Struggling FAZ Super League side Roan United have appointed Dean Mwiinde as new club head coach.
Club secretary Chisoni Miti said Mwiinde replaces Bruce Mwape who has failed to report at Roan after being given the job last week.
Mwiinde has been handed a six-month deal and told to save the Luanshya side from relegation.
“We have appointed Mr. Dean Mwiinde as our head coach.He reported for work today.The contract is performance based and runs up to December,” Miti said.
Mwiinde will be assisted by Simonda Kaunda who was caretaker coach and Hilary Makasa.
Roan are 15th on the league table.
Meanwhile, Mwape was expected to begin his second stint as Road coach last Thursday after signing a contract on Monday.
“Firstly, we settled for Mr. Mwape and he was introduced to the players on Tuesday last week but has not shown up over
reasons known to himself,” he said.
Miti added:”It appears we are squeezing blood from a stone.”
Mwape left Roan to join Konkola Mine Police last August.
