It is bad news for the Highlanders Football Club family and friends days after the club continued with their winning streak over the weekend. This is after the Highlanders players reportedly resumed their strike after their win over Bulawayo City in the Chibuku Super Cup match in which they collected the maximum points.
Even though they played the match, they had reportedly not attended training for three days.This was part of the players' way of making the team management review their wages as promised.It is reported that the players are demanding that their earnings be doubled.
It would have been an embarrassment for Highlanders Football Club if the Sunday match would have been boycotted, and the club would have been fined as well for the action.In accordance to the report, Bosso failed to raise the US$1300 as top up to the pledge that had been reportedly made by a donor from Victoria Falls.
The donor is alleged to have pledged to pay half of the US$100 that was being demanded by the players. The players are alleged to have thought that the club would raise the balance by yesterday. When they were reportedly informed of the US$50 that was available , they refused to resume training.
This is not looking good for the former league champions of Zimbabwe as it is unknown when the players' demands will be addressed and it is yet to be known if their remaining fixtures will be fulfilled.
