Nkana Vs Zesco United taking over from the Kopala derby?

Nkana playing Power Dynamos has been the biggest game in Zambian football from as far back as 1980. However this may slowly be changing or could have already changed as a new rivalry is brewing between Nkana and Zesco United. There was an unspoken rivalry since Nkana had failed to beat Zesco United from the year they were promoted to the Super League in 2004 until 2015. In 2017 however things changed after former Zesco United CEO Justin Mumba said Nkana’s time was long gone and that it was theRead More

Coach Numba Mumamba is the man in charge of the sensational Lusaka based club, Zanaco Football Club. He has done well since being appointed coach at Sunset Stadium; winning a league title in 2016 and also masterminding the triumph in what seemed to be an elusive Barclays Cup in 2017. That was not the case last season when Zanaco finished out of the top four behind Green Eagles, Green Buffaloes, Nkana and Zesco United. The team finished 13 points behind league winners, Zesco United. Having been a force to reckonRead More


OPINION: COACHES ULTIMATUMS NOT HEALTH

It emerged last week that Newly Promoted Prison Leopards F.C had given Coach Frank Miti a five match ultimatum. As if that was not farcical enough, an established Side like ZANACO F.C have given their coach Numba Mumamba a three match ultimatum to deliver or face the sack. It’s absurd that this is happening even before the league kicks off and it raises a lot of questions among them being: How did the respective club heads reach at such ultimatums? Do they trust their own coaches well enough? Are theyRead More
