Dan Dzinkambani staying put as Karonga United boss

By William Gondwa

Karonga United Head Coach Dan Dzinkambani is staying put at the club after rescinding his decision to quit the side.

Dzinkambani said they had sorted out issues that led to his resignation last week, when the team lost 3-1 to TNM Super League debutants Ekwendeni Hammers.

“Indeed I am back here [Karonga United] after meeting the team’s management. It was a hard decision but I had to rethink and agree to continue working,” he said.

Dzinkambani announced his resignation as he was about to do post-match interviews and accused some players and supporters of sabotaging his plans.

“Some of the players are not mature enough but discipline is paramount. We need to work as a team to meet our targets,” said the coach on his return.

Karonga United Chairperson Mathews Tulombolombo said meeting Dzinkambani helped them to understand the coach’s grievances over the team’s home poor run of form.

“The coach is still with us. I think he acted out of frustration because the team’s performance was awful on the day,” he said.

Karonga are on position nine in the TNM Super League, with 11 points from as many games.

However, the league is on a three-week break following Covid restrictions restricting public gatherings to 50 from 100.
