“With our club looking at working on the area of financial sustainability, I am confident this is indeed a great appointment,” Chundu said.

Liwewe has thanked NAPSA for the opportunity and has set his sights on the league title in the three years he will be at the club. 

“I want to thank NAPSA the  company for engaging me, they have a huge vision for football and have delivered as a company so it is only right that the club reflects the number position of the company so as a club that’s our target as well,” he said.

  1. I hope he will supplement progressive ideas currently being implemented at midland clubs. The copperbelt needs fresh ideas in football admimistration. In a nutshell football is being administered poorly with no fresh ideas on how to lift football from its doldrums! Youth football has been neglected on CB in the past 10 years. *They exchange the same old players from club to club, with no new notable talents coming on board!* How does one explain the lack of opportunities for young players of note to be attached to European clubs?!
    Club officials on the CB ma ‘fontini’, still stuck with ideas from the past. ‘Bu shimaini’ bwa chilamo.
