Mbabane Highlanders management is working around the clock in the background to sort the paperwork of their new coach ahead of this weekend’s games.
The club on Tuesday assured its hordes of supporters that new South African coach, Solly Luvhengo will be ready to work this weekend in the league clash against Royal Leopard.
In a statement released by Assistant Manager, Makhosonkhe Gama, the club revealed that the paperwork of former South Africa’s National Under-23 head coach is being sorted out.
“Do not be stressed Bomagebhula about the eligibility of our coach. It took our Director Chief Ally Kgomongwe ample time of thorough research looking for a high-quality coach to take us forward. The unveiled coach has ticked all the boxes in terms of CAF Licence requirements. Our boss has outdone himself in finding us the best, as he always does. Our management is sorting out paperwork for our coach to start working,” part of the statement released on the club’s website reads.
Luvhengo was previously hired by Denver Sundowns but only lasted one game when his coaching qualifications were disapproved by the office of the Technical Director, Bizzah Mkhonta and he was sent back home to South Africa to have his coaching papers sorted out. He never returned.
He resurfaced last Saturday when he was unveiled by Highlanders’ Managing Director Chief Ally Kgomongwe before the goalless draw with Young Buffaloes at Mavuso Sports Centre.
The highly qualified Luvhengo holds a FIFA High-level course certificate attained in 2011, SAFA PRO-Licence Level 3 attained in 2012 and has been to the FIFA World Cup Under-17 tournament in Trinidad and Tobago in 2010.
