Highlanders attempt to resolve Soma Phiri and Cosmas Zulu rift

Highlanders have warned both Amini Soma Phiri and Cosmas Zulu that the club will not tolerate their recent clashes.

The pair have not been getting along and Highlanders are keen to put an end to their apparent rift before it destabilises the technical team.

Zulu and Phiri have disagreed on the Highlanders squad among other issues and almost exchanged blows following the Highlanders v Chicken Inn match in the ZNA Charity Shield.

Speaking at the club’s weekly conference club vice chairman Modern Ngwenya said,”We are taking the differences between the two coaches very seriously and that is why we need to find common ground.

Reports suggest the club could fire both coaches if they fail to reach common ground.

Ngwenya also clarified the coaching hierarchy revealing that Soma Phiri reports to the technical manager Erol Akbay and technical director Cosmas Zulu.

Amini and Zulu lead Highlanders to a respectful finish last season and also landed the Netone Easycall Cup but their relationship has now turned sour.
