I am disappointed with the wrong perception created by FAZ to the outside world-Sven

Outgoing Chipolopolo coach Sven Vandenbroeck has broken his silence on his partying ways with the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) saying he was disappointed with how the association had painted him to the outside world.

The Belgian national, whose contract comes to an end on March 23, when Zambia hosts Namibia in a dead rubber Egypt 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier said a rare press statement that he had already told FAZ president Andrew Kamanga that he would not renew his contract.

“Ten days before the press release of the federation (that they will not renew my contract), I already communicated clearly to the president that it would be better to not continue and extend the contract,” he said.

“In fact on 14th February, 2019 I wrote a message to the president that I had resigned.”

He added: “On 18th February 2019, we had a formal meeting to deal with issues, after the president came back from duties abroad. In this meeting we discussed to behave like adults and we all agreed to fulfil both sides of contractual obligations until the end of the contract on 31/03/2019, but not continuing beyond. I am disappointed with the wrong perception created by FAZ to the outside world.”

Vandenbroeck said he was given the impression that FAZ wanted him to continue but has been duped.

He also said the social media statement attributed to him that Zambia would never win any trophy was false.

“I want to distance myself from many rumours on the net and social media . I was certainly not in South Africa last week, and I did not say Zambia will never win a trophy again. I am convinced that this country has potential. It is just a matter of good management, organization and maximizing that potential,” he said.

The Belgian was signed up on a nine months performance based contract that was tied to qualification to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

He managed one win, a draw and two losses to lie bottom of the group with one round of matches to spare.

      Ba FAZ nabo ba tulo sana. Umuntu alichita resign instead of accepting the resignation and using that remaining time to look for another coach you keep him and pay him for doing nothing? Whose money are you wasting like this iwe Kamanga??

      Faz I think they just want to eat money cause to look Sven has definitely tried the management should just say they don’t have money to pay him cause this is total rubish of bringing these local danderhead coaches

  2. The Pastor

    Sven did not cause us to fail to go to Africa cup. We just lost it from the beginning. That game we lost to Mozambique at home was the one which brought a lot of problems. Just from that game I knew that we were out.

    • Nyoi

      The coach that destroyed the national is the worst coach Zambia has ever had and his name Wada…. That useless coach

      If FAZ was serious they should have commissioned an enquiry into why there are so few goals in our league. Come up with a strategy to make teams want to score. Knowing these Africans they are still waiting for such plans to come from Europe.

      • Hunter Shilesa

        A commission to find out why there are fewer goals scored by yoyr teams!!! You made my day. Commission of inquiries are not set up for such things. Instead just ask me why and i will tell your faz why and what to do. 90 minutes your boys spend running like chickens on the pitch with less than 3 shots at goal on average for the whole 90 minutes . Solution is to teach your boys to kick the ball between those two posts on the football pitch, most importantly from range. This way they will be able to score and goals will become many.

    Its True FAZ Did Not Think Properly Or Maybe They Did It Out Of Hate, He Told You His Mind That He Is Not In A Position To Renew The Contract But Why Did You Say It Like That To The World As If You Did Not Want Him For Some Reasons? Thats Nonsanse, Childish Infact. No Wonder Our Team Is Hopeless Now, Its Because Of The Way Kamanga And Your Fellows Handle FAZ. The Couch Is Not A Problem But Faz. Why Ma Resignations Mu FAZ?

    FAZ should learn to handle issues wrt coaches in a mature manner and with respect to coaches. This is what WADA complained about. Now it is Sven complaining. His contract is straight forward. He failed to qualify Zambia for AFCON as detailed in contract and contract expires at end on this month. Hence we part company in good terms

    first and foremost both Kamanga and this Belgian coach are useless. Faz has failed to run the football affairs in Zambia. Kamanga’s admin is rocked with scandals and resignations. it’s time the entire Faz resigns. They behave like they run a consortium known as Mungulu holdings.

  12. James

    Those who are supporting Sven are suffering from inferiority complex. In Belgium where he comes from he would have resigned on moral grounds soon after the last Mozambique game. Mwila ka sapota ka 7.

    Assessment is done from results of the performance. Positive or negative results. That’s what one deserves.

  16. Corruption now will be worse

    Zambian football needs a wider vision to develop.We need straight minded people not those who want to get into football administration for selfish purposes.The league system is what needs to be sorted,otherwise we shall always lag behind. A national coach needs good players and these can only come from a competitive league.

  17. Muyo olimba

    we need a chinese company to invest in zambian football.

    Our football team needs fasting

    Now the information back fire you faz vain said he write a resignation letter and you failed to sign on it to day you said you are on forsed leav why.

  20. Joko

    Wide consultation is needed before recruitment of a foreign coach. Next time FAZ must be careful, one of these days you may end up recruiting a lunatic.

  21. Jayz

    Kamanga and the executive yaba if you want progress let the coach do his part because that coaching part you can’t do it let that part to the one chosen otherwise in the end you start cheating, and while trying to show Zambians that the coach is to blame we brainstormers have already seen your true colours CHANGED FOR BETTER

  28. Jms

    Faz we need a coach and you need to open your eyes and your ears very very well , a good candidate has to be picked from the application produced . But be very very attentive if that picked candidate fells to produce results don’t start by saying bad words you are just showing your ignorance just fire him by not showing any bad committed or if he resigns respect his decision you will be recognized in society but when you show your rubbish according to your low mind iam sorry mwalakwa baba you should be punished now the thing is you are the so called bosses be careful election are coming you are fortunate if their was a chance of impeachment you could have gone good luck condemned (proper Zambian)

  29. Jms

    THESE WORDS MAY SEEM TO BE HARSH BUT TO A DEMOCRATIC PERSON THEY ARE TEACHING AND VERY HUMBLE we were in a very right path but we don’t know what went wrong just after 2013
