In their quest to bounce back to the Zambian Super League division, Konkola Blades have kept faith in head coach Lewington Mujembe.
Blades are seeking a quick return to the FAZ Super Division as they compete in FAZ Division 1 Zone 2 after suffering demotion from the top league at the end of 2017.
According to club secretary Kennedy Chota, he confirmed that Konkola legend Mujembe has been retained while ex-Konkola Mine Police trainer Godfrey Siame takes over as assistant coach.
“As Konkola Blades FC we have re-appointed Lewingston Mujembe as Head Coach,” Chota said to LusakaTimes.
“We have hired Godfrey Siame as first assistant. Stephen Kabwe is another assistant or goalkeeper trainer. Chipulu Chileya is team manager.
“In an effort to enhance good performance the team has recruited striker Felix Sunzu from Green Buffaloes, striker Farouk Musisi from Uganda, striker Joseph Chanda of Kabwe Warriors and defender Whiteson Songwe from Forest Rangers.”
Konkola launched the Division One campaign with a 1-0 win at FQMO Mining before succumbing to a 1-0 home loss to Mufulira Blackpool at the weekend.
