Highlanders coach Hendrik Pieter de Jongh has suggested how & why the local league will reach better heights.
The Swaziland & Rwanda coach feels that the Premier League’s quality lies in the several teams that have the ability to win the title.
“In Zimbabwe you have about eight teams that are all favourites to win the title at the start of the season,” de Jongh told The Chronicle.
“You have Highlanders, Dynamos, Caps United, FC Platinum, Ngezi, ZPC Kariba, Triangle, and Chicken Inn all in the running to win the title. The league is not easy; those teams are playing for the title every season.”
The Dutchman then concluded with a view of what’s happening with the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA). The 48-year-old advises clubs to pin their success on what happens on the training grounds.
“I will give you an example when the Zimbabwe national team went to Afcon there was chaotic organisation.”
“Players must only focus on training and playing not administrative issues. It is not only Zimbabwe, we saw it with Cameroon and other African countries that’s where Africa gets it wrong,” he concluded.
