Karonga United coach, Dan Dzinkambani has disclosed that he facing unnecessary pressure from other people within the team which is forcing him to consider quitting the job.
On Saturday after going down 3-1 to Ekwendeni Hammers, the former MDC player told members of the media during post-match interviews that he is going to quit without stating reasons.
But on Monday, Dzinkambani said he was still Karonga United coach and that he was seeking audience with the team’s chairperson, Matthews Tulombolombo to express his worries before a decision is made.
“Currently I still cannot state the pressure I am getting from other people until I meet the chairperson and maybe then we can bring them out to the public together. Many thought I said I was going to resign due to the poor performance and especially the loss to Ekwendeni at home that is not a reason. There are lots of things behind,” he said.
Dzinkambani explained he was available to train the team on Tuesday as they will be resting this weekend.
The team’s chairperson could not be reached for a comment, but unconfirmed reports indicate the two sides had a meeting on Monday to discuss the same.
