Sven Vandenbroek will be officially unveiled as Chipolopolo coach on Monday.
This is Vandenbroek’s first head coaching job after working as ex-Cameroon coach Hugo Broos’ assistant under whom they won the 2017 AFCON title.
He also had short club stint in Tunisia as deputy coach at Club African in 2013.
“The Football Association of Zambia is pleased to announce the appointment of Sven Vandenbroek as new Coach of the Zambia National Football Team. Vandenbroek will be unveiled to the media on Tuesday 10th July 2018 after his formal presentation to the Minster of Sports on Monday,” FAZ said in a statement.
“Following his presentation to the media, Vandenbroek will immediately get down to work and meet all 20 Super Division coaches from whom he should get insight on the state of the league and commence his players’ selection.
“The whole week, he will attend training sessions of various Super Division clubs and watch league games as well as the Zambia Under-20 qualifier against Burundi (on July 14 in Lusaka).”
Vandenbroek takes over from Wedson Nyirenda who quit in May to take up the head coaching job at South African PSL side Baroka FC.
His first official fixture will be this September when Zambia visit Namibia on match -day-two of the 2019 AFCON Group Qualifiers.
Zambia and Namibia both have zero points following similar 1-0 home and away Group defeats against Mozambique and Guinea Bissau respectively in June, 2017.
