Give Chilumba time - Simukonda



Nchanga Rangers coach Fighton Simukonda pleaded with Power Dynamos fans to give new trainer Tennant Chilumba time.

Power fan’s booed Chilumba on the Kitwe’s sides way to finishing scoreless at home against Rangers at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe on August 10 in a FAZ Super League Week 16 game.

Saturday’s draw saw Power amass just four points in five games under the new man who replaced Beston Chambeshi, who was fired in June.

“The young boy has just joined the team but they were booing him,” Simukonda said. “We coaches, we are human beings, we need support from soccer fans.

“Results will come, let them have patience.”

Prior to this past weekend’s FAZ Super League home draw, Power had suffered key defeats away to Nkana and Zanaco under Chilumba. And the draw does little to help Power’s status on the FAZ Super League table, where they stay put in 11th place, two notches above the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Chilumba has vowed to solider on despite beginning to feel the early pressure at Arthur Davies. “Fans will talk but we don’t work with fans, I work with players – they are very supportive,” Chilumba said.
