It’s either Grant resigns now or wait for his contract to expire

The Football Association of Zambia, FAZ wants Avram Grant to resign as Chipolopolo Boys coach, the ZamFoot Crew can exclusively reveal

But the 69 year old has insisted that he is still right man to take the Chipolopolo Boys forward.

Pressure is mounting for FAZ to sack Grant following Tuesday’s 1-0 home defeat to Tanzania.

Zambia has gone 540 minutes without a win.

According to the ZamFoot Crew sources at Football House, FAZ want ‘Grant out’ but doesn’t want to ‘create the mess’ with regards to compensation.

“As you might be aware there’s still Asanovic’s compensation case. If FAZ was to sack Grant then the association will have to pay him for the remainder of his contract,” a ZamFoot Crew source said.

FIFA has ordered FAZ to pay Asanovic about $1.1 million as compensation.

The Croatian didn’t complete his 4 year tenure as Chipolopolo coach.

“Actually FAZ wanted Grant to leave after the African Cup of Nations but they scared of another FIFA lawsuit.

With that background, the waiting game could be the more reasonable approach.

The former Chelsea and West Ham manager is remaining with about 6 months on his initial 2 year deal he signed in 2022.
