Still the best Coach for Zesco United
Opinion | Zesco should not fire George Lwandamina
Zesco United have in the recent few years turned to be Zambia’s pride at club level as they churned out consistently good performances at both local and international level.
At the start of the season, it was not a question of how well they will do in the league it was a question of how well prepared they would be for the CAF competitions.
However, the results at both local and international level have been poor as George Lwandamina has failed to find the winning formula for ZEGA. His team gave not won in the last 7 games and the fans are demanding for the firing of the head coach “Chicken”.
But is it fair to lump the blame of Chicken?
There was very little he could to change or rejuvenate the current team as he inherited the squad from Tenant Chembo. After winning the league last season, the team needed massive changes and inclusions. Most Zesco fans argued at that point that they had the team to carry on.
To add to the mix, the change in the CAF calendar gave Lwandamina little time to add to his squad after winning the title.
The team has played too much football and it has reached a bad phase. This could be a blessing in disguise as management will now move to quickly being in new blood in the team.
A number of players have reached their limit and the only thing they can do now is to just be those experienced players that come in when things are okay and run off games. The situation of Isaac Chansa at Forest Rangers .
WHY GEORGE NEEDS TO CONTINUE
Despite the elimination from the CAF Confederation Cup with a game to spare – Lwandamina must stay on. With him at the helm, Zesco United are at least assured of participation in the next CAF competition. There will not be many of the Mufulira Wanderers result (2-1 loss) under Chicken.
The season is too short for experiments and change on that bench will just destabilize the team further.
Don’t be misled , ZESCO UNITED is still that big team we have in the land and one stable team to represent us on the continental show piece.
Lwandamina will turn things around the soonest and that can actually start this Sunday against Asante Kotoko.
