Mighty coach Silva gives FAZ League rating

Sports Mighty coach Silva gives FAZ League rating

New Mighty Mufulira Wanderers coach Paulo Silva has given his first impression of the Zambian league.

The Portuguese-born coach made his FAZ Super Division debut on July 12 in Mighty’s 1-1 away draw against defending champions Zesco United in a rescheduled Week 16 game at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

“The football in Zambia is good and of top level but I think what is missing in Zambia is the junior league,” Silva said.

“If you want to compete well in the top division league you need a juniors league.”

Meanwhile, Silva said he was satisfied to have picked up at least a draw on his league debut.

“I expected a win I played for a win but my players mentality will start to change because we want to win all our games,” Silva said.

“My team played well and I think the one-one draw is OK.”

Migghty started brightly against Zescvo and took a 4th minute lead through their Ghana striker Rahim Osumanu.

However, Zesco hit back on the stroke of halftime to equalize through Jesse Were as Mighty held to deny the champions the three points.


  1. Mighty is on the way back! A win on Friday against Forest Rangers will be the beggining of good things at Shinde. On a personal note, off season let us work on the playing turf at our beloved Shinde Stadium. Other than that I think we are on the right path.

  2. Kamanga wabe tole uleumfwa ifyo Siliva akososa? Implement the junior league. It used to be there in the 70s
