CHAN 2016 – Lwandamina :I will not resign as National team coach

Zambian coach George Lwandamina has said that he will not resign as the Chipolopolo coach despite his team bowing out of the quarterfinals of the ongoing CHAN tournament in Rwanda.
Zambia lost to Guinea 5-4 on post match penalties after a goalless draw in both normal and extra time.

Speaking at a press conference in Rubavu stadium just after their match with Guinea, Lwandamina said coaching the National team is a calling and will still render his services both to the National team and ZSL side Zesco.

‘Thank you so much, a very difficult question but I will answer like this, this is a national calling and being Zambian when called upon for a noble course I will continue if the people who gave me the opportunity still wants to and Zesco that’s where I am employed so I can’t resign from Zesco’

Lwandamina said his charges played well as planned but the Guinean’s were so fast. ‘My defenders were water tight and it terms of chances we created several. We could have killed the game but we were wasteful.’

The Zesco United coach said he had two strikers upfront and not one as it is said.

Zambia exits the tournament shoulder high being the only team not conceding a goal.

guinea will meet Congo DR who edged Rwanda in the first semi final on Wednesday at the National Stadium.
