Highlanders head coach Erol Akbay is set to finally starting work this week after receiving his work permit.
Akbay agreed terms towards the end of last year but has had to wait for his work permit since then. However the Netherlands born coach is expected to arrive in the country tomorrow after his permit was received last week.
His local manager Denford Mutashu confirmed the imminent arrival of Akbay saying, “Erol Akbay jets in on Tuesday to embark on his Highlanders journey.
Amini Soma Phiri and Cosmas Zulu who will assist Akbay have been taking the squad through their pre-season preparation’s ahead of the 2016 league season.
Highlanders have not gone for big names or high profile signings in the transfer window due to a lack of funds and have instead opted to promote junior players.
