HIGHLANDERS displayed their best performance in the second half of the season, in what has impressed assistant coach Antonio Torres.

Bosso’s run in the second stanza was only outrun by FC Platinum and Ngezi Platinum who collected more points than the Bulawayo giants in the second half of the just ended Castle Lager Premier league season. 

In the 17 games played, FC Platinum collected 41 points while Ngezi Platinum got 30. 

Highlanders are the third best side having collected 28 points.

They won seven games, had the same number of stalemates and lost three games, a feat Torres is proud of.

“Back to Portugal with feeling of job done. Highlanders family, thank you for all the support, such an amazing and lovely people. Now time to enjoy family and prepare for the next season,” wrote Torres on his Facebook wall.

Torres who came in to assist head coach Baltemar Brito ended Bosso’s search for a win outside Bulawayo, something they had last achieved in July 2018 when his team beat Yadah 3-2 at the National Sports Stadium at the beginning of September.

Bosso, who were reeling in the bottom half of the table in the first-half of the season finished in fifth place this past season. 

Speaking at the club’s final pre-match press conference in Bulawayo, the Bosso gaffer said the six months he has spent at the club have been insightful and he understands the players at his disposal.

“About next season, the players we will try and we want to have a good possession game and can play the ball comfortably. In football there are rules and also as a player you need to follow the rules. 

“The kind of rules need a player to be patient, be good at keeping possession, be able to receive the ball and not to be an anxious player. 

“The players we want have to know to be at the right place and not everywhere,” Brito said.

Brito managed 13 league games for Highlanders, with five of those won, six ended in draws while Amahlolanyama were on the losing end once.  — Follow on Twitter @innocentskizoe
