Bosso's Kaindu gets further cap from Caf, Cosafa

HIGHLANDERS FC coach Kelvin Kaindu could not attend his team's end of year awards ceremony and the Castle Lager Premiership banquet last year as he was part of the Confederation of African Football (Caf) and Cosafa technical team at last month's regional boys and girls' soccer tournament in Zambia.




The Bosso coach described the experience as eye-opening, saying he learnt a lot from the exposure after being identified along another Zambian coaching in Zimbabwe, Tennant Chilumba by the Football Association of Zambia to be part of the technical analysis team.

"I was among Zambian coaches identified by our football association to be part of the technical team for Caf and Cosafa. We were seven of us and we worked with senior coaches like Patrick Phiri and Wesley Moondo both of whom have had stints with the Zambia senior national team.

"To have been recommended by FAZ was an honour. It was enriching to serve football in that capacity. There is so much we learnt from the tournament that we hope will benefit our clubs and football in the region as we shared our notes with Cosafa and Caf with daily presentations on our analysis of the games we would have watched," said Kaindu.

He described the tournament schedule as too demanding.

"We watched more than two games a day running into the evening. We were taking notes and at the end of business you had to write your analysis for power-point presentation the following morning. It was too demanding," said the Highlanders coach.

He said what had impressed him was that Zambia was able to play host to the event successfully.

"While there were teething problems at the beginning but once the games got going, they managed to host an exciting tournament. Even us on the analysis side we were not sure but after a few matches we got familiar with what we were supposed to do," said Kaindu.

Kaindu noted that most teams played the 4-4-2 formation. The event presented a number of goals for the fans and at the end the coaches were asked to come up with the region's best X1 in both the boys and girls' categories.

Zimbabwe was not represented in the boys' category while three girls were drafted into the all-star select.

Kaindu said he failed to attend the Highlanders awards and Castle Lager banquet because the two events coincided with the tournament in Zambia.

"I could not be in Zimbabwe for both. I was at the tournament at that time, I would have availed myself to both if not for the role I had there which I hope will help improve football on the continent," said the soft-spoken gaffer on Thursday.

Kaindu went to Zambia odds-on favourite for the Coach of the Year award with Callisto Pasuwa of Dynamos the eventual winner.

The selections were done before he landed the league and cup double.
