Azam Coach George Lwandamina Throws In The Towel

Azam FC head coach George Lwandamina has announced his departure from the Tanzania Mainland Premier League outfit.

The Zambian gaffer has been at the helm of the two time CECAFA Kagame Cup champions for twelve months after taking over from Romanian Aristica Cioaba.

Lwandamina had a mixed start of the 2021/2022 season at the club registering three wins, three defeats and two draws.

He leaves Azam in position seven with only 11 points in eight matches.

In resignation letter to the club’s management board, the tactician never cited any reason for his exit.

“It is for the best interest of Azam Football Club that, I George Lwandamina, hereby relinquish all rights, responsibilities and privileges as the head coach of Azam Football Club, effective immediately,” the letter reads in part.

“It’s a difficult decision to take and I appreciate the cooperation and understanding of the board in this matter.

“I hope the club can continue to grow.Azam FC will always hold special place in my heart.”

Lwandamina joined the Tanzanian side barely a fortnight after stepping down as the technical director  at  FAZ Super Division club Prison Leopards where he had signed an open-ended twelve month deal.

He joined Prison after parting ways with Zesco in September after two years on the job.

The 58-year-old  ex-Zesco United coach had returned to Tanzania where he coached Young Africans from 2017 to 2018.
