Coach Albert Mphande famously known as ‘Coach Ferguson’ has left Kitwe United to join City of Lusaka.

Kitwe appointed Mphande as coach in August and he signed a two year contract that could have seen him stay at the club at least until 2023.

Mphande was unveiled by City of Lusaka on Thursday evening after signing an 18-months contract at Woodlands Stadium.

The former Nkwazi and Nakambala Leopards coach has left the Buchi Boys sitting fourth on the table with 29 points from 17 matches.

He joined a club placed ninth on the table with 22 points after playing 18 games.

“I’m delighted to be part of this great team, I consider City of Lusaka FC to be one of the big clubs in Zambia,” Mphande said during his unveiling on Thursday.

“My objective as instructed by the Executive (ExCo) is to take the club to the elite levels of Zambian football,” he added.

Mphande has replaced former Chipolopolo star Isaac Chansa, who was acting coach when Jordi Rovira left City in November, 2021.
