Patrick Phiri ditches Forest, joins Lusaka DynamosBy Nelson Kazeze on 19 Jan 2017
FORMER National team coach Patrick Phiri has left MTN/FAZ Super League side Forest Rangers and has joined Lusaka Dynamos as new coach.
According to a statement issued today January 19, 2017 by the club’s media relations officer Kausa Mbasela, Phiri tendered in his resignation yesterday.
Club Chairman, Benhail Mukuka confirmed that Phiri, who joined the team mid-way through the 2016 season and helped the club climb the ladder from battling relegation to a top 10 finish, tendered in his resignation citing ‘family reasons’.
“Mr Patrick Phiri tendered in his resignation letter to my office this morning, (yesterday) indicating family reasons as basis for his decision. He has since joined Lusaka Dynamos Football Club,” said Mukuka.
And Mukuka revealed that Perry Mutapa, who was Phiri’s assistant, had been appointed interim coach.
Meanwhile the club has also released striker Graven Chitalu, goal keeper Makasa Mufwaya, midfielder and former captain, Joseph Kamolondo.
Winger Innocent Mwaba is set to leave the club for Kitwe giants Nkana Football Club after the two teams agreed a K40,000 transfer fee.
