Mweene Starts Coaching Lessons


Kennedy Mweene has disclosed that he has begun preparing for his future off the pitch and is undertaking a goalkeeping trainer’s course.

The Mamelodi Sundowns and 2012 AFCON winning goalkeeper recently said he was going to take a sabbatical from Chipolopolo duties.

“I said I am moving away from the national team for some time, or to be excused because at that time I needed to concentrate on my coaching course I am currently doing with a Spanish institution. I sat (and learned) under the likes of Kalilo Kakonje, Davies Phiri among others,” Mweene said.

“I stayed on the national bench for four years watching all these guys and that’s how I got my experience. In as much as I am playing, I am also training as a goalkeeper coach. I want to get the right qualifications and combine them with my experience to instill knowledge in the talent young goalkeepers.

“We have many talented goalkeepers in Zambia, but we are lagging behind in terms of qualifications for goalkeeper coaches and my desire is to be a goalkeeper coach.

“I started to do this training while I am still active in goal so I can combine theory with practicals.”


  1. Excellent. Wish you all the best. And set a good example of an independent and productive life after a successful playing career. And if you rise to a position to promote Zambia. Please promote Zambia unlike some selfish Zambian who voted against Kalaba so that he can be the only Zambian with such an award.

  2. Most former national team players got their coaching licenses under Kalusha no Bwalya’s Dutch programs. There has never been any coaching clinics since Kalu left FAZ

  3. Wish you all the best we muntu wesu umwina Nkana. I am very sure you will make a very good coach because we all know you dont like football. You love it!. The Chipolopolo job will be waiting mwana wesu. Go Mweene Go! The whole Zambia loves you!

  4. Your friend Benny McCarthy has the UEFA coaching badge but then made the mistake of going into a job straight away…I hope you take your time.

  5. Good luck and I hope you have invested well from all these years
    Of hard work in diaspora. Unlike
    Others who end up struggling to

  6. Goodluck let’s hope you have invested
    Your hard sweated money from diaspora. Unlike Others who are back
    But have nothing to Start with.

  7. Great idea, we are behind in football because there is no school that supports Sporting activities fully (thats why there are no accademies) and if poeple can think like this to combine the practicle aspect of sport plus theory we could forge ahead and become the best. its an inspiration to the young ones.
