Tripple B fire Friday Phiri


PREMIERSHIP debutants Tripple B have sacked head coach Friday Phiri after 10 with the club currently anchoring the log standings.


Phiri guided the league newcomers to just one win with the other win coming in his absence, while losing seven matches.

In the team’s other loss, he was away on bereavement.

Amayenge became the second top-flight coach to be sacked this season after Black Rhinos fired Nesbert Saruchera earlier in the season.

His dismissal leaves assistant coach Peter Manoti in charge of the team and he will take charge against Caps United today.

Club secretary Gibson Makande confirmed the development to NewsDay Sport.

“We have relieved the coach of his duties and his assistant Manoti will take over immediately starting with tomorrow’s (today’s) game against Caps.

“The circumstances we find ourselves in have left us with very little choice, but to make a change,” Makande said.

Amayenge’s final match in charge was an away 1-3 defeat at the hands of fellow strugglers Hwange.

Phiri will, however, feel hard done by his employers as his latest defeat came against the backdrop of his charges failing to train the whole week demanding that the club pay them their outstanding salaries back-dated to March.

Morale has been at an all time low at Tripple B with the team being forced to play some of their home matches against the league’s so called crowd pullers away from their favorite home ground Dulibadzimu Stadium.
