Kitwe football administrator Kelvin Chipili says the nationality of a coach should not be a factor as FAZ hires the new Chipolopolo trainer.

FAZ last week announced that it had begun the hunt for Sven Vandenbroeck successor as Chipolopolo coach.

Vandenbroeck eight month contract expired on March 31 after it was not renewed by FAZ following the Belgian-born coach’s failure to meet Zambia’s 2019 AFCON qualification target.

Chipili of Zanama Rovers said Zambia need an experienced coach who can revive Chipolopolo’s fortunes.

“Let FAZ hire an experienced and qualified coach with traceable achievements so that the National Team will benefit from his expertise,” he said.

“It is not the issue of expatriate or local. We have seen that some local coaches like Patrick Phiri have performed better than expatriates,” Chipili said.

The new man will be the third permanent coach in the Andrew Kamanga era after Wedson Nyirenda and Vandenbroeck.

  1. Fact, Kamanga can not pay a good coach. We are doomed with kamanga at faz. He is an accountant with an auditor’s mind so he is more concerned with profits at FAZ and not results.

    • Kalusha supporters. We shall know them by their comments. Even if Kamanga only serves one term. He has already made history as some one who dislodged the mighty untouchable Kalu. He shall forever be a hero to me

  2. Yes. He has also made History as the only FAZ president who failed TWICE to qualify our national team to AFCON. What an embarrassment!

  3. But where is the money for the coach’s salary going to come from. In the past the government through the ministry of sports used to foot the bill but now even government is broke.

  5. Appoint Beston ‘quicksilver ‘ Chambeshi to the job permanent for 6years and see where we go from there. I bet he will do a wonderful job at senior national team level. Please do not look elsewhere for a coach, just get ‘ ama Be’ …..
