Simukonda not fired yet – FAZ
The Football Association of Zambia has maintained that Fighton Simukonda is still the coach for the U23 national team.
FAZ spokesperson Nkweto Tembwe said Simukonda’s fate is yet to be reviewed by the Executive committee.
“I would like to make it clear that Fighton Simukonda is still the coach of the Zambia U23 national football team. Decisions to hire or fire a national coach are the prerogative of the Executive Committee of FAZ,” Tembwe said.
“The team only returned a few days ago and no meeting has been held by the Executive to review the performance of the U23.
“The Executive Committee which is the body which makes decisions on the fate of our coaches has not convened any meeting to discuss and make a stance on the matter,” he said.
However, the executive committee members have already made it clear that they want to show Simukonda the door after the U23 national team’s embarrassing outing in Senegal which saw them post three straight losses in the group stage of the CAF U23 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
