Mwape Miti: Chiyangi Can Take Zambia to 2021 AFCON

Mwape Miti

Former Chipolopolo and Power Dynamos striker Mwape Miti has backed Aggrey Chiyangi to qualify Zambia to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Chipolopolo will be battling to end their two successive failures to qualifier for the AFCON.

‘The current coaches can take us forward. They know our players well. Aggrey and Numba Mumamba should continue because they know our players,’ Miti said from his base in Kitwe.

‘Let us use local coaches. It will take time for a foreign coach to come and know our players,’ the 1996 and 2000 AFCON star said.

Zambia are in Group H together with Zimbabwe, Botswana and AFCON champions Algeria.

‘Yes we will play Algeria and Botswana but it’s not names that play football. Our aim is to qualify and we will qualify,’ Miti said.

‘Players should be selected based on performance and not names. We should not leave all experienced players. We should mix young and experienced players,’ the ex-Odense Boldklub forward said.

The top two sides from each of the eight groups will earn a ticket to the 2021 showpiece in Cameroon.

  1. Mwape Miti, I would really love to agree with you but I cannot. What Zambia needs is a coach who understands good strategy. We lack good strategy in our playing. The only strategy we have is route 1 – we used to call it “Hallo”. Just kick the ball towards the opponent’s goal.The players have technique and flair, but there is no one to bring it home and employ different strategies as the games require.

  2. Aggrey and Mumba can be Head and assistant coaches respectively. But, the is need to recruit a Technical Advisor or Technical Director who is an expatriate. This to bring in technical knowledge of the game that the local coaches may not have in particular games.

  3. Do we need mwape miti to advise who wasnt even commited to play for our national team he allways opted to play for his club together with andrew tembo for them zambia was nathing only money matterd

  4. Aggrey Chiyangi is a former Power Dynamos and Chipolopolo midfielder. As a player, he won the Nelson Mandela Cup (CAF Confederation cup) in 1991 with Power Dynamoes. He coached Chipolopolo to COSAFA glory last year.

  5. Some time i wonder whether in this country we have icibanda in this country. Surely there is no Zambian coach with to do anything mwebantu. Start looking at football as a business! The problem we have is inconsistency with our coaches and even players. We are wasting time! Instead of looking at winning chan one is talking about JUST qualifying……!Takwabafye no muntu uumoneka ifi.
