FORMER Highlanders Defender Zephania Ngodzo has blasted the club’s executive and players stating management is running Bosso like a Pakistani tuck shop while those on the pitch were nothing other than unwanted boots from other teams.

Ngodzo who was part of the last Highlanders team to claim the championship in 2006 questioned why the club’s executive failed to add quality players in the mid-season window since it had become apparent Coach Baltemar Brito’s team was struggling upfront.

Brito wanted top striker Obriel Chirinda whom Bulawayo Chiefs did not want to sell to Bosso according to bhorafrika.com sources.

Bulawayo Chiefs were reportedly willing to sell him to Green Fuel and Chicken Inn; evidence of a cold war between the two Bulawayo sides. A leaked letter to fellow PSL club Chicken Inn showed that Chiefs had slapped a US$30,000.00 tag on the striker’s head.

Reacting to Highlanders’ 1-1 draw with Caps United on Sunday, Ngodzo wanted to hear none of the excuses or superlatives Bosso’s social media manager attempted to use in describing their team’s efforts.

“This is not a team. The money to get quality players is there but we prefer to get what other clubs no longer want but still expect to win,” said Ngodzo in isiNdebele.

“Football is now business, it’s not a Pakistani Spaza Shop […] either we wake up or wait for 20 more years without the league title.”

Highlanders were seven points clear at the top after 17 rounds of matches, went 19 matches without tasting defeat and seemed on course to their first title since 2006.

A string of poor performances characterised by a blunt strike force have however seen them fall to fifth position, eight points behind Ngezi Platinum who look set to claim it instead.

Added Ngodzo: “This league was in the bag, but they failed to get us at least two strikers and two good midfielders because it was evident that at the back, we were okay.
