Highlanders head coach Madinda Ndlovu says he was impressed with the level of competition posed by his youthful squad after his team finished runners up for the ZNA Charities Shield after going down 2-1 to Dynamos at the National Sports Stadium.
Ndlovu, who was using the tournament to prepare his charges for the upcoming 2018 PSL season in a fortnight, was satisfied with the character displayed by his young team.
Ndlovu told the Chronicle, “Look, it’s just the beginning of the project that we have embarked on as a club. I think for me the project is actually going in line with our plans. As a point of correction, we are not rebuilding Highlanders Football Club.”
The coach felt his team matched their rivals pound for pound but were just unfortunate not to find the equalizing goal.
“I think the boys matched Dynamos in all areas but in a game of football one team has to win and the other has to lose.” said Ndlovu
