Lwandamina: Zesco will bounce back


Coach George Lwandamina has declared that Zesco United will bounce back following their flopped CAF Confederation Cup group stage campaign.

Zesco were on Sunday eliminated from the 2018/19 Confederation Cup after losing 3-0 at Nkana in their penultimate Group C match played in Wusakile.

Lwandamina admitted that the Zesco team needs re-organisation after accumulating just four points from the possible 15 so far in Group C.

“We have to work and make sure that we get back to the winning the realm. I know the task is huge because defensively we haven’t done well, even in attack we have not done well,” he said.

“We are creating chances but we are not putting them away which actually put pressure on defence. So it is the entire team will have to work on,” Lwandamina said.

Zesco are now focusing on next Sunday’s final Group C match against Ghana’s Asante Kotoko in Ndola on the same day Nkana will be visiting Al Hilal in Sudan.

“I can’t say we have to bring this one or that one we still have players who can work and with a lot of time will get back. Going forward, I am sure will have more time to do the reorganisation and Zesco will get back,” he said.


  1. Useless headless chicken. Doing the same thing all the time and expecting different results is insanity. How do you use Jacob Banda in goal after those errors he made in Sudan?
    Please, Zesco united team mabagement fire that fat chicken masquerading as coach.

  2. I don’t even know why that amature of a goal minder should even be captain of a side. What do you expect? I have always thought ba jocob Banda likula na confidence yakupimisha! He always allows silly goals with no effort.

  3. it’s time management makes some decisions because a lot has to be done in that team and we might lose some quality players with this performances,we can’t just be caf participants but winning caf trophies as well.

  4. Lwandamina can’t manage modern day football; he lacks passion, tact and self motivation. How can he instruct and motivate his boys? Some of us even warned Zesco management before they engaged him for the second time.
