Zesco United have confirmed the appointment of ex Zanaco coach Mumamba Numba as their head trainer.


Numba, 42 was unveiled at Zesco's base in Ndola on September 25 on a three year deal and returns to football since Zanaco sacked him in January following a five year reign.


He replaces George Lwandamina who was relieved of his duties on September 22 after two years at the helm.


"Mumamba is one of the finest young coaches to have emerged from the Zambian game in recent years. He has managed at the top level of Zambian football and he knows the domestic game very well," said Zesco  CEO Richard Mulenga.


"I would like to take this opportunity to welcome him to ZESCO United. His track record of success is ideal to take this club forward.”


Numba comes to Zesco with a solid record.


His five years at Zanaco saw him win the 2016 league title, finish runners up twice in 2015 and 2017 plus a Barclays Cup triumph.


He also guided Zanaco to a group stage appearance each in the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup.


Numba also served as assistant Zambia coach from 2018-2019 and guided the Zambia U17 to its debut  Cosafa U17 Cup triumph in 2017.
