Kaindu digs in

BULAWAYO - Kelvin Kaindu says he is “trained to handle pressure” and was not moved in any way by the anger directed at him by rowdy Highlanders fans that rioted after Sunday’s loss to ZPC Kariba.

Following Bosso’s 1-3 defeat to ZPC at Hartsfield Rugby Ground, their fans took matters into their own hands and turned violent as they called for Kaindu to resign.

The irate Highlanders fans threw missiles onto the pitch trapping both teams at the centre of the pitch where they were protected by police details.

Police had to use teargas to restore order but after the dust had settled it emerged that a 13-year-old boy had been injured while ZPC coach Saul Chaminuka claimed that two of his players were struck by the missiles.

“Mmmm, I’m trained to handle pressure, honestly.” Kaindu said. “I repeat and say it again, I have worked well with everybody.

“I don’t have a problem with anybody. When we lost to Dynamos (in the TM Pick n Pay Challenge Cup final) one of the journalists was laughing at me. I spoke to him nicely. I’m different.

“I was made different and I appreciate what God did to me and I told him ‘if it was different coach that had lost and you were laughing at him it would be an assault case’.”

Asked if he felt he still had the backing of the Bosso executive considering his team’s poor form Kaindu said:

“I’m not going to answer anything about the executive. You can ask me anything else but not the executive.

“Before I came here there was speculation, when I was in Europe there was speculation. I’m here there is still speculation. I will go there will still be speculation.”

There reports that if Bosso part ways with the Zambian coach, he will be replaced by former Chicken Inn gaffer Mandla Mpofu.

“People may be angry, it is so disappointing to lose at home , you could see how the missiles were coming it goes beyond football but if we are going to start crying then we will cry until the end of the season. But what is important is to pick ourselves up,” said Kaindu.
