FAZ Extends Sven’s Contract

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has extended Chipolopolo coach Sven Vandenbroeck’s contract beyond his five game mandate that was tied to Africa Cup of Nations qualification.

Vandenbroeck was hired on a 10-month contract in July with the specific task of qualifying Zambia to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations which he has since failed.

The FAZ Executive Committee meeting on Saturday gave the coach a 12 month extension.

Vandenbroeck took over from Wedson Nyirenda whom the public had wanted out but have extended the same hostility to the Belgian.

    its good but we want to see change to chipolopo on how they’ll pray the second chapter.

    • Aint no Loser

      Are you yanks saying its good crazy? Or are you just losers like FAZ and this coach? You are so used to losing you want the whole nation to join you in this losers mentality!
      This guy was a big flop! His contract reportedly said he should qualify us for AFCON. He failed big and you are yapping that its good? Do you know what football means to Zambians? People died for football in this country. We don’t play silly games with football in Zambia! Fire Sven! Fire FAZ!

    • Dorothy

      Apparently Zambia Reports got it all wrong. The guy ‘s contract hasn’t been renewed

  2. Apostal paul

    Yes the decision is good , changing them every time will not help us so lets wait and see his performance.

  3. Samson chilepa

    Decision is gud but give him chambeshi as vice so dat he shud not substituting prayers into 85th min, tell him also to listen to advices from soccer fan like pastor makembo. If not so, the earlier he came, the faster he,ll go……

  4. nicolas

    Its a good move coz chasing and hiring every time isn’t a solution.

  5. Vincent

    I don’t think extending his contract is a good move..this coach has already failed.we need a coach who can read games..someone who is proactive..not this man who makes substitutions on the 90th minute

    • Modric

      Poor decision can’t support such antics…..in Tonga I could sy muhondo hi ngwakamuliha coach for u to extend his contract….shame ba faz

  6. mutinta Jonathan

    Good move

  7. justice

    Let us just concentrate full time on farming agriculture than wasting colossal sum of tax payers money.

  8. Louis

    It is a good decision, all we have to do as Zambians let us support Sven.

    • Pindula

      YOU WILL SUPPORT HIM ALONE!!! WHEN NYIRENDA WAS BEING FIRED WE DIDNT HEAR YOU APPEAL FOR SUPPORT. BLOODY MUZUNGU WANGA!!

  9. Kp

    It’s time wasting,it’s not a good coach.

  10. Xerxes David

    Give him a lot of friendly games and change the the assistant coach

  11. Davies Simwinga

    Tell him to including stop including defenders in the squard ,who escort strikers to score.He also know how to read
    the game.

    • Gift mwila

      Its a good move ,but the issue late substitution .

      • Noah

        It is Pono! What is good move? You want us to get used to hiring trash? Atase!

  12. Paulo

    Macende akwe seven

  13. webster

    Gud, give him time.

    • Kunta Kinte

      What time? We have given him enough time. He is useless. Chicken george is much better than him

  14. webster kalima

    And let him include experienced players.

  15. eric chaba

    That’s great to hear that

  16. Dj one

    I don’t know wats wrong with us Zambian we even know and seen that Sven is not a gud coach but continue to give him a chance. And u faz we wanted a professional foreign coach not that stupid amateur you will never develop nonses. Mutanfyeni is not your boss is your worker kupwalala

    • Boniface

      Niumuzungu wanga che navima inferiority complexes

    • Ka- Gede

      Sven is the most useless coach we have ever hired since 1994. Who is paying his salary? Our government or Kamanga? If its Kamanga he can keep him

  17. JUNTA

    Good Move,but Let Chambeshi Be His Assistant Coach.

  18. Aint no Loser

    Are you folks saying its good crazy? Or are you just losers like FAZ and this coach? You are so used to losing you want the whole nation to join you in this losers mentality!
    This guy was a big flop! His contract reportedly said he should qualify us for AFCON. He failed big and you are yapping that its good? Do you know what football means to Zambians? People died for football in this country. We don’t play silly games with football in Zambia! Fire Sven! Fire FAZ!

  19. New year Resolution

    I will make sure Kamanga gets fired in 2019

  20. Gangsta grabs

    I Will fuck his big ass if he makes us loose are again.

