Bulawayo mayor Councillor Solomon Mguni has called for unity within the city’s biggest football club, Highlanders FC.
In a post on his Facebook page, Mguni expressed hope that Bosso will be able to turn around its season after a dismal start in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League. He wrote:
Our hearts bleed for Highlanders Football Club. There can be no Bulawayo without Highlanders FC.
We urge all stakeholders involved in the affairs of Highlanders Bosso Ngenkani to exercise restraint. We must be able to put our heads together for the good of the club.
The team may not have started well this season, but there is always room for improvement. The board, executive, technical bench and players need our support in these difficult times. They will get it right.
Mguni’s remarks follow disgruntlement especially among the Bulawayo football giants’ restive legion of fans.
With no win in 5 games in the 2019 season, Bosso fans are already calling for the sacking of head coach Madinda Ndlovu.
