The current Highlanders coach Mandla Mpofu said he is unmoved by rumours doing the rounds that Highlanders is about to hire a Dutch Coach. Speaking to the Chronicle yesterday Mandla said he is not bothered with Highlanders engaging another coach. He also set the record straight about the rumours saying he left iBosso.
I don’t know the source of the message doing the rounds that I left the club. Those are lies and as it is I’m concentrating on my job and preparing for the important game on Wednesday against Bulawayo Chiefs.
I do not bother myself with other issues (hiring of De Jongh) that I can’t control. I’m simply channeling all my energy on delivering, getting the team out of the danger zone. We’ve to give our best to make sure that we turn the good displays that we’ve been exhibiting into wins.
In the time he has been with the team since Madinda Ndlovu left in June, the 10 games he was in charge, Mpofu has collected 11 points from two wins, five draws and three defeats.
