Highlanders have officially announced the departure of their coach Madinda Ndlovu.

Ndlovu tendered in his resignation this morning and is heading to Botswana where he will join top-flight club Gaborone United.

Here is a statement by Highlanders:

The Club wishes to inform its members, fans, stakeholders, partners and sponsors that our Technical Manager, Mr Madinda Ndlovu has stepped down from his position at the Club.

Mr Ndlovu’s final working day will be the 30TH of June 2019.

Our Club thanks him for the sterling work he has done since his appointment on the 1st of January 2018.  We are particularly thankful that the work he has done in assembling a predominately young and competitive squad will see the club grow in strength and achieve many great and memorable accolades now and in the near future.

We are pleased that he leaves behind a rejuvenated institutional philosophy that has been inculcated in the playing and coaching staff and that his departure is amicable with all the hallmarks of a mature and caring son of the Club.

In the interim, we appeal for calm within the vast stakeholder fraternity of our great club as we re-organise the coaching roles which will be announced promptly.

As he leaves to take up his next and immediate challenge we wish the very best of luck and success.
