HIGHLANDERS fans gave fully recovered defender Andrew Tandi a standing ovation, saluting the player for working his way back after a horrific injury that had sidelined him since June last year.

Tandi fractured his right fibula, a bone in the lower leg stretching from the knee to the ankle.

A crude tackle from former Dynamos winger Bill Antonio in last season’s first edition of the Battle of Zimbabwe almost ended the former Black Rhinos and Bulawayo Chiefs player’s career.

Tandi’s return was against Caps United in Bosso’s 2-1 win from behind at Barbourfields Stadium.

Tandi paid tribute to the club in his conversation with bhorafrika.com

“I’m happy that I finally made my first appearance after spending a year without kicking the ball,” said Tandi.

“I thank the club for all they did for me during the difficult period when I was injured, I also thank them for giving me another chance. I’m happy to be back.”

He returns to an unbeaten Bosso after 13 weeks in the 2023 Castle Lager season.

The team is on second position, a point behind table topping Ngezi Platinum Stars.

Added Tandi: “To the fans, I would like to express my gratitude to them because they have been supportive since day one. I also appreciate how they cheered me after I came in as a substitute on Sunday.”
