Mulenga sees his future in coaching


Zambian football star Clifford Mulenga has decided to take up a coaching course in his native country of Zambia.

The 2017 CAF Young Player of the Year has not yet retired from football but is currently clubless and still searching for a team after parting ways with Jomo Cosmos at the end of last season.

Mulenga is doing his FAZ D coaching licence.

"I thought it was a good idea to partake in this programme because I'm also in the evening of my career," the striker is quoted by Lusaka Times.

"So I thought this will be a good starting point to getting my coaching badges."

The former Zesco United striker has played for a number of teams in South Africa, namely University of Pretoria, SuperSport United, Bloemfontein Celtic, Mpumalanga Black Aces, Ajax Cape Town and Thanda Royal Zulu.

Mulenga was part of the Chipolopolo team that won the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations tournament but was expelled on disciplinary grounds.
