Mambare proud of second place

Bulawayo-based Highlanders may not have won the league but they are proud of what they have achieved this season.

Bosso, as Highlanders are known in football circles, lost only one game the whole season in the Castle Lager league when they went 2-1 down to Monomotapa.

They eventually finished second with same points tally as champions Dynamos, but their Harare rivals had a superior goal difference.

Midfielder Masimba Mambare told Supersport.com that he was happy with the way they challenged for the title. He said they played their hearts right until the last game of the season, where they beat Blue Rangers in Harare.

“It is always good to win the league title. It is the best prize in football but we really don’t mind finishing second in the league,” he said.

“We played very well and I think it’s very unfortunate we could not win the championship at the last minute. We deserved to win the league if you look at the way we played the whole season.”

“We can all see that it was a great season for Bosso. We the Highlanders family are happy and I think the fans don’t mind that we finished on second position. They are happy we fought hard for the league title and hopefully next year we can start from here and win something. But all in all we have done very well this season,” Mambare concluded.
