Silver Strikers Coach Stain Chirwa has come under heavy criticism following the team’s recent poor showing in the first round of the 2015 K90 Million TNM Super League.
The Bankers have lost six out of the 13 games they have played so far and seats on position seven of the 15 member log table with 19 points.
Former club Chairman Macdonald Mafuta Mwale, who resigned few months ago due to pressure at his work place but now a board member, said losing six games is not healthy to a team of Silvers caliber hence a need for reinforcement.
“We haven’t performed well and to lose six games out of thirteen is not good for us. It is very important we reinforce the team” Mafuta Mwale said in an interview with a local radio on Wednesday.
But Mafuta Mwale said he is very optimistic that things will turn out for better and people should not completely rule out Silver for the championship.
On his part, Club General Secretary Fred Kalonga said the overall target for the coaches is to bring positive results.
“The overall target is to perform well and bring results. We always tell them to bring good results” said Kalonga.
He also confirmed that proposals have been made by some quarters to replace Chirwa with former Flames coach Young Chimodzi who was fired as Flames coach recently but emphasized that the current technical panel is intact.
“As of now, the technical panel is still there doing there job” said Kalonga.
Chirwa guided Silver to a league championship two seasons ago.
