Kampamba Chintu has bounced back to the Chipolopolo technical bench.

Chintu returns to the Zambia bench exactly a year after he was dropped from Wedson’s backroom staff.

The 2012 AFCON winner and ex- Kabwe Warriors defender and coach takes the place of Green Eagles Aggrey Chiynagi who has left the bench as first assistant.

Also out is physical trainer Milos Buzjic.

But second assistant Beston Chambeshi has been retained.

Chintu is currently assistant coach at Power Dynamos.

And Chintu joined the Zambia bench on Monday when the team entered camp in Lusaka ahead of next week’s hosting of the four-nation tournament at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola from March 22-25.

“I have worked with Chintu before and I think he is an asset,” Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda said after Monday morning training in Lusaka.

“He is a good guy and I think he makes it easy because he is self-motivated when he is doing his job.

“He has been there with the national team before with my predecessors.”

Chintu was first appointed to the Zambia bench by ex-coach Herve Renard in 2013.

  1. Are these the changes FAZ announced. I have nothing against Chintu but just wondering why. Was it because of failure to qualify to Russia or dismal performance in Morocco. Please FAZ just advertise the position of head coachhead hunt is not helping us. By the way would like to know if technical report was submitted to FAZ. Was it one of the recommendation to drop Aggrey. It circus unfolding

  3. FAZ must just employ its own coaches than getting from clubs. It’s a blessing that Aggrey is out because his team needs him. Nkana must also withdraw Bestone if they are serious about winning the league this season. The impression that is being given is as if the guys that have left cause the failure of the team, FAZ is being disrespectful

  5. You may label me what you want but I think our praying in the field of play is misplaced. i think the boys should pray in the dressing room and show character on the pitch. What does it mean if we fail to win while praying? That the devil has won? Chintu is a prayer leader I’m not sure of his influence on the boys apart from that. Of course the soccer experts know better. You telling me that in Zambia the Chintus are the best for our bench. Herve brought the best out of players by teaching them self belief. We need that.
