Promoted Konkola Blades will maintain head coach Enos Silwimba ahead of the 2017 FAZ Super Division season.
Silwimba on Sunday guided Konkola back to the Super Division after spending a season in Division One.
Konkola secretary Kennedy Chota said maintaining Silwimba will be a way of appreciating him for leading the club back into the Super Division.
“The only way we can pay Enos Silwimba is maintain him as coach. He put in his best that’s why we want to reward him by maintaining him as head coach,” Chota said.
“He has what it takes to excel in the Super Division,” he added.
Silwimba, a former Konkola keeper, is assisted by his ex-team mate Lewingtone Mujembe.
