George Lwandamina Returns For Third Spell As Zesco United Coach

George Lwandamina has been appointed head coach of Zambia Super League giants Zesco United for the third time.

The former Green Buffaloes, Red Arrows and Kabwe Warriors coach took charge of Team Ya Ziko between 2014-2015 and 2018-2020.

He has signed a three-year deal that will see him at ZESCO United until 2025 with an option to extend.

“Lwandamina is one of the best coaches to grace the Zambian game both at the national and international level. He has a proven track record which can be traced back to his time at ZESCO United where he delivered four league titles and the 2016 CAF Champions league semifinal finish,” said Zesco United chairman Maxwell Saya.

“His vast managerial experience both at domestic and international level makes him the right man to lift the club from its current state.”

Lwandamina takes over the role from Mumamba Numba after the team failed to progress in the CAF Confederations Cup competition following a defeat to Royal AM of South Africa.

The 59-year-old was previously in-charge of another Zambian Super League side Kabwe Warriors, a position that he took in June after parting ways with Tanzanian side Azam FC.

He had joined Azam after stepping down as the technical director at  FAZ Super Division club Prison Leopards where he had signed an open-ended twelve-month deal.

The experienced gaffer had switched to Prison after parting ways with Zesco in September 2020 after two years on the job.
