Former Highlanders versatile player Bruce Kangwa who now plies his trade in the Tanzanian league, turning for Azam FC has thrown his weight behind his former club Bosso ahead of the weekend Castle Larger Premier Soccer League match between the Bulawayo giants and Caps United to be played at Barbourfields stadium.
In this same fixture on the 17th of July 2016, Kangwa sent a multitude of Bosso fans into frenzy when he received a well crufted pass from Prince Dube in the 63rd minute of the match and scored the only goal of the day, ironically, his last goal for the Bulawayo giants as he went on to find a new home in Tanzania.
Kangwa told Highlanders FC Media that he wishes the boys all the best, adding that matches against Caps United are big matches that motivates players.
“I wish the boys all the best against Caps United on Sunday. As we all know, Caps United are not a small side, so playing playing against them won’t be easy. But playing against them motivates every player from training up to match day,” said Kangwa.
He went on to rally Highlanders fans to throng Barbourfields stadium and create an unfriendly environment for the opponents, also predicting a win for his former side.
“My prediction is that the boys will win 1-0. Go there guys and do anything. I know you can make it. As for supporters, go and support the boys. Let’s go there in numbers because you as supporters motivate those boys, and you are always the 12th man,” added Kangwa.
Kangwa joined Highlanders from Railstars in 2009 and went on to establish himself as one of the most consistent Bosso players until he left for Tanzania in 2016.
Although Kangwa spent the better part of his eight year stay at Highlanders playing as a left back, he was converted into a forward by former coach Erol Akbay in 2016, a role he played very well and made him attract interests from Azam.
When he left for Azam mid season in 2016, he was the league’s top goal scorer with seven goals.
