Highlanders coach Madinda Ndlovu has revealed that the club has hired psycho expects to motivate the players mentally following a string of unconvincing results.

The Bulawayo giants are enduring their worst start to the season in the PSL era, managing only four points after eight games and rooted in the drop zone without a win.

They have failed to convert the chances despite dominating play in most of their games. The frontline has only succeeded to find the target twice, and the last occasion came on Match-day 3 against Harare City.

Speaking to the press on Thursday ahead of the Sunday’s encounter against TelOne, Madinda said:

“We are doing everything we can to try and get the players motivated. We have gotten the professionals who can psych the boys.

“It’s very important at this stage for them to hear a different voice, speaking something, not football.

“You can understand that as human beings, as things unfold, the players can bump into a supporter in the street who can mock and make them feel bad because of the results.

“So we want a voice which can try to lift them up after such incidents.”
