Government says it is still in the dark over the appointment of the Croatian because the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has not informed them and did not consult during the recruitment process despite being a major
Minister of Youth, Sport and Arts Elvis Nkandu said in an interview in Lusaka yesterday that FAZ did not consult Government when employing the new coach and has not informed the ministry up to now.
Nkandu said nobody has the monopoly of running football and it is important that Government, which will be contributing USS10,000 per month towards the coach’s salary, is consulted.
“When we are involved, We need to know when FAZ is employing the coach, we are supposed to be involved, we are also stakeholders because we are the ones who pay,” he said.
“I don’t even know how much they have agreed, but for us, we have a commitment to dish out a $10,000. If he is getting less than that, it’s not our issue, but it is important that we, being stakeholders, are informed.
