Local coaches capable – Janza

Written by on April 21, 2019


FORMER Chipolopolo coach, Honor Janza, says people should not demean local coaches because they are qualified enough to tutor the nation team.

The former national team coach told the Sun in an interview that local coaches should never be insulted because they were highly qualified to head the national team.

He was reacting to the recent statement by FAZ president, Andrew Kamanga, when he featured on the MTN organized soccer show, that the association would hire an expatriate coach because the Zambian coaches where ill qualified for the job.

The FAZ is in the process of recruiting a coach for the nation team to replace Sven Vanderbraok.

Janza, who shared his profile, said that his record as both U20 and senior national team coach, was evidence enough to disqualified Kamanga’s notion that the local coaches were ill qualified to be hired as Chipolopolo coach.
