Highlanders Announce Luphahla's New Role, 2023 Coaches, Players6 months ago
Highlanders Football Club have announced their players and coaches ahead of the start of the 2023 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season, with Joel Luphahla being given a new role.
Luphahla, previously the second assistant coach, is now the strikers’ coach, according to the Sunday News.
The former Warriors striker has a CAF C coaching badge, which means he cannot be an assistant coach to Baltemar Brito.
Last season, Luphahla could not sit in the technical zone after ZIFA directed that Premier Soccer League coaches and their assistants must be holders of CAF A.
Club legend, Madinda Ndlovu, who recently made a return to Bosso is the first assistant coach while Antonio Torres comes as the second assistant. Torres has a Uefa B but is said to be working on upgrading his qualifications.
