Zeddy Saileti says he is not bitter after being fired as Nkana coach on Wednesday.
Saileti has been replaced by Nkana legend Beston Chambeshi who has left Lumwana Radiants.
Nkana have 16 points, four behind Super Division leaders Lusaka Dynamos, after 11 matches played.
“This is football. I do not regret anything. I have not failed,” Saileti said hours after receiving his dismissal letter.
Nkana posted four wins, four draws and three defeats under Saileti who was promoted at the start of the season.
Saileti took over from Aggrey Chiyangi who was indirectly fired before being made club technical director.
And speaking privately in his farewell message to players, Saileti urged players to remain committed and support his successor.
He also urged players to win Saturday’s Kitwe derby against town rivals Power Dynamos.
