Nyirenda and Zesco part ways



MTN/FAZ Super League giants Zesco United FC have announced that head coach Wedson Nyirenda has left the club.

Nyirenda guided the Ndola based outfit to third position in the 2012 season.

Club general secretary Justin Mumba told the club's official website in a statement on Monday that the two-time league winning coach tendered his resignation on Sunday. Mumba's statement also indicated that second assistant coach Dabid Chilufya had also left the club.

“It’s with heavy heart and sadness that the club would like to announce that the head coach Mr. Wedson Nyirenda has resigned and left the club with immediate effect," read the statement.

"As a club we regret his departure, it must be emphasized that he arrived at this decision on his accord without any undue influence. It should be realized that as a club we have repeatedly backed him to continue leading the club beyond 2013.”

“ As a club we have wished him all the very best. Wedson has been the club’s most successful coach to date and as a club we acknowledged his contribution by bestowing the honorary membership, the club’s highest honor on him last month.”

Zesco United further stated that they would soon issue a comprehensive statement on the way forward regarding the position of their head coach but added that assistant coach Tenant Chembo would take charge of the team in the interim.
