaindu’s former teammate, Methembe Ndlovu in 2006.

“The race is still wide open and we are not much worried about being counted out so soon. In football, nothing is impossible and we can find ourselves in a better position, or even be crowned league champions at the end of the season,” he added.
