We are just about two months into the 2016/17 season now, and we have already seen a coach being released from his duties. Highlands Park demoted Allan Freese after he failed to get the desired results for the team, which is currently 13th on the PSL standings.
Following their promotion from the NFD, Highlands have only managed to pick up four points from a possible fifteen... definitely not a good start to the campaign!
However, the club owners have acquired the services of experienced former Bafana Bafana head coach Gordon Igesund in the hope that he will come in and save the day.
There is no denying the amount of history Igesund has written in South Africa's soccer books. With four league titles and two cup trophies in his cabinet, hopes are high that he will turn the Lions of the North's fortunes around.
What do you think of Gordon’s appointment at Highlands Park? Do you think he can bring success to the club?
