Relegation threatened FAZ Super Division side Konkola Blades have fired head coach Enos Silwimba after a spate of poor results.

Blades are currently fourth from the bottom of the 16-team-table with 19 points from 20 games played.

Silwimba’s dismissal could have been triggered by last Saturday’s 4-1 loss the Chililabombwe outfit suffered at Nkwazi.

“I would like to confirm that we have parted company with head coach Enos Silwimba starting today. This is due to poor results,” club Secretary Kennedy Chota confirmed on Tuesday.

Silwimba was promoted as head coach almost a year ago after the departure of Beston Chambeshi who trekked to Nkana.

Chota said Blades have since elevated assistant trainer John Munkonje to the role of acting head coach.

“As we make other plans the assistant John Munkonje will be the acting head coach and he will be assisted by Godffrey Siame and team manager Lewington Mujembe,” he revealed

Konkola have ten matches in which to survive relegation.

  1. Its a merry go round. We have limited Coaches in Zambia just like we do have a certain mumber of Clubs. The gentleman has been fired because of a spate of poor results as the Club’s secretary posited. What I know for a fact is that he will be replaced by some one who would been fired by another Club. That is precisely why I call coaching in Zambia meery go round.
    The question I have for those managing these Clubs is do you know that players are born are not made. You can bring Pellegrin from Manc city to Coach Konkola Blades but that would not change anything.Look at Nkana for instance. The team is lying where it is not because of Coaching but because good players that helped the team succed are not there.
