Zambia side Napsa Stars have confirmed that Mohamed Fathi has been placed on administrative leave following a string of poor results.
The club has also announced that technical director Honor Janza, Logistics manager Gift Chaipa and club administrator Daniel Chiboleka have also joined the Egyptian on administrative leave.
“Members of the Secretariat placed on leave include the Technical Director, Mr. Honor Janza, Logistics Manager, Mr. Gift Chaipa and Club Administrator Mr. Daniel Chiboleka,” the club said in a media statement.
“The development comes after a string of poor performance by the team which has brought serious concerns to the sponsors, the board, fans and other stakeholders.
“First Assistant Coach Chintu Kampamba will take over the team in an acting capacity to be assisted by Donwell Yobe, Lameck Nyangu, and Sipho Mumbi until further notice,” they said.
Former Zambia defender Kampamba ‘Modibo’ Chintu will act as head coach and will be in charge of Wednesday’s MTN Super League match against Kabwe Warriors.
Chintu was roped in by Janza and Fathy mid-way through the season from his boyhood club Warriors where he was an assistant to Chabby Chabula. This is the second time the AFCON winner will be at the helm of a club after his assistant role at Warriors and Power Dynamos.
