Black Rhinos targets top 4, says coach

Despite assembling a good arsenal ahead of the 2019 Castle lager Premier Soccer League Black Rhinos have set a target of finishing in top four.

In an interview with Zim Morning News Sport Friday,  coach Herbert Maruwa said that their target was to finish in top four and anything beyond that is a bonus.

“Our target this season is to finish in top four, we are working hard to get good results this coming season,” said Maruwa.

Rhinos has been active in the market, in January they bought at least five players to add to their roaster and they have added two more players in February as they seek to bring depth in their team.

Former Yadah utility player Leeroy Murape is one of the latest player to join the army side.

Ex- ZPC Kariba pair of Moses Demera and Francesco Zekumbawira along with former Bulawayo Chiefs defender Andrew Thandi as well as Gift Saunyama and Marvellous Mukumba joined the team in January.

Martin Mine and Jameson Mukombwe have also returned to the club from loan spells with other local teams.

However, Highlanders FC decided to end their relationship with their new signing Alfred Chiname in less than a month into their marriage.

Bosso announced on their Twitter account that they had terminated their relationship with Chiname.

“We would like to announce that Highlanders F.C has parted ways with goalkeeper Alfred Chiname. Chiname had been brought in to add competition in the goalkeeping department this season and beyond. However, the Club and Chiname have agreed to mutually terminate the relationship on professional grounds. The Club wishes Chiname well in his football endeavors,” read the Tweet.

The league which is expected to start early in March has seen local teams being active in the market in a bid to beef up their squads to challenge the league and other cups this season.
