    This business has been unresolved for too long. Nga naikosa, simply let Aggrey Chiyangi get the job. He has done well so far. It cant be wamuyayaya in search of a coach. The ideal candidates however should be Serbian or croatian. Those guys look like they know what they are doing soccer wise. Look at the one Buildcon let slip through their hands, Orlando Pirates 9 the guy who coached Uganda and is now in Egypt )

    Zambian football has gone to the dogs. After this coach fiasco, then they will start talking of rebuilding the team which will take another 5 – 10 years if they stay consistent to see positive results. So if you are here thinking there light at the end of the tunnel, sorry to burst your bubble. Zambian football with the Kamanga administration has just been reset 15 years back. This must be the worst FAZ administration in the history of Zambia Football.
