ZANACO FC says it has made the right decision to send head coach Numba Mumamba and assistant coach Kelvin Kaindu on indefinite leave.
Club general manager Marlon Kananda said a decision would be made before the end of this week.
“The leave is indefinite, we have given Robin Munsaka to train and coach the team ahead of Wednesday game, but we will make the decision before this week ends,” he said.
“For us to make this decision, we believe we have done the right thing because this team is performance based. I know that Numba and Kelvin are very good coaches but the way things are moving at the moment has necessitated that we send the coaches on administrative leave because we are a performance-based team.”
He said current team manager Robin Munsaka and goalkeeper coach Kalumba Mpunga will take charge of the team in the interim.
The Bankers are currently on a nine-game winless run in all competitions and last won a match in November when they beat Cano Sport of Equatorial Guinea 5-1 in the CAF Confederations Cup playoff.
Zanaco are 15th on the Super League table with only 13 points from 12 games played but have three games in hand.
