HIGHLANDERS coach Kelvin Kaindu has pleaded with the club’s fans to lower expectations on star winger Kuda Mahachi.

Following an awe-inspiring showing at the Chan tournament earlier this year, Mahachi’s profile shot up, winning him a five-year contract with Mamelodi Sundowns before he was loaned out to Highlanders for six months.

But he has been battling to settle at the Bulawayo giants, drawing criticism from Highlanders fans who expected top-drawer performances from him.

“Mahachi is a very good player and there is no doubt about that. It is just that there are a lot of expectations on him from people. The pressure is just unnecessary because he needs time to adjust here. He will show the best of himself before he leaves for South Africa,” Kaindu said.

Mahachi’s failure to make an impact amid high expectations has been largely exposed by Highlanders poor run of form that has seen the Bulawayo giants winless in five straight matches.

Also compounding his woes was missing the decisive penalty in the Independence Trophy semifinal against FC Platinum and in the process denying Highlanders a final berth.

Last Saturday he came on as a substitute in Highlanders’ 0-0 draw with Chapungu but made no difference as Kaindu’s side were desperate for goals.
