Journalist to lead Zambia?

News

Lachman who has applied for post of national team coach tells Kick Off that he will be happy if he is given the task of the reins with the Chipolopolo Boys.

The 42-year-trainer who recently resigned from his coaching post at Israeli Second Division side Hapoel Akko after a poor start in the season added that Zambia has great and talented players.

“The Chipolopolo squad is full of enterprising players, like the ‘Teranga Lions’ of Senegal who managed to reach the second round of the World Cup in Korea/Japan.

“I hope I get the job, it will be a great experience because Zambia is like Senegal five years ago. They have a number of players that can be the ‘next thing’ in football.”

Apart coaching, Lachman is a TV commentator and a newspaper columnist in his country.

Zambia is currently searching for an expatriate coach to take over from the incumbent Patrick Phiri for the 2010 World Cup qualifiers that start in February next year.
