LUSAKA– NAPSA Stars have amicably parted ways with coach Peter Kaumba.
Kaumba leaves the club after 15 months at the helm of the FAZ Super League club.
Napsa chairperson Richard Nawa thanked Kaumba for the services rendered to the club over the last two seasons he has been with the club.
“Mr. Kaumba did not renew his contract with the club and the two parties amicable decided to part ways,” Nawa said.
“A new coach will be named in the coming week.”
And Nawa revealed that Sakala wil remain deputy coach while the players list for the 2014 season will be announced next week.
Forest Rangers coach Hector Chilombo and Zanaco trainer Keagan Mumba are believed to be the front runners for the vacant Napsa post.
Meanwhile, Kaumba took over at Napsa in October 2012 following the dismissal of Patrick Phiri under whom he worked as assistant coach.
He later led Napsa to lifting the 2012 Barclays Cup title on the Lusaka-based clubs way to finish ninth that same season.
However, the 2013 season proved to be a different case for Kaumba and Napsa when they spent most of the year in the bottom seven section of the table.
Kaumba was subsequently suspended in October while assistant Evans Sakala was handed temporal reins on Napsa’s way to finishing two places outside the relegation zone in 12th place. – supersport.com
