Football Association of Zambia supremo Andrew Kamanga is in Europe to scout for a new Chipolopolo coach, Zambianfootballnews.com can reveal.
The FAZ boss is in the soccer mad nation of Croatia where he is on a Football Exchange, Exprience and Organization Mission and as expected the ever busy Zambia FA supremo did meet with Football legend Davor Suker who is President of the FA in that Country.
President Kamanga expressed delight at his visit which was captured by the FAZ Media Team with expressions below:
“This visit has been monumental and it has given me an insight into how football is organized in Croatia and I am grateful to president Šuker for his hospitality.”
“Croatia finished third in the world in 1998, and those players passed on their knowledge to the current generation that has brought Croatia the silver medal [World Cup 2018].”
“In Zambia, we have a lot of talented players, and our biggest challenge has been making sure that our talents become world-class, we need the coaching and the technical structures to raise our game to a level where we can compete regionally and globally. We have seen the results that Croatia has delivered.”
“They are second in the world now, but I will not be surprised if they make it to the top and become number one because all of the structure and the systems are working.”
“If we can replicate what you are doing here in terms of coaching education and youth development, we believe our football will be transformed, and then we can also compete at a world level. I hope we will continue our cooperation.”
All the best Mr. President
