It is believed Bosso have set their sights on six new players, with two, midfielder Winston Mhango and defender Andrew Thandi, who was initially with Black Rhinos before joining ZPC Kariba, already in coach Mandla ‘Lulu’ Mpofu’s squad.

“We are 90 percent done; the process was only halted by the Lockdown. After a full year without football, player recruitment is difficult as coaches can’t recommend players on form and statistics from 2019 without having a look at the player now. This is particularly so for players coming from outside our system,” said Highlanders spokesperson Ronald Moyo.
