OPINION: Sven clutching to a straw to avoid drowning

Sven clutching to a straw to avoid drowning

The best way is for Sven to offer to train local coaches and identify those with a quicker uptake. All this is done administratively and not become a newsworthy item where Sven makes it a scapegoat for not qualifying the team to afcon. The man is clutching to a straw to avoid drowning. We had coach Hachim Jadrane or whatever his name is at Buildcon who introduced GPS and all other bells and whistles where did it take him. A coach's job is 99% practical, analytics are just a decision support tool that takes up just over a percent of his job. It's not a train smash, what FAZ need to do is address the elephant in the room and that is

WHATS HAPPENING AT POWER DYNAMOS

Power Dynamos fan in tears after loss to Nkana

Firstly Fwayo Tembo is not going back to Power Dynamos and people in administration has made it clear unless otherwise. Fwayo has been pleading for a slot back since his salary outcry at Lusaka Dynamos. Fwayo Tembo left Arthur Davies with some characteristic. His  unceremoniously departure cut deep into some flesh that are still bleeding. Still though a massive cleanup is happening at Arthur Davies. Two international players are rumored out. Reagan Ndama Nkuy the Kenyan international was released yesterday.The Congolese striker in September 2018 won Zamfoot player of the week has also been shown out. On the long list are a few players already known to be on the way out and that include Govenda Simwala, Mike Banda and Peter Njobvu. Some more cleanup is looming

IS NKANA PLAYING SIMBA SC, AGAINST CLETUS CHAMA MAGIC LEG?

IS NKANA PLAYING SIMBA SC AGAINST CLETUS CHAMA MAGIC LEG?

Not only did Nkana, Zesco, Eagles and Buffaloes win but the Zambian sons elsewhere also had a week to remember: Both Augustine and Shonga scored for Pirates while Cletus Chama's magic feet was the crowning glory in Simba's victory. Zambians are so overwhelmed by the slender victories that i'm scared it will get into the heads of the players before it should. We are now talking about Zesco United vs T.P Mazembe and Nkana verses Simba SC and i just hope this is not the same attitude the players are having. In all fairness, it is not in order to start talking about Nkana v Simba when
