HIGHLANDERS coach Kelvin Kaindu’s future has now become uncertain following Sunday’s 3-1 home league defeat by ZPC Kariba.
The result saw the Bulawayo giants further sliding one place down the standings to fourth and if Hwange beat Bantu Rovers on Monday, Highlanders will drop again to fifth spot.
Ugly scenes characterised the loss to ZPC Kariba as fans pelted players and technical teams of both clubs after the match.
Most fans called for Kaindu’s resignation.
“I understand people are angry and you cannot blame them. It becomes sad when the team fails to win. It is just rumours that I have quit. I am still the head coach,” Kaindu said.
The Zambian mentor was expected to meet the executive for their Monday evenings meetings. The outcome of the meeting is eagerly awaited as he could be given the boot.
Highlanders chief executive officer Ndumiso Gumede said they have not yet made a determination on the coach’s future.
“We are going to meet the coach as the executive on Monday evening and let us just wait for that meeting and after then we will say something. Right now we will not comment on the coach’s future until after our meeting,” Gumede said.
Highlanders face what could be another stern test in their next league match against equally under-pressure Caps United in Harare.
