  2. LUSAKA – Minister of Youth and Sport Vincent Mwale yesterday met the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) to resolve former national team coach Dario Bonetti’s unpaid dues.
    “I met the FAZ executive this morning [yesterday] and we will soon give you the contents,” said Mwale in Lusaka.
    FAZ parted company with Bonetti on October 10, 2011, two days after the Italian guided the Chipolopolo to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations finals, where Zambia triumphed.
    Bonetti took the matter to FIFA, who ruled that he must be paid about US$382,000.

  3. PATRICE Beaumelle has revealed that he is yet to receive his six months’ salary arrears since resigning as coach last August. And sports minister Vincent Mwale says the matter concerning Dario Bonetti’s compensation is nearing conclusion. Beaumelle took over as interim coach when his compatriot Herve Renard left to coach French club Sochaux in October 2013. A month before the start of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, Beaumelle also ditched Chipolopolo on account of not being paid, to join Ivory Coast coach Renard. “I am in touch with FAZ and government. Hope they will pay me,” said Beaumelle, who recently won the Africa Cup as Renard’s assistant. When contacted, sports director Bessie Chelemu said the government would soon process Beaumelle’s payment. “We are working on it (his payment), we will soon pay him. We needed to receive money on our request from the Treasury,” said Chelemu. And Mwale yesterday met FAZ over the impasse of the former Chipolopolo coach’s US$382,000 compensation package. “We had a meeting over Dario’s issue but there is one little consultation that needs to be done before we can announce the conclusion to the media,” said Mwale. FAZ fired the Italian coach in 2011, soon after he led Chipolopolo to qualify to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations. At the time of his dismissal, Bonetti had a contract with the association running up to 2012. Bonetti filed for a compensation claim with FIFA, FAZ and the Italian FA, claiming US$1.6 million. In April 2013, FIFA ruled that FAZ pays Bonetti US$382,000. Last October, FIFA issued a 90-day ultimatum to FAZ, directing the association to pay Bonetti or face a ban from some international competitions. – See more at:
