Sports PROFILE: Who is George Lwandamina?

George Lwandamina heads back to the familiar territory after a five-year hiatus from the Zambia national team.

Lwandamina returns for a second stint as Zambia coach after an unsuccessful two-match reign as interim trainer in 2010 when he failed to lead the team to the 2011 CHAN tournament.

He also served as Zambia assistant coach under Herve Renard from 2008 to 2010.

Lwandamina also led the Zambia Under-20 team to the 2007 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Canada where the team reached the last 16.

Some the players in that Under-20 team and now Zambia mainstays are defender Stopilla Sunzu including strikers Emmanuel Mayuka and Fwayo Tembo.

Midfielder Nathan Sinkala was part of his unsuccessful 2009 Cosafa Youth Championship team that made a group stage exit in Kimberley.

Lwandamina led the Zambia Under-20 to Cosafa victory in 2003 including two runner-up finishes in 2004 and 2006 where he groomed the likes of Rainford Kalaba, Davies Nkausu, Jacob Mulenga and Clifford Mulenga.

At club level he led Green Buffaloes to runners-up finishes in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007.

He won the Barclays Cup with Red Arrows in 2013 that he retained last season when the win the league and Cup double in his first season at his current team Zesco United.

His other previous appointments include Kabwe Warriors, Nchanga Rangers where he was technical director from 2000 to 2001, and Mufulira Wanderers where he won two league titles as Ashios Melu’s assistant in 1995 and 1996.

  1. He was also part of the last Mighty Mufulira wanderers team to have won the Zambian league in 1995. He was fondly called George ‘Chicken’ Lwandamina.

  2. I still remember him playing in the amateur league on the same team with the late Kapambwe Mulenga. He’s a cool loyal guy that I think works well with others. Test of times are different, hope he succeeds. I wish him all the best.

  3. Thought a Profile would first start with when he was born, where he was educated from if any, where he started his football career and so on and so forth. Anyway……..

  4. I have to add that Janza doesnt have guts. He is the most highly qualified coach in zambia but he allows FAZ to push him in all directions

    • Janza is like most Zambian educated fools who have failed to run all institutions in Zambia e.g. UNZA, CBU, NIPA, NRDC, UTH, Chingola North Hospital, water utility companies, councils etc. By the way, what is paper qualifications???

  5. …and he was part of the gallant KK eleven that participated at the memorable 1988 Seoul olympics.
