Zesco United say caretaker coach Tenant Chembo is being considered for the vacant top coaching job at club.
Chembo has been acting head coach since the departure of Zlatko Krmpotic late last season and guided Zesco to winning the league title last November.
Information emanating from club insiders strongly suggests that Young Africans coach George Lwandamina would return to his old club.
But club General Secretary Richard Mulenga has declined to confirm Lwandamina’s imminent return.
“George is contracted to Young Africans so it would be disrespectful for me to start talking about him coming to Zesco. Let’s not talk about George who has a contract with Young Africans, “Mulenga said.
Chembo has guided Zesco to two runners-up league finishes as interim coach in 2013 and 2016 and also won the 2016 Barclays Cup in a caretaker capacity.
“Chembo is under consideration. I said to Tenant that do your job and you be looked at when we consider who we should appoint permanently,” Mulenga said.
