Mweene hangs up his gloves 🧀

2012 AFCON winner Kennedy Mweene has confirmed his retirement from football ending a career spanning two decades. 

The former Free State Stars goalminder towards the end of last season chipped in as Sundowns’ assistant goalkeeper coach.

The Chipolopolo legend is expected to continue in that role deputizing Wendell Robinson. 

Mweene, 38, is one of the most decorated Zambian players in the last 25 years. 

He has won over 15 major titles including 8 PSL League titles, 3 Nedbank Cups, 2 Telkom Knockout  1 MTN 8, 1 NFD Title , 1 CAF Super League, 1 CAF Champions League and an  African Cup Of Nations title.

  2. What an amazing servant to his country and an amazing ambassador for the game. I really wanted to see him in the Chipolopolo set up one more time. We are still searching for a number one. I remember him saving a penalty in COSAFA cup and I also recall wondering if he was the right guy when Zambia was up 3-0 against Congo Brazzaville (thanks to a Mbesuma hat trick) only for Mweene to concede two goals and Joseph Musonda telling him off Atti ikata bola! He has grown so much. His save of the Gyan penalty, his amazing point blank save in Africa Champions league. What a great player. Amazing.
