Chisi Mbewe Eligible to Join COSAFA-Bound Squad

Chisi Mbewe Eligible to Join COSAFA-Bound Squad

Red Arrows coach Chisi Mbewe is being considered for a role with the national team.

Alongside Numba Mumamba, he is being considered to coach a locally assembled squad at the 2024 Cosafa Cup as Zambia aims for a third straight title.

There were concerns that Red Arrows’ involvement in the Cecafa Cup might clash with the Cosafa Cup, but the dates for the Cecafa Challenge Cup have been moved.

The tournament will now start on July 9, just two days after the Cosafa Cup final.

“As a club, we will never stand in Chisi’s way. The national team takes precedence,” a Red Arrows official told the ZamFoot Crew.

“Let’s say the dates were crashing. We would still allow him to join the national team. We still have a capable assistant in Kalililo Kakonje.”

According to Football House sources, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) wants to expose more local coaches to international experience.

Reports indicate that Kabwe Warriors coach Numba Mumanga is expected to lead the Zambian technical bench at the Cosafa Cup.

Chisi might also be included after this clarification. He led the airmen to a league and cup double last season, marking his second league title in three years at Nkoloma Stadium.
