Highlanders coach Erol Akbay says that being a foreign coach comes with a lot of pressure and no wonder the Dynamos gaffer Paulo Jorge Silva is being hit left right and centre.

Addressing the Highlanders press conference today Akbay said, “For a foreign coach it is difficult to work in a foreign land. People will always want what is not normal from you.

“I am also feeling the pressure. But if you are doing well so be it. However, I think Silva is doing his job.

Dynamos  just like Highlanders is a big club and the Dynamos coach is not stupid. He will soon find his rhythm,”said Akbay.

Silva has had an indifferent stay at DeMbare, a club that has so far registered one win from four starts a development that has seen a section of DeMbare fans calling for his ouster.

Last weekend Silva was the man in charge as CAPS United broke a seven Dynamos jinx.
