  1. LT Editor you are very lazy..surely can’t you simply google his name and show people his photo out of respect…the man not only worked as head coach for our national team in the 80s but last in RSA as a technical director for Mamelodi Sundowns, former coach of the South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland national football teams…is one of a few coaches to have guided the ‘big three’ in RSA Kaizer Chiefs, Sundowns and Orlando Pirates. LT have passion in our work.
    MHSRIP!!

  2. A very reknowned coach I must say.had a chance to meet him in south Africa when he coached giants Mamelodi Sundowns in 1996.Mhsrip

  3. I remember Ted personally. It is not about how many big teams one has coached but rather what difference a coach has made to a small team! Leicester and their Italian coach comes to mind here.

    It seems to me therefore that gold digging did not start with Jose Mourinho after all and people like Ted may have pioneered the art … may HSRIP.

  4. MHSRIP WHAT NATIONALITY WAS HE? HOW MANY CHILDREN HAS HE LEFT, WAS HE MARRIED WHAT ABOUT SOCCER DID HE EVER PLAY AND HOW DID HE GET THE KK11 JOB , SO MANY QUESTIONS BUT LIFE IS LOST MHSRIP ONCE AGAIN, I WISH FAZ CAN PAY HIS SIBLINGS ANY DUES TO HIM, IS HE A BROTHER TO BONETTI?

  5. My Granny died and LT did not let the Zambian people know. She was a champion in her community. Helped the poor, the sick, the starving including orphans. LT we like thanking our own people not scumbags.

    • How does LT know about the passing of your sweet granny when you did not give a damn about informing them…!

      May the soul of your sweet granny, that matriarch of the unknown community, rest in eternal peace!

  6. Comment: Condolences to the family. Iam an
    ardent follower of Zambian football since i was a child. Emmanuel Mwape, Abraham Nkole, Bornface Simutowe, willie Phiri. But my main idol in football is great Kalu. I want to tell him how i used to elude the mine police officers from Chambishi(By the way Chikwalakwala was my friend ) to Mafurila just to watch you. No one will take that from you. Those who hate you will rot in pain cos there thinking is low. We don’t come in this world to compete but to be ourselves.

  7. Bola ba Kalu baliteyasana nomba Uku ba selfish.
    Thats why some of us we salute charles musonda

  8. Mushota why should you be important.. shows some shallowness about you Ted was a great coach. He helped many Zambian players in South Africa… I’m sure you have never heard of Charles Musonda. Shouldn’t you just zip up at times? Buluya. Duh
