ZESCO United Football Club executive will decide the future of their beleaguered head coach Zlatko Krmpotic.
Justin Mwambu, an official with the club, told Zambia Daily that the executive will, in a few days decide the fate of coach Krmpotic’s future at the club.
Mumba says the executive will decide whether to terminate the coach’s contract or redeploy him within other operational areas of the club. He says the executive took an initiative to put Krmpotic on paid leave to save the club from poor performance.
Krmpotic was relieved of his duties after the club secured an important 3-0 win over Lusaka Dinamos. In the continental front Zesco was eliminated by South Africa's Supersport United in the CAF Confederations Cup.
Striker Wistone Kalengo has indicated his intention to return to ZESCO United immediately after his contract ends at A.C Leopards of Congo Brazzaville this season. If he successfully rejoins the FAZ League Champions, Kalengo will compete with Kenya's Jesse Were who was outstanding all through the season.
