Zambia have announced the appointment of Wedson Nyirenda as national team head coach on an interim capacity.

According to the Football Association of Zambia, Nyirenda would be in charge of Chipolopolo pending the announcement of an expatriate coach.

Thus, Nyirenda who joined from Mozambique’s Ferroviario de Beira will revert to his appointed role of full-time assistant national team handler.

Former coach George Lwandamina was released to focus on Zesco United’s campaign in the Caf Champions League where they are in contention for a place in the final.

"The change is immediate and we believe that Mr Nyirenda will add immense value to the national team,” said general secretary Ponga Liwewe

“In view of the fact that Zesco united are engaged in the semifinal of the Caf Champions League with two consecutive matches approaching, the Football Association of Zambia released Mr George Lwandamina to focus on this assignment which is of equal importance to the country

“We believe that he can win the Champions league and are in a great position to do so.”
