Despite experiencing delays as he returned at the helm for Zesco United, coach George Lwandamina was finally unveiled last Thursday.
The former Chipolopolo boss said he wants to win silverware with the side and said there is pressure in coaching the club, but he is ready to handle it.
Lwandamina’s return was delayed by three weeks due to administrative issues and he was officially unveiled on Thursday by the club at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
“Our expectations are that Mr Lwandamina will continue to provide that leadership that is needed for Zesco United to continue to achieve the success it has enjoyed in the past,” Zesco United CEO Richard Mulenga said.
Moreover, the man also known as Chicken, said he returned to Zesco because he shares the same ambitious as the defending FAZ Super Division champions.
“Zesco is an ambitious team and I have to be ambitious as well,” Lwandamina said to the Lusaka Times website.
“Pressure is always but how it is about how you handle the pressure.
“I will work tirelessly to achieve the goals but football being what it is, it is not always that I will bring the results that people want to see.
“But Lwandamina alone cannot do it, and others too have to do their part to bring the Zesco brand to what it wants to be.”
Lwandamina helped the club win the 2014 and 2015 league titles and led them to the 2016 CAF Champions League semi-final, the first time a Zambian club had qualified to that stage of the competition.
