Highlanders coach Kelvin Kaindu has been offered a two-year contract extension while the club has decided not to renew contracts of his assistant Bekithemba Ndlovu and goalkeeper coach Tembo Chuma.
Kaindu who is currently in his native Zambia on holiday has agreed terms of the new deal and is expected to put pen to paper soon as his current contract expires at the end of this year.
Legendary goalkeeper Peter Nkomo and Mark Mathe have bounced back to replace Chuma and Ndlovu respectively on one-year deals.
Nkomo had left the club at the beginning of 2011 to join FC Platinum while Mathe who worked as an assistant to former coach Mkupali Masuku was relegated to the development side following the arrival of Kaindu at the beginning of last season.
Willard Khumalo has retained his post as manager while Vezigama Dlodlo is the new kit manager.
“The coach wanted to know the people he would be working with and he is happy about the new set-up. We hope this is a new beginning for the Highlanders.
It does not mean that those who we did not renew their contracts did not do a good job but we are just making changes to better the club’s interests,” Dube said.
Kaindu who led Highlanders to successive runners-up finishes in the past season had threatened not to agree to a new deal if he has assistants imposed on him.
