Highlanders head coach Amini Soma Phiri has made stunning revelations of how much he sacrificed for the club during his recent coaching spell.
Phiri took charge of Highlanders till the end of the season after taking over from Bongani Mafu who was fired. Phiri and Cosmas did well to help Bosso finish in 6th place and win the Netone Easycall Cup.
However the stint came at personal cost with Phiri saying his wife denied him sex during his stint.
Phiri told B-Metro ‘My wife and I spent almost two months without sleeping with each as she could not understand why I took up the offer knowing fully well I had a family to feed, I am brave man of strong conviction,I solidered on knowing full well I was doing this for the team I told.
Phiri was apparently only receiving a winning bonus and no salary.
Highlanders have already indicated they will not be offering Phiri the head coach post a decision that has been criticised by some fans who feel he deserves a chance. Highlanders are keen to get a foreign coach and are understood to announce his arrival at the club in early January.
