Highlanders get new head coach

Highlanders have fired head coach Bongani Mafu together with his assistants Mandla Mpofu and Peter Oxo Nkomo.

The club also parted ways with team manager Netsai Moyo.

Bosso chairman Peter Dube says veteran Cosmas Zulu, Amini Soma Phiri and Melusi Sibanda have since took over  as head coach, first assistant and second assistant respectively.

Mafu departs the club after a difficult season for Highlanders that has seen them 10th spot on the Premier League table with only nine matches to go. Pressure had been at an all-time high for the Highlanders executive to fire Mafu after losing three leagues games in a row.

Mafu said he was grateful to have been given the opportunity to lead the club saying he had learnt a lot and was grateful for the chance he was given to coach Highlanders

Psoting on his facebook account Mafu said, Personally I want to thank the Highlanders executive for entrusting me with such a big job on the domestic scene.

I leave Highlanders not a bitter man,but a man who learnt a lot in my short stint. I am still young and learning. To the supporters, I call upon them to fully rally behind a great team and all its systems .
