MBABANE – “We need players who can score goals.”

The above statement was made by Mbabane Highlanders South African-born gaffer Selaotse ‘Sly’ Mosala after watching his charges beat Manzini Wanderers 1-0, courtesy of Siwakhile Shongwe’s 63rd minute strike to win the 2022 Bible Society Cup at the Mavuso Sports Centre on Saturday.
The black and white capital giants brushed aside Denver Sundowns in the second semifinals on 6-5 penalties after a 2-all draw in regulation time, to set a date in the finals with Manzini Wanderers, who beat city rivals Moneni Pirates 3-0 in the first semifinals. “It’s worrying that we created a number of chances but we failed to score, we can’t rely on one player to score for us. We need to find players that will help us score goals,” Mosala said.

Faced

The former Free State Stars assistant coach said this was not just an issue for Mbabane Highlanders only, but all the elite league teams were faced with this challenge. “If we need to solve this we should go internationally for top quality strikers,” he said. He also said the international practice matches against the South African top sides in Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates helped them a lot to win this cup. “We need to go back and have international friendly matches against big sides in the continent, as playing in Africa is tough,” he said.

Trailists

When asked about the trailists that were given a run during the Bible Society Cup, the coach said for now  he could not say anything as they would have to meet with the Managing Director (MD) Chief Ally Kgomongwe. “We need players that will add value in the team not just average players,” he said. He further said a foreign player should be better than the locals, as they could not afford to sign an international player to warm the bench.
