Civo United have fired their technical panel as they look forward to starting a new lease of life in the Chipiku Central Region Football Association (CRFA) Premier League.
The firing of the technical panel has also coincided with the expiry of coach Charles Manda’s contract.
Those that have been relieved of their duties according to vice-general secretary Ronald Chiwaula are assistant coach Charles Ben, team manager Austin Nyodo, assistant team manager Gerald Mhango and team doctor Happy Tembo.
“This is part of the rebuilding exercise because we intend to return to the Super League next season and the executive committee will not be spared, some heads will roll and it may include me.
“But the door has not been shut completely for those that have been removed from the technical panel. They are free to reapply and some of them can be re-considered,” said Chiwawula.
He added: “We want people who will be committed and have the right attitude. It cannot be business as usual, we have to change the way we operate because government is sacrificing a lot by sponsoring the team when the money could have been channelled towards other important areas.”
He said the position of coach will be advertised in the media while the process of filling other vacant position will be done as soon as possible.
Civo were relegated from the top-flight league at the end of last season after finishing second from the bottom.
Ben yesterday said he could not comment as they were yet to be officially informed about their dismissal.
“We are just hearing about it but we are yet to be served with the letters,” he said. n
