Chiyangi who added the COSAFA title on his CV says he is excited to achieve that feet.

When asked whether he felt he was the right man for the Chipolopolo job, Chiyangi declined to comment saying FAZ is the institution that employs and so he wouldn’t comment on that.

    I’m sure education plays a big part in negotiations for overseas players. A coach with sound advice, first time I have heard this.
    I hope I’m wrong but Tapson misses too many chances, conversion rate at COSAFA will be below 20%.However,he has other qualities, he scored the crucial goal in he final, almost scored a second and made the Malawi goal keeper panic.The coach made the right decision.

    • Mingalato says:

      Someone complained about Tapson? Why?? Because he can’t speak English? Chiyangi speaks good.
      Chiyangi has firm self confidence like Wedson, that’s why he can make a better National team coach ahead of good man Mr. Chambeshi. Ba Chambeshi is a FAZ president like. In fact if Beston Chambeshi run to challenge Kamanga even Kalusha would support.

    Just have our boys speak in the language they are comfortable with and have someone interpret, better than embracing yourself trying to speak the language which you can’t

  3. Pungwa says:

    Just make sure there are interpreters. Encourage the players to speak in the language they are comfortable with , Chapwa.

  4. Kasama Boy says:

    True. Let them speak a language they are comfortable with. while they also try to learn somethings on their own.

    Football is an art, a talent, and no chains of degrees will give you that so let them be comfortable.

    I also agree with Aggrey, Soccer fans should try and accept the coach’s selection as suitable for his game plan. We all can’t be coaches. So lets give them the benefit of the doubt.

  5. Mingalato says:

    It is hard to sell a player who can’t write or speak a civilized language. Some good players you people like to be called to National team can’t even obtain a passport.
    Players learn many things during training and off pitch.
    The Olympics Center in Lusaka’s initial idea was to be a sports development careers center, but FAZ don’t ultilize it.

    I want agree with our coach. Our players need to learn English if they have dreams of succeeding outside Zambia. This is important for communication. Imagine a player who wants to play in Europe and can only speak our local languages. How will they get instructions from their coach and communicate with other players? This could be a hindrance to our players succeeding abroad. I have heard arguments like Messi, Ronaldo are interviewed in their local languages. Yes, these are internationally recognised and are their respective official languages. For us once we leave the country even for a game it has to be English. Our players should be helped and this can be done.
