Kamanga won’t offer Vandenbroeck a contract
Belgian born trainer Sven Vandenbroeck will not be offered the Chipolopolo job when his contract expires next month, the ZamFoot Crew can exclusively reveal
The former Cameroon assistant coach signed a short term contract with the Football Association of Zambia and it was a performance based contract.
His six month contract was subject for review in December but according to the ZamFoot sources, ‘Sven has automatically sacked himself’ following the copper bullets’ capitulation in Maputo on Sunday.
“There’s nothing to review in December because he [Vandenbroeck] has failed to deliver AFCON qualification as per contract,” an insider said on Sunday night in Lusaka.
“The president is under pressure and will release a statement on Monday midday where he is expected to apologise to the nation over the failure to qualify to AFCON.
“He [Kamanga] had high hopes for Sven but things haven’t just worked and it’s time to part company,” adds the source.
It’s will be a tough six hours for both Kamanga and Vandenbroeck after a 1-0 shock defeat to Mozambique.
This was Sven’s fifth match in charge of the Southern African powerhouses.
The Belgian just managed to collect 4 points from a possible 12, in what is a worst ever run of any Chipolopolo coach.
In a group dubbed as ‘Cosafa Group’ after Zambia, Namibia and Mozambique were drawn together alongside West African minnows Guinea Bissau, the Chipolopolo Boys were expected to qualify to Cameroon 2019.
In addition to it being a ‘Cosafa Group’, CAF has increased the number of teams from 16 to 24 but still Zambia has failed to take advantage while minnows like Madagascar and Uganda have qualified with games to spare.
