Germany offers Zambia Football scholarships


Germany will provide training scholarships for Zambian soccer coaches, referees, administrators and team doctors in that country, Times of Zambia reported Tuesday.

It quoted president Teddy Mulonga of the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) as saying in Lusaka recently that the scholarships have already been sourced in Germany for the September-October Fall at the University of Leipzing, sports faculty and the other one in September under the Germany Football Association leading to the UEFA ‘A’ coaching license.

“These will become an annual phenomena. Your association will continue to access quality training opportunities world-wide. It is important that we create a cross pollination of knowledge, to this end, we are grateful to the German embassy for the support rendered,” he said.

In another developement former president Dr Kenneth  Kaunda said that the Zambian National team needs a foreign coach. Speaking when he was being interviewed by the BBC on his birthday, Dr kaunda said “I think Zambia needs a foreign coach to be able to help our team catch up with the trend across the continent.”


  1. Following the comment made by Dr Kaunda on the issue of Zambia needing a foreign coach, i think its not right we have a coach in Peter Kaumbas quality who can really take this team to another level. After all he consistently developed and produce the results for the under 23 which is actually 90% National Team at the moment, it includes guys like Mbesuma. I believe he knows these guys well enough to take us to another level.
