Football association of Zambia ( FAZ ) Communications manager Desmond Katongo says the football governing body will pay outstanding qualification allowances to the Chipolopolo national team that participated in the 2018 African Championship of Nations (CHAN) in Morocco.
ZANIS sports reports Katongo saying in a telephone interview, today, that the due allowances will soon be paid to the team mid of this month as soon as the Confederation of African Football (CAF) releases the funds owed for qualifying to the CHAN tournament.
Katongo stated that the team that was in Morocco for CHAN were paid the win allowance while in Morocco what is not paid is the qualifying allowance to the competition.
Meanwhile Katongo explained that the association has no planes of employing a new coach for now, Wedson Nyirenda is still Zambia’s coach.
He was reacting to speculations by sections of social media claiming that Nyirenda and FAZ are set to part company.
And Katongo says FAZ is meanwhile looking forward for international friendly games in readiness for qualifying games for the coming 2019 African cup of nations that will be hosted by Cameroon.
