SELECTION AND APPOINTMENT OF NEW ZAMBIA NATIONAL TEAM COACH: FAZ IN FINAL PHASE OF CONSULTATIONS

Following the departure of Wedson Nyirenda and initiation of a specific and thorough process to appoint a new trainer for the Chipolopolo, FAZ is pleased to announce that the process has been progressing very well and is now into the final phase which involves engagement with various stakeholders and partners. Thereafter, Football House will issue a new statement on the appointment and unveiling of the coach identified of which selection consideration was open to both Zambian and non-Zambian citizens.

The “technical evaluation” of unsolicited applications as well as other coaching experts included reviewing the requisite professional coaching qualifications, experience, ambition, knowledge of Zambian football as well as possessing a great capacity for adaptation and ability to work in a competitive team with an immediate target of qualifying the Zambia national team to the AFCON 2019.

With finality to the selection process now expected to stretch beyond this Friday owing to stakeholder engagement, FAZ will keep the media and nation informed of developments into the coming week.

    We just have to train our own coach a zambian.It is time we own every job.at one time we had Samuel & Godfrey,we can do it again.why depend on foreigners.

    • Tom London

      Tom my brother Zambian coaches are technically very poor to say the least . Dario Bonetti built that team which Herve Renard utilized to win Zambia ” s first AFCON in 2012 . To me if Dario has applied please consider his application . And if Herve Renard has also applied technically he is a very good coach and he should be brought back . Herve Renard has has the work experience in african football and technically wonderful .

  22. Norris kwenda

    Let chambeshi take over, he can manage.

  23. Hercules

    It’s time to get very serious with soccer in Zambia. Let an expat coach take over as national team coach while Chambeshi goes for further training preferably in Spain with the view of taking over as national team coach in future. Local coaches lack technical knowhow and have failed us on several occasions.
