Sports Chileya named Mine Police coach

Newly appointed Konkola Mine Police interim head coach Chipulu Chileya admits he has a huge task to help the struggling FAZ Division One
North side survive relegation.

Chileya, a former prolific Konkola Blades striker between 2000 and 2010 and was ex-fringe Zambia international, earlier this week replaced Dean Mwiinde who parted company with the Chililabombwe club on Tuesday.

The ex-Konkola Blades and Mine Police striker has a task to lift the club off the bottom of the table.

Mine Police have 11 points from 23 games played after recording two wins, five draws and 16 defeats.

“I am very humbled and thankful for this appointment. The executive has shown confidence in me,” Chileya said.

The 28-year- old launched his career in January after retiring while playing for Mine Police.

“It is a very big responsibility but if I apply myself well I will succeed. We wont be relegated,” Chileya said.
