ZAMBIAN and former Highlanders player Kelvin Kaindu is the club's new substantive coach, taking over from Mkhuphali Masuku.

Kaindu was assistant coach at crack Zambian side Zanaco.

He will be assisted by long-serving utility player Bekithemba Ndlovu, who will be player-assistant coach as he still has one year left on his contract while former midfielder Amin Soma-Phiri takes over from Jerry Sibanda as the new team manager.

The contracts are for a period of two years as the club has a running contract with a leading financial institution, BancABC, that runs up to December 2013.

The BankABC contract stipulates that the bank will take care of the players and technical team salaries up to that period with the club only taking care of other expenses like winning bonuses.

As reported by this publication, goalkeepers' coach Tembo Chuma has been retained, so has the medical team led by Xolani Ndlovu, while Loyal Nyika also kept his job as the team physiotherapist.

Speaking during a press conference at their offices yesterday, Highlanders chairman Themba Ndlela said the club had put in place structures that are in tandem with the vision and policy of the team.

He said they looked at personnel who understand the structure and will adhere to the policy of the club, highlighting that preference was given to those that had a history with Highlanders before.

The former Bosso forward is at the moment attending an FA international coaching course attached to former English Premiership side Reading. He is expected to join Highlanders on 15 January 2012.
