Highlanders given Caf lifeline



Highlanders were given a three year ban by CAF for withdrawing from the Champions League last season after the draw was already done.

So this season, though they finished second in the Castle Lager League behind eventual winners Dynamos, they won’t be competing in the continental tournament.

But the Bulawayo side has appealed to the CAF organising committee to change the decision and their hopes have been given a slight lifeline due to a letter from the African governing body.

Highlanders chairman Peter Dube told Supersport.com that they have received correspondence through the Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League (PSL) that CAF are looking at the possibility of Highlanders playing in the next year’s CAF Champions League.

“The PSL have received a letter from CAF that they asked them if they can add Highlanders on the Zimbabwe teams that will play in the CAF tournaments next year. That gives us a lifeline and we would be happy to have that chance,” Dube said.

So far, three teams will represent Zimbabwe in next year’s CAF Champions League and Confederations Cup in Dynamos, Chicken Inn and Monomotapa. Highlanders almost went the entire season unbeaten in the league, losing just once, but they finished as runners-up on goal difference behind DeMbare.
