Highlanders fans through their facebook page, Highlanders FC have lodged a vote of no confidence to the current Highlanders chairman, Peter Dube. This follows a series of disappointment by the team which has seen the then coach, Mafu shown the exit door.
Highlanders lost their first game under the tutelage of Amini Soma Phiri to Harare City by 1 goal to nil, a result which did not go down well with the Higlanders faithfulls who felt Peter Dube was the cause of the beleaguered Bulawayo giants.
Here is the letter to Highlanders Chairman
Dear Honourable Peter Dube.
It is not a secret anymore that you are a visionless leader. Highlanders FCis too big for you sir.
It is absolutely impossible to match our team’s expectations when the most fundamental principles of building the performance of the team are grossely ignored.
Nothing is more embarrassing than to see new players who have never been involved in any successful experience in Zimbabwean football being part of the team that has winning objectives like Highlanders.
It is well known that for a team of Highlanders calibre to succeed in local competitions it is imperative that a steady squad has been prepared in a minimum period of 2-3 years.
There’s no exception from this strict requirement. Continuity of preparations and consistency of approach and selection of (quality players with the team culture and potential to bring silverware only) is a PRE-CONDITION of any big teams programme.
Hon Dube without any form of advanced youth development, Highlanders isn’t among the best anymore. Why did you hire Mafu and fire him before the expiry of his contract? Do you think Amin Soma Phiri is better than Mafu?
Something drastic must be done to save Highlanders. The ship is sinking baba “enough is enough.
