Highlanders coach Mandla Mpofu has professed ignorance on the three-match ultimatum the club gave him last week.
The gaffer and his assistants – Bekithemba Ndlovu and goalkeepers’ trainer Tembo Chuma – were told to get a minimum of six points from the games against Triangle United, Mushowani Stars and Hwange to save their jobs.
But after a goalless draw with Mushowani on Sunday, it’s now impossible to achieve the target since they lost 2-1 to Triangle on Thursday.
Speaking in a post-match interview, Mpofu said he knows nothing about the ultimatum.
“There was no ultimatum or letter given to the coaches, but it was just a meeting between the executive and the coaches where we said, look, let’s go for six points and review after three games,” he said.
Mpofu was appointed the head coach in July after the departure of Madinda Ndlovu.
