The Zambian government has ordered the technical bench of the national team should be paid early before the next competitive fixtures.
Sports minister Emmanuel Mulenga made these assurances to Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic and his technical bench assistants during a performance report meeting in Lusaka.
“I have actually instructed the Director of Sports John Zulu to make sure that you are paid in good time. For October you need to be paid before the end of next week,” Mulenga said.
The Minister also assured the members of the coaching team that the government and the citizens have complete faith in their abilities.
Chipolopolo will face the Zebras of Botswana twice in November as they search for a maiden win in Group H.
“The games we are going to have on 12 and 16 November are do or die, there is no losing,” added the Minister.
“We have done our part as the government so it’s up to you and your boys to do your part and make our soccer fans proud because they want us as a country to return that glory we had.”
