SOCCER – FORMER Matsapha United coach Saul Chaminuka is on his way to capital city giants Mbabane Highlanders.

The Zimbabwean coach will take over the hot seat left vacant by South African mentor Mlungisi ‘Professor’ Ngubane last month.

According to impeccable sources from both parties, talks are now at an advanced stage and the coach is expected to arrive on Monday to assume his new duties.

A source close to the matter revealed that Chaminuka was the latest coach to be approached by the black and white outfit for the head coach position and after negotiations, was reached a consensus.

“Highlanders tabled an offer for the coach and he was content with it. He is expected to arrive on Monday to seal the deal and start drilling the team,’ said the source.

The coach’s appointment will come as good news to the ‘Bull’ faithful as they have played three games without a head coach, with assistant coach Bongani Mhlongo holding the reins.

  Highlanders Head of Secretariat Mphumelelo Mnisi said he was not aware of the matter when sought for comment yesterday.

“I have not received any update regarding the recruitment process and therefore cannot comment,” he said.


Chaminuka will not completely be a new face at the Bull’s kraal as the team signed about nine of his players while at Matsapha United.

The players, who were signed by Highlanders in the pre-season, include South African duo of Vusumuzi Zungu and Mthobisi Mngometulu, Sabelo ‘Sawa’ Gamedze, Menzi Mamba and Sidumo Shongwe, amongst others.
