Former Zambian national team coach Honour Janza is set to face the axe at Zambian Super League side Red Arrows as he is sidelined.

The coach’s future looks bleak after the club announced on Monday that they had sidelined him on a special leave.

Janza and his two of his assistants have been sent on leave following a string of poor results in their Zambian top flight.

According to the Lusaka Times website, the 2004 champions have struggled again this term with just six wins and are slumped in 13th place.

They have 27 points from 25 games and have 14 matches left to wrap up their campaign.

“Red Arrows Football Club has sent head coach Honour Janza and two of his assistants Joel Bwalya and Nchimunya Mweetwa on administrative leave with immediate effect in order for the trio to reflect on the performance of the team,” Arrows stated.

Meanwhile, the club announced that assistant coach Chisi Mbewe will lead the side as interim coach and will be assisted by ex-Zambia duo of goalkeeper Kalililo Kakonje and striker Songwe Chalwe.

This is Janza’s second season at the Lusaka club whom he guided to a 10th place finish in 2017.

Expectations were high this season after the club held a pre-season camp in Spain, but have failed to match that experience with results on the pitch.
