Chipolopolo coach Honour Janza may be relegated to coaching the junior national team so as to pave way for an expatriate coach reportedly being recruited by a sports agency connected to FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya’s wife Emy Casaletti.
A source at football house has disclosed that three names have been shortlisted and all that is holding the recruitment are funds. Of the three, two are from Europe and one is from South America.
According to the source, the sports agency will be entitled to 10% commission from the foreign coach’s earnings when fully employed. Part of the terms being crafted for the expatriate is to take the Zambia national team to the 2017 and 2019 Africa cup games and the 2018 world cup.
“Two are from Europe while the other one is from America and they have to qualify the team to 2017 and 2019 continental games as well as the 2018 world cup. So Janza will have to be taken to the junior team and also be one of the technical people to the coach. That is why coach Janza has not been given any contract,” said the source.
Last week, Bwalya ‘s bid to change the constitution to make him FAZ life president failed during the soccer body’s AGM in Kabwe. He faces a big challenge from soccer administrator Andrew Kamanga during the elective AGM next year.
