Lwandamina to be named Zesco coach next week
George Lwandamina will be announced as the new Zesco United coach next week, the ZamFoot Crew understands.
According to sources in Ndola, Lwandamina’s return to Levy Mwanawasa Stadium is being delayed by his current employers Young Africans.
“Everything has been agreed between the two parties (Lwandamina and Zesco Utd),” a source said
“But Yanga is demanding for compensation because Lwandamina still has a contract,” adds the source.
Should negotiations conclude this weekend, then Chicken George will be in the stands on Tuesday watching Zesco United’s CAF Champions League first leg clash against Ivory Coast’s Asec Mimosas.
With Lwandamina expected to come with his assistant Noel Mwandila, the interim coach Tenant Chembo is expected to leave the club.
Chembo has been a long serving assistant at the Ndola club including under Lwandamina as the two helped Zega to a league title as well as a semi final spot in the 2016 Champions League.
For Lwandamina, Zesco United will be a special club for him after he finally broke the jinx of having not won the league title.
The former Mufulira Wanderers defender has also managed Green Buffaloes and Red Arrows.
On the international stage, Lwandamina led Zambia Under-20 to the FIFA 2007 World Youth Championship in Canada as the likes of Emmanuel Mayuka, Rodger Kola, Stopilla Sunzu, William Njobvu, Sebastian Mwanza and Fwayo Tembo rode to stardom.
Then he was handed the job he craved the most as Chipolopolo coach but after handing caps to the likes of Ben Chepeshi, Boyd Mkaandawire and Paul Katema, Zambia failed to qualify to the 2017 edition of the African Cup of Nations.
This was the second time since 1990.
His positive at the helm of the national team was the partnership of Winstone Kalengo and Collins Mbesuma upfront .
