Shinde-Faz should tolerate criticism
Ex-Zambia international midfielder Jericho Shinde has told football authorities in the country to accommodate criticism in the wake of Chipolopolo’s failure to advance to the final stage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
FAZ and coach Herve Renard have reacted angrily to criticism over Chipolopolo’s flopped World Cup campaign.
But Shinde commonly known as Russian Tanker said all stakeholders should be allowed to comment on Zambia’s failed World Cup campaign.
“I believe we should give room to criticism, we should be open to constructive criticism, that way we will help each other,” the Nkana legend said.
“Foootball in Zambia is like a religion and every one has got a role to play including supporters. All the stakeholders should be given a say,” Shinde added.
He noted that Zambian football has a bright future.
“The sky is the limit for Zambian football.”
In 2013, Zambia failed to defend the Africa Cup in South Africa and could not even qualify for CHAN 2014 despite winning the COSAFA Cup.
