Highlanders Football Club, one of Bulawayo’s football giants, has announced plans to build a new-look technical team to support their recently appointed head coach, Kelvin Kaindu, in preparation for the 2024 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) season.
In an official statement released this Saturday, Highlanders revealed their commitment to assembling a formidable technical bench aimed at constructing a competitive squad capable of challenging for top honors in the upcoming season. The announcement comes in the wake of Kelvin Kaindu’s appointment as head coach, following the departure of Portuguese manager Baltemar Brito earlier this month.
Despite a remarkable run of 19 league matches without defeat, Highlanders’ highly anticipated quest to return to glory eventually faltered as the team began to encounter setbacks. The 2023 PSL campaign concluded with Highlanders securing a fifth-place finish, accumulating a total of 55 points, while Ngezi Platinum Stars clinched the league title for the first time.
Kelvin Kaindu’s return to Highlanders holds particular significance, given his history with the club. The Zambian expatriate previously played for Highlanders in 1997 before taking charge of the club’s dugout from 2012 to 2014.
The club’s decision to revamp its technical team underscores the commitment of Highlanders to reestablish themselves as a dominant force in Zimbabwean football. The forthcoming 2024 PSL season promises exciting changes for the Bulawayo giants as they prepare to rekindle their championship aspirations under the leadership of Kelvin Kaindu.
Highlanders supporters and football enthusiasts alike will eagerly await further updates on the composition of the new technical team and the strategies in place to propel the club back to the pinnacle of Zimbabwean football.
