MULWANDA LUPIYA, Ndola and CECILIA ZULU, Lusaka
KONKOLA Blades have fired coach Enos Silwimba bringing the number of coaches dismissed by Super Division clubs
this season to six.
Silwimba confirmed his sacking in an interview from Chililabombwe yesterday but referred queries to the club executive.
“Yes, I have just been told today [yesterday] that I am no longer part of the team but call the club secretary for more details,” he said.
Last Saturday, Blades lost 3-0 to Mufulira Wanderers in a Super Division Week 15 match at Shinde Stadium.
“We have made the changes to the technical bench but I can only give you the details of the changes tomorrow [today] regarding who is going out and who is coming in,” club secretary Kennedy Chota said in a separate interview.
Silwimba, who guided the Chililabombwe outfit back to the topflight last season, was re-appointed in January last year.
Meanwhile, newly appointed Warriors coach Chikwanda is targeting a top-eight finish at the end of season.
Chikwanda said from Kabwe yesterday that he is equal to the task of reviving ‘Magnificent’ Warriors.
