FAZ releases Janza

THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has released its technical director Honour Janza to allow him to concentrate on his new job at Super Division side Red Arrows.
The Zambia Air Force (ZAF) has engaged Janza as Arrows coach and has offered him a two-year contract.
FAZ president Andrew Kamanga confirmed in Lusaka yesterday that Janza was no longer at Football House.
Kamanga said they want Janza to concentrate on his new job, hence releasing him from the technical directorate.
Janza was appointed FAZ technical director in 2011.
Kamanga said that Janza has been given permission to leave Football House after a request from his new employers (ZAF).
He, however, said Janza will continue working with the association in his role as Confederation of African Football (CAF) instructor.
“Mr Janza has been given a contract by Red Arrows. It means he belongs to them from now. However, he will still be working with FAZ in his role as CAF instructor.
“He will be coming whenever his services are needed,” he said.
Janza has a UEFA B coaching licence.
Meanwhile, FAZ deputy general secretary Lombe Mbalashi said Football House is still consulting FIFA before finding a replacement to fill the position.
“We have not found Janza’s replacement. This is because we are still consulting FIFA on the way forward,” he said.
The ZAF command has directed Janza to help Arrows finish among the top four next season and bring back the glory days at Nkoloma Stadium.
Arrows finished seventh last season with 46 points, 35 behind champions Zanaco.
The airmen last won the Super Division title in 2004 and the following year reached the second round of the CAF Champions League losing 9-1 on aggregate to Nigerian side Enyimba.
