National Division One side Nchanga Rangers have mutually separated with head coach Israel Mwanza just after eight games in the 2021/22 season.
Club President Patson Nyirenda said Nchanga have since appointed assistant coach Enos Silwimba to the role of interim head coach.
Nchanga are tenth in the league with 10 points from eight matches played.
“In order to rescue our season Exco (Executive Committee) has decided to mutually separate with the head coach Mr Israel Mwanza, Assistant Mr Benson Chiwaya and the Physical Trainer Mr Charles Mwale,” Nyirenda said.
Mwanza was re-appointed by Nchanga last February after he resigned from Chambishi F.C.
Nchanga have recorded two wins, four draws and two losses.
“The Second Assistant Mr Enos Silwimba will take charge of the team in an interim capacity until ExCo appoints a permanent head coach.”
“He will be assisted by youth coach Willie Chimpinde, while goalkeeper trainer Pascal Kasonde will continue until further notice,” Nyirenda said.
Nchanga are aiming to play FAZ Super Division football for the first time since 2018.
