Linos Makwaza has now been confirmed as Napsa Stars head coach.
Makwaza has been interim coach since last September when his ex-boss Tennant Chilumba was sidelined following a string of poor results.
Napsa media officer Gwen Chipasula said Makwaza’s contract will run until the end of the 2018 season.
He will be assisted by Dabwitso Nkhoma and Harry Milanzi who will be his first and second assistant coaches respectively.
Napsa finished 7th under Makwaza last season when he also guided the Lusaka club to a runner-up finish in the 2017 Barclays Cup that they lost 2-1 to Zanaco.
His previous clubs in charge include Nkana and Zamtel FC.
