Former Chipolopolo defender Billy Mwanza is excited to have acquired his first coaching badge two months after hanging his boots.
Mwanza, the coach of the Nkana youth team, was among several upcoming coaches who attended the recently held FAZ D coaching Licence course in Lusaka.
FAZ D licence is the minimum qualification for coaches in Zambia.
“I am happy to have gotten my first qualification as a coach.As you know for you to practice as a coach in Zambia you need the FAZ D license,” Mwanza said.
He played for Lusaka Dynamos, Power Dynamos, Zesco United before retiring at Nkana earlier this year.
“I am still learning and I want to continue learning,” Mwanza said.
Meanwhile, Mwanza’s revived Nkana youth team has kicked off the season on a high note.
The club, which was registered this year, started the season by winning the opening tournament of the Kitwe District Youth Football Association before thumping Rising Stars 5-0 in their opening league match on Sunday.
