A majority of Highlanders Football Club's followers have hailed management's decision to engage club legend Madinda Ndlovu as first team and director of junior development.

Bosso followers believe Ndlovu's return will aid the club's junior development, with the hope of having more players from the development structures making it into the senior team.

Ndlovu, whose appointment was confirmed on Monday, has signed a two-year contract with Highlanders to be the senior team's first assistant coach to Baltemar Brito.

With Joel Luphahla unqualified to sit on the bench as he does not have the required Caf A coaching badge, Highlanders had been hard-pressed to find someone who will sit with Brito on match days.

Last season, Brito cast a lone figure in the technical area after his assistants, Luphahla and Antonio Torres were prohibited from the bench as Zifa implemented club licensing which requires PSL coaches and assistant gaffer to be Caf A licence holders.

Below are some of Highlanders followers' comments on Ndlovu's appointment.

Polite Thulani Bhebhe: He has a sharp eye for talent and he believes in young blood.

Mxolisi Ndlovu: Director of Jnr development yes, yes, but Asst coach yikujayela ubhudasi lokhu. ubhudasi umkhulu kulalokho okwabo Asst. Yikupha umnewethu u don't touch we bhulugwe. Director of Jnr Development perfect, instead he should have been appointed director of football and manage umlungu lowu futhi.

Mpumelelo Fah Mbesuma Nkomazana: This is the best move ever, Siyabonga kakhulu mphathi … so let him do his job.

Albert Thebe: Assistant Coach my foot!! This man is a seasoned coach who has not been anyone's assistant for a long time. Then he is appointed assistant coach at Bosso (not Barcelona's!!)!! Come on Bosso bosses! U have two bulls in the kraal and u best have a way to deal with the eventual fallout!! Eish you guys so!! Hayi ah!

Tom Mthombeni: Good times are back at Bosso. We are assured of a strong junior policy. Madinda understands very well the spirit of Bosso and the root of its success.

Keepwell Zuzumbe: With Madinda no mediocre player will ever join Highlanders. He should have been recruited long back to assemble the team. The current squad is not good enough to compete.
