Azam Tigers chairperson Sydney Chikoti has said the Kau Kau are disappointed in coach Leo Mpululaâ€™s dramatic resignation.
Reports link Mpulula with a move to Civo United.
â€œI believe he has resigned. My general secretary told me so. It is a free world, people have rights. We feel he is no longer interested to coach Tigers,â€ Chikoti said on Monday.
Mpulula was not readily available for comment on Monday, but he confirmed to MBC Radio One on Sunday that he had resigned â€œbut it is pendingâ€.
Mpulula joined Tigers from Blantyre United midway last season. Ironically, Civo appear to have switched their interest from Blantyre United trainer Elia Kananji who worked as Mpululaâ€™s right hand man for many years.
Mpulula leaves after three straight consecutive losses at Tigers, the latest being a 2-0 punishment by Mafco last week.
