SVEN Vandenbroek has promised to make the best of his journey as new Chipolopolo coach. And Vandenbroek says he is excited about the challenge of overseeing the remainder of Zambia’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. Meanwhile, FAZ president Andrew Kamanga says Vandenbroek will immediately get down to work.
Addressing an impromptu press briefing after journalists had followed him to Football House after his arrival, Vandenbroek said he was looking forward to meeting the players and coaches as he settles.
“I think it is a lovely journey in front of us and we are going to make the best of it,” Vandenbroek said.
“I am looking forward to the five games programme that we have. It will be tough but I think we can make it. We have to make it. I am looking forward to knowing everybody; the players, the coaches and everybody around in the technical committee.”
Kamanga announced that the Belgian would be meeting local coaches in the next few days to acquaint himself with his new environs.
“The coach is here and we are very happy that finally we have got a coach. He will get to work immediately in the next coming days but officially he will have a programme with the media on Tuesday at 10:00 hours,” he said.
“On behalf of FAZ, I am very happy that we have got a coach. It has taken a bit of time but we should be able to get working almost immediately. We have a very tight one week programme.”
