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 .

    I still feel Chembo has been treated unfairly.

  2. Muso says:

    I equally feel the same.In my opinion, i feel Mr.Chembo is a Very good coach.What has he failed to Do? He managed Zesco very well when white man left.He brought in his principles and Zesco started winning games.It will be understood if he be leaving on his own not because of Frustration of being given the top job. Well done ba Chembo, i know you do better given a managerial position. Wishing greatness.

    Does chembo, Ave the right qualifications for a coach?.If not, then zesco has the right to employ a qualified coach.I can blame zesco.I think zesco administration are thinking on the best interests of the club.Am nkana supporter,but Ave not been happy to see the standard of football going down by zesco. I desire that the standard for zesco must rise, for the sake of the national team and to give nkana, zanaco, buffalo and power good competition. If chembo is not qualified, then he should not complain,but ask the administration to give him another job.Zescos standards have gone down.And it’s not good for the country. I support the move by the zesco administration to employ a qualified coach.

  9. Benny says:

    If he is not qualified let him go 2 school don’t give him any other job at zesco such as kakwempa. But l don’t know if it’s true because zesco denied having in contact with chicken over the coaching job if it’s true l feel bad the way he can leave the job in Tanzania, he need 2 respect his employers.
