A KITWE based football fundi Alderman Tembo has lambasted and called on all those calling Zambia’s eminent qualification as a back door exercise.
“Stop calling Zambia qualification to AFCON as back door because the rules and regulations that governs football must be followed.
For FAZ to confirm to BBC that they are ready to replace Zimbabwe at AFCON, it means they have already made arrangements behind cameras with GRZ, coaches, players and every relevant stake holders.
“FAZ did not want to proclaim their intent to the public so that it may not seem the association is wishing Zimbabwe bad lucky ” Tembo lamented.
According to CAF and FIFA rules, Zambia will not only replace Zimbabwe should the ban comes after a game has been played at AFCON or the association say we not ready.
