Southern Region Football Association (SRFA) Premier League side Prison United FC have parted ways with coach McDonald Mtetemera at the expiry of his two-year contract on November 30 2015.
In an interview on Wednesday, both parties confirmed the development.
However, Mtetemera expressed regret with the way the matter was handled by his former employers.
He claimed that United management notified him verbally, two days before the expiry of his contract.
Said Mtetemera: “I am disappointed with the way they handled the whole issue. It was supposed to be official communication and I expected this to be done three months before the contract expired. But they took a different approach which has left me in suspense because I am supposed to move out of the institution house anytime.”
But speaking on behalf of the club, one of the press officers at Zomba Central Maximum Security Prison, Julius Magombo, dismissed Mtetemera’s claims.
“He was given the official letter on the final day of his contract. Management followed all the necessary procedures to communicate with him on the matter. It is not true that we have breached any contractual agreement. He played a good role in ensuring that the team remains afloat in the Premier Division. We wish him all the best,” said Magombo.
He added that the team is now under new coaches who were understudying Mtetemera during his two-year stay with the club.
United are lying fourth on the log table with 62 points from 35 games played this far.
Before moving to Prison United, Mtetemera coached several clubs such as Blackpool and Azam Tigers.n
