Lusaka dynamos risk demotion
Lusaka Dynamos risk being demoted from the MTN FAZ Super League for failing to comply with club licensing rules and regulations, The ZamFoot crew understands.
Lusaka Dynamos have failed to comply with the financial criterion as several of their player as well as former coaches are owed huge sums of money in salary arrears.
The players and officials, who cannot be named, have since taken their case to FIFA, to arbitrate on their behalf.
The ZamFoot crew understands that the two coaches are owed over $100,000.
FIFA is expected to pay the concerned parties (5 players and 2 coaches). The World football governing body will then deduct the money from the grant which is given to football association of Zambia.
After that FAZ will ask Lusaka dynamos to pay the money back to the Association, Should they fail to oblige then they will be thrown out of the Super League.
This is on the basis of failing to meet the club licensing criteria. Club licensing at FAZ is headed by Erick Mwanza.
Lusaka Dynamos earned a tag of ‘money bags’ or big spenders after long time owner Hanif Adams sold half of his stake to a businessman and they went on a spending spree which saw them attract some of the top talents on the continent.
The likes Chris Mugalu, Joseph Ochaya were fused with some of Zambia’s finest talents like Fwayo Tembo but unfortunately, the team has struggled financially this season.
There has been a lot of turmoil behind the scenes at the legendary club which has been launching pad for the likes Hichani Himoonde, William Njobvu, Kalililo Kakonje, Danny Munyao and Philimon Chipeta
