Zambia captain sent away from NT camp

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has just announced the departure of Chipolopolo skipper Kabaso Chongo for technical reasons.

The decision, made by the technical staff led by former Zamalek coach Milutin Sredojevic, will see Chongo not proceed with the national team when they travel to Rustenburg, South Africa to take on South Africa. The TP Mazembe defender is expected to fly out to his base in Lubumbashi.

“We have been informed by the technical bench in Kenya who have furnished us with their reasons. We wish the player all the best in his career and future assignments,” FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala has said.

“The team is in good spirits ahead of the high profile game with Bafana Bafana on Sunday. We also wish to encourage them to soldier on after the 2-1 loss to Kenya on Friday that was part of the preparatory matches for the November back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.”

All the parties involved have been informed with Chipolopolo coach Sredojevic wishing the player all the best in his career.
