Zesco United says Coach George Lwandamina has a three-year contract at the club and has not communicated his intentions at the end of the contract.
This follows media reports that Lwandamina is in Tanzania having talks and at the verge of signing a two-year contract with Young Africans Sporting Club.
In a joint statement, ZESCO United Acting General Secretary Richard Mulenga and Media Officer Katebe Chengo said if indeed these media reports are true, Lwandamina will be in breach of his contract with the club, we believe he is a professional and is expected to behave as such.
“Lwandamina has a three year running contract that expires in January 2017 and the club has not entered into negotiations to have the contract extended and Lwandamina has not communicated his intentions at the end of the contract,” the statement read.
“As far as the Club is concerned, Lwandamina is in Monze attending a family bereavement as he stated on Sunday when he sought permission to leave from the Team Manager, Mr Mabvuto Banda and is expected to return to camp today for the midweek rescheduled game against Nkwazi FC in Lusaka tomorrow. We believe that he is aware of his contractual obligations and implications of a possible breach.”
