Kaindu talks tough


Highlanders new head coach Kelvin Kaindu says his main thrust is to bring back the glory of the club and win the 2012 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League championship in his first season with the Bulawayo football giants.

Kaindu arrived in the country on Monday evening and yesterday started working out with the team at Milton High School.

The Zambian national, who played as a striker for Bosso in 1997, said he was also looking at winning all the 2012 silverware, but pointed out that would definitely need concerted efforts from all the stakeholders in the team to achieve that feat.

My first aim is to win the league and God being on our side, we will sweep all the silverware. There is a slight difference between the Highlanders that I played for way back in 1997. We have not been performing well.

Those are facts and not opinions, but I hope this is going to change, not just because I am here, it will be a collective effort, Kaindu said.

The coach, who recently attained an FA International Coaching Licence and went through a two-week coaching attachment at English Championship outfit Reading, courtesy of former Highlanders chairman Wyatt Mpofu, said although he was yet to meet the players, he was happy with the list given to him and was certain he had championship-winning material.
