REUBEN Njavela has taken over the reins as head coach of promoted New Monze Swallows Football Club following the sudden departure of Chris Kaunda just less than a month in the job.
Kaunda quit the Monze club this week citing personal reasons. Club media and public relations officer Tim Zulu confirmed the development in an interview.
Zulu said Kaunda did not give management reasons for his resignation.
“We dont know he did not tell anyone why he was leaving. We asked him why he was resigning but he just said its personal, so you know when a person tells you that, you cant force him to say something else. He just said its personal reasons,” Zulu said.
“So now we have Reuben plus two other assistants that have been with the team from Division One.”
Asked about the official venue the team will be using in Monze, Zulu said Lwenga grounds would be the official home ground for Swallows.
“That was resolved a long time ago. We will be using Lwenga grounds in Monze…regarding the players, we have not bought any notable players we just have the local players,” said Zulu.
Swallows and Kabwe Youth Soccer Academy will be campaigning in the Super Division for the first time having won promotion from their respective zones.
Legendary Kitwe United and National Assembly have returned to the topflight to complete the pack of teams to qualify from Division One. The Super league kicks off on March 18.
