FAZ has dropped George Lwandamina as Zambia coach and brought in Wedson Nyirenda as acting trainer.
FAZ made the announcement on Tuesday citing club pressures at Zesco United for the decision to drop Lwandamina who’s side has a critical CAF Champions League semifinal engagement against Mamelodi Sundowns with the first leg set for Ndola on September 17 and the final leg to follow on September 24 in Pretoria.
Lwandamina leaves the post that he also held in a caretaker capacity since June, 2015 when he replaced Honour Janza.
However, Nyirenda will only briefly act as head coach before an expatriate is hired and the former will be relegated to assistant trainer.
“The process of recruiting as expatriate coach is still underway with finalization between FAZ and the Ministry of Youth,Sport and Child Development at an advanced stage,” FAZ general secretary Ponga Liwewe said in a statement
