  1. Same story with Zambian coaches. They don’t choose players who can win the game, they choose who is more loyal to them personally. If a player is vocal, they don’t choose them.

  2. Those guys are too old now to play competitive soccer. That’s not a coach we want. U can clearly see corruption thére.

    Sad story indeed.

  3. Where is Nyaende? Although he has not feature this season this boy has potential, he was the top scorer last season at Forest Rangers. He can run too!

  4. I think Wedson belongs to the 19th Century. This is primitive thinking from a coach. Very shameful and visionless.
