Civo United management is yet to give caretaker coach Oscar Kaunda a contract despite his saving the team from relegation in the season just ending.
Kaunda, former Kabwafu FC coach, replaced Thom Mkorongo late in the season, after the club’s fortunes nose-dived.
For the better part of the past two months, the team was in relegation zone, but Kaunda revived it and eventually escaped relegation.
In an interview on Wednesday, Civo general secretary Rashid Ntelera, said they are yet to review Kaunda’s performance.
“The executive committee will meet next week to review his performance and plan for next season,” said Ntelera.
He, however, admitted that Kaunda has shown great capabilities as a coach and there is a chance that he might get the nod.
“My view is that he has done well. The team was in a difficult position when he took over. We nearly got relegated, but he managed to avoid that. Still we finished on bad position. But it will be the executive which will have a final say,” said Ntelera.
He commended Kaunda for what he described as great interface attributes in terms of relationship with players and the executive.
Kaunda confirmed that he is yet to get a contract.
In fact, as a technical panel, we are yet to present our report on last year’s performance. We are all on holiday. Once we resume work, we will present our report to the executive. I can confirm that I am still working on a caretaker position. The good thing is that the team is still in the Super League. It was a difficult period but we managed,” said Kaunda.
