Vaselin ‘application’ fails as FAZ complies with Government directive

The appointment of Serbian trainer Vaselin Jelušic as Chipolopolo head coach has died a natural death following a statement from Football house confirming that they will comply to the directive from Government to readvertise the Copper Bullets top job.

FAZ in a media release written by Communications Manager Mwazi Chanda and made available to the ZamFoot Crew revealed that they had ‘taken note of Government’s directive and will comply’.

Minister of Sports Emmanuel Mulenga was not happy with the process (headhunting) used to pick the would be Chipolopolo coach hence he advised the Association to advertise the job and follow the right Channel or else find a way of ‘issuing him a work permit’ as government would not do that because of the picking process used and the ‘poor’ track record of the said coach.

FAZ had last week announced that they would name a new Chipolopolo coach this week and media reports two days ago indicated that they had settled for the Serbian trainer.

With this new development, Green Eagles boss Aggrey Chiyangi will continue as the Chipolopolo gaffer in the interim capacity.



Press Statement
(For Immediate Release)
Football Association of Zambia
Football House,

27th August 2019


The Football Association of Zambia wishes to advise members of the public that it has taken note of Government’s directive and will comply.

This is in relation to the appointment of the Zambia national team head coach, where Government has directed that they will not support the recruitment of the recommended candidates.

Recently, FAZ had advertised the vacancies in the senior men’s, Under 20 and other similar coaching positions.
The response from local coaches was low and we wish to encourage them to apply for the position, once it is advertised.

FAZ remains committed to ensuring the best suitable candidate is employed to fill the position.
