The Ulinzi Stars have suffered a significant setback ahead of tomorrow’s Mozzart Bet Cup semifinal match against Tusker FC after learning that head coach Bernard Mwalala will leave the squad after the game against the Brewers.
Because they were focused on overcoming Robert Matano’s squad to advance to the final, where they would have a chance to win the Cup and ensure CAF Confederation Cup football for the 2023–24 season, the players’ reaction to the news has been startling.
The coach informed the squad that he would be departing early on Friday because there were just four league games left before the season was over. This caught the entire playing team off surprise.
One player told the news outlet, “No one saw it coming because we trained hard; the coach has informed us that he is leaving. Then he convened a meeting and told us that tomorrow’s game would be his last as the club’s manager.
The insider claims that the strategist stated poor working circumstances as his reason for leaving.
