Kaindu's Stock Rises At Highlanders
The 34-year-old has had a flying start in his first 15 games in charge of the seven-time Zimbabwe champions since taking charge this past January.
Highlanders are unbeaten this season with nine wins and six draws that included a 1-0 win and 1-1 draw at home over archrivals Caps United and Dynamos respectively.
"We are not talking about the championship but every second, minute, day, week , month, that draws closer, is about building a team for seasons to come," Kaindu told MTNFootball.com.
"We thank God we have gone 15 games unbeaten.
"It has not been easy as we are the team to beat.”
This is Kaindu’s first appointment as head coach after three years as assistant coach at five-time Zambian champions Zanaco.
Highlanders is not new to the Zambian where he has a brief spell as player in the mid 1990’s.
"When we started the season, no one gave us a chance of being even in the top eight saying we did not have good players," Kaindu said.
Kaindu said he is even more delighted to see four of his players called up by Zimbabwe to face his motherland Zambia in a friendly on August 8 in Ndola.
Highlanders last league title came in 2006 and in-between, Monomotapa, Gunners, and Motor Action have shocked the establishment of Dynamos, Caps and Highlanders to win the Zimbabwe league.
The Bulawayo giants currently lead the table on 33 points, four more than second placed Shabanie Mine
Fourth place Dynamos is currently the only other Zimbabwean old guard in the top five together with Highlanders in the hunt for a top four finish for the country’s 2013 African club qualification spots.