  21. Chipolopolo

    Ba FAZ bena Kuwayawayafye how can they keep a bellow average coach?

  22. Abashitina

    What material do you see from this failure? Its better you take Lwandamina than this obinal .Zambia can’t qualify for any tournaments under this mam Sven what ever,we want serious coach,Zambia is a big country with history of football, how can we expected under dogs to eliminating us from the 2019 tournament,?

  23. JaneBarron

    He is too young, such that he don’t have experience for him to be the coach please.. Let him go and start playing football in his national team with lukaku and Hazard

  24. Made maxwell

    The contract has not been extended

  25. Herv Rena

    Ka sven watch out now.From today u ar on half salary.

  26. Razor

    Waste of money. Get a local coach at half the price and use the savings to pay off your water bills so bailiffs don’t pounce on you again as well as other outstanding obligations such as winning bonuses to junior teams who haven’t been paid.

  27. sinx

    what do you expect when the head of the fish is roten , ni so chabe.

  28. Mwilima fosley

    Football was already down wen this guy came into this job,wat magic do you want him to do so quick.give the guy time,otherwise he is a good coach.hw was herve successful.it was over a period of time.be patient.week in week out you are busy supporting EPL teams that at times loose so much like arsenal but u shipikisha.if u want to leave zed national team go.i am with fazs decision.go Faz go

    • Just shut up

      Iwe Mwila if you don’t know football just zip up. Herve didn’t fail to qualify for afcon. He went there 3 times. This lifutu of yours gets beaten by Mozambique! Atase! And he did not want to admit that he was a bad taste tactician He was saying our team had no talent What a hopeless coach

  29. Scofield

    Just give him a 2yez deal…

  30. Jms

    A big heart does what is required the team is okay but it needs to give the best to the best players their are some players who can play club football BUT NOT INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL eg shonga if let him be in b team

  31. bravo

    Zambianology is all am seeing in here.let the coach alone how do u expect him to qualify with such substandard class of sixth world surely.just the way they handle the ball its pathetic nowonder they fail to join English premier league too much incompetence and lack of creativity on the pitch no psychology shown when playing but biz visiting witchdoctors for what? Fibola fyamabwanga nififine weeee

  32. Jms

    bravo its true and not in such some they use that and they get selected for such duties and not true due to that some don’t use charm they play better but their efforts is not recognized

  33. D.M Mumbi

    FAZ could not be patient with WADA nor extend his contract and they want to be patient as well as extending the contract of this novice of a coach?

  34. I.phiri

    Imwe bantu kansi term of office ya bene Kamanga isila liti kuti bayende cifukwa cioneka monga uyu Sven anabadyesa mankwala ya cikondi. The Guy can’t perform but they still want to keep him,why? Twasebana pa fula nauyu muntu please!

  35. Herv Rena

    Boy sven ushipe.Naine efyo cali pa Zed paba ubwafya. Look at me now.ifya kusabaila,nanomba kwalishala amahaf yandi kuli ka Kalu.Kuwaya wayafye !

  36. PROSTITUTES

    iwe ka sven you fucked us we need our bucks vamahala vinata

  37. Jay Muller

    that one is white so give him chance u see, the problem is us Zambian we like corruption , lat the coach chose the players he want

  38. Yehoshua

    This is why we can move forward, why extending the contract if he failed to meet the target of his contract.. This Sven guy has made me to feel bad been a Zambian

  39. Peter

    Clearly if the contract was explicitly on AFCON qualification basis, then it was a biased, realistically speaking, who holds the final winning cards of a game? The coach or the players?
    Ultimately its the players on the pitch not the coach. This is not to say goes free, not. Its a team
    In all honesty, success at any endeavor is determined my many factor.
    In football, the team, team spirit, team inter-communication and inter-understanding, organization among many factors all susbstaints input its success.

    • Janta

      Is not a good Coach is a business man

    • Stop philosophizing be practical

      Ba Peter the buck stops with the coach. Moirinho was fired but all the Man u players who were not performing are still there. And now they are perfoming. What does that tell you?

  40. Edison

    Bwe….bwe…Bwe! Aku bwateni naka “seven days” kenu ka liability. Shemuna shame (x 1,000,000).

  41. The fish

    Jx fire him
