Lwandamina to continue with dual roles as Zesco and Chipolopolo coach

Lwandamina to continue with dual roles as Zesco and Chipolopolo coach

George Lwandamina is set to stay on as Zambia coach for the foreseeable future despite concerns over his dual role.

Lwandamina is also coach of Faz Super League champions Zesco United.

He was appointed on a caretaker role last June following the dismissal of Honour Janza.

There have been concerns raised recently that Lwandamina might be overwhelmed with work especially with Zesco’s prospective qualification to the group stage of the 2016 Caf Champions League should they beat Stade Malien on Tuesday at home after a 3-1 away victory on April 9 in Mali.

“The Football Association of Zambia (Faz) has no money at the moment to engage Lwandamina on a full-time basis,” a Faz source told The Post Newspaper.

“Moreover, he has a running contract with Zesco and they (Faz) can’t just abruptly engage him.

“So both parties have agreed that Faz engages an assistant coach who will be there when there is a clash of matches.”

Lwandamina’s next assignment with Zambia is next month with a trip to Namibia to participate in the 2016 Cosafa Cup that will be held in Windhoek from May 15-29.

A week later, Zambia will be on the road to Bissau to face Guinea Bissau in a 2017 Africa Cup penultimate Group E qualifier on June 2.

Thereafter, and should Zesco advance to the group stage, Lwandamina should be in Champions’ League group stage action on match-day-one during the weekend of June 10-12.
