Civo United FCâ€™s preparations for next season have hit a snag because of a delay by the Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) to appoint administrators of the club.
The club is failing to sign players for the new season because of lack of a direction since key positions in the clubâ€™s executive committee such as the chairperson, the secretary general and the treasurer are yet to be filled.
Civo team manager and assistant coach Dave Chirwa said in an interview on Tuesday that most club activities have halted as a result of lack of direction.
“It is the chairperson or the secretary general who is supposed to run the club and give direction, but since these positions are not filled, we are unable to start signing players as we do not know the budget,” said Chirwa.
Civo are on a rebuilding exercise as they seek to form a winning team for next season.
Meanwhile, some players from other Super League teams are trying their luck at Civo. These include Noel Mkandawire, Wyson Nkhata, Wister Phiri and Alick Lihuhu.
“We are at a standstill as we cannot operate without direction. However, the good thing is that the players have shown commitment to play for the club. However, their signing will depend on the budget and performance,” said Chirwa.
