Keagan Mumba, Janza In Near Punch-up at Football House
Zambia assistant coach Honor Janza and Zambia Under-20 coach Keagan Mumba are said to have been involved in a near fist of fury at Football House over a week ago.
According to sources at Football House, the incident happened in Faz general secretary George Kasengele’s office when Mumba asked Janza to choose between staying on as Faz technicial director or as Herve Renard’s number two.
“The two were involved in a heated argument that almost led to fight. Keagan was asking Janza to choose between being TD or coach because it is unclear which work he is doing every time he appears at football matches,” the source said.
“And it appears Kasengele was also agreeing with Keagan because local coaches are complaining about the way he (Janza) selects coaches for coaching courses.
“They appear to only recognize KNVB trained coaches but there are others like Kelvin Kaindu trained in England, Keagan who did training in Germany who are not looked at in good light.”
Kasengele is said to have pacified the situation after Mumba, who is also Zanaco coach, bravely demanded an explanation on Janza’s dual roles.
