Saileti Laments Zambia’s Exit

Time Posted: January 30, 2013 2:31 pm

Ex-Zambia striker Zeddy Saileti has lamented Chipolopolo’s premature
exit from the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Zambia became the first Nations Cup defending champions in 21 years to
be eliminated at the group stage since Algeria’s failure in 1992.

In an interview, Saileti, a member of the Zambia team that finished as
runners-up at the 1994 Africa Cup in Tunisia, said it was regrettable
for the defending champions to be knocked out in the first round.

The Nkana assistant trainer has since called for changes in the national team.

“It’s bad for champions to be eliminated but in football it happens.

We tried our best nothing happened we just have to go back to the
drawing board,” Saileti said.

“Now it’s time to infuse in young players, previously (2012 AFCON) the
old players performed well but now (2013 AFCON) Zambia has done
nothing,” the former Finland based striker added.

    Sailet shut up, You remember the miss from Kalu pass. Atleast Mbesuma tried to hit the ball but you, you missed. The only thing you shud have said is we need some few fresh legs in the team. Felix, Chivuta, Chamanga, Kasonde, shud be replaced by Singuluma, Fwayo, Kola, Sate Sate and KANGWA

    indeed saileti shud shut up. zambia would ve picked up 1994 afcon if saileti was a real striker and not a pretender that he was. I recall commentators refering to him as ‘what a number 9′ and another comment was ‘this striker who is just threatening to score’

    What kind of english is this ” Zambia become the first defending Afcon champs af 21 years to be eliminated at group stage?” The appropriate sentence should be Zambia become the third Afcon defending champ to be eliminated at group stage after Nigeria (1982) and Algeria (1992). Maybe be is the Afcon 1992 the benchmark? Somebody please explain?

    Sailet, you overworked Kalu because you were a passenger in Tunisia 1994 Finals. He had to look for the ball then run forward looking for scoring chances. Just constrait on your coaching job which I think you might be good, cos bad players can always make good coaches.

    Are you saying you can only take criticism from a better player or icon? Then all of you bloggers should shut up because you’ve never won any AFCON let alone a local sports award
