FAZ Division One North side Roan United have parted ways with head coach John Lungu.

Club chairman Chisoni Miti said the two parties have separated by mutual consent.

Roan finished fifth in the 2015 FAZ Division One North campaign with 55 points from 34 matches.

“We have parted company on mutual agreement.Not that he performed badly but our primary objective was to get into the Super Division,” Miti said.

The ex-Roan and Zambia midfielder was hired last May following the resignation of veteran trainer Fordson Kabole.

Lungu has previously served as assistant coach at Zanaco, Kalulushi Modern Stars and Lime Hotspurs.

Meanwhile, Roan assistant trainer and ex-Chipolopolo defender Hilary Makasa has been promoted to the role of interim head coach.

“Mr. Makasa who was our assistant is now acting head coach,” Miti said.

Makasa served as Roan interim trainer after Kabole’s departure earlier in the season.
