Local football fans have called on the Highlanders executive to appoint Amini Soma Phiri and Cosmas Zulu on a substantive after they helped Bosso end the 2015 season well.
The pair were handed the mandate to lead Highlanders till the end of season after Bongani Mafu was fired. Highlanders finished the league season in 6th place and also won the Netone Easycall Cup beating Chicken Inn in the final.
However the Highlanders executive has other ideas and have already set their eyes on a foreign head coach something that has been questioned by fans.
Commenting on our Facebook page fans questioned the executive suggesting Amini Soma Phiri deserved to be given a chance based on what he had achieved :
Philasande Mandla Malinga wrote Bosso shld look at what Amin has done, that is from the Number of matches he has been in charge, how many did he win, lose or draw. From the look of things, yes he qualifies to be head coach.
Others like Sikhumbuzo Madonko suggested that the excutive needed to swallow their pride saying Firstly, changing a winning coach is all about arrogance. Accept that Bosso has been a pale shadow of itself, and Thayne Amin has breathed new life into our team. Let us not tempt fate where none is needed. If the mere presence of Amin is what inspires the boys to bring the best out of them, then let it be. Don’t forget that Zimbabwe already has a history of foreign coaches, but none have ever given us the much sought after silverware. Bosso for life.
Some felt a foreign head coach would just be expensive with Marshall Mike posting :we dont afford these foreign coaches. They shd jus gv Amin a chance

Obrien G Dube :Give him the job. He knows Highlanders better than any foreign coach. The worst that u can do for him is to give him the Ass/Coach post
