Bosso played against ZPC Kariba yesterday and drew nil all. Highlanders, who are unbeaten this season, are currently sitting at the top of the log table with a five-point league over Ngezi Platinum FC in second position.
The Bulawayo side appointed Portuguese Baltemar Jose De Oliveira Brito as their new head coach in June 2022.
Brito was together with Jose Mourinho at FC Porto as his assistant when the self-proclaimed Special One stunned the world and guided the Portuguese side to Champions League success in 2004. They were also together during Mourinho’s first spell at Chelsea.
Zimbabweans online were thrilled as Mourinho sent Highlanders a special message.
“Haaaaa mavhura hombe
“Thank you the special one.”
“Now this is a huge flex
“Starting from today kusvika ndife ndakusupporter Bosso …..majersey acho anotengwa kupiii ndiri serious.”
