It wasn’t meant to be- Kaindu



Highlanders really took the league title race to the wire as they finished on the same points as rivals Dynamos but finished as runners up on goal difference.

On Sunday, Highlanders took on Blue Rangers at Gwanzura Stadium in Harare in their final game of the season.

If Highlanders had won and Dynamos lost against Hardbody in Gweru, the Bulawayo side could have won the league.

Although Highlanders won their game 2-0, with goals coming from Harrison Masuku and Masimba Mambare, DeMbare had done enough by holding Hardbody to a 1-1 draw – making sure that the Harare side retained the trophy they won last season.

However, Highlanders have to be applauded for losing only one game the whole season – but they had more draws than Dynamos which gave the Harare side the edge to win the league race.

Highlanders coach Kelvin Kaindu said that they gave their best and were unfortunate not to win the league.

“I think we had a good season. Look at the way we went 23 games unbeaten? Oh yes, maybe it wasn’t just meant to be,” he said.

“We will continue from where we have left next year and if we can keep our players we will have a great season just like this one. We worked hard but it wasn’t meant to be,” the Zambia born mentor concluded.
