Phiri shifts to AmaZulu

CHIPOLOPOLO assistant coach Davies Phiri has been appointed goalkeeper trainer at South Africa’s relegation-threatened Absa Premiership outfit AmaZulu.
Phiri, who had a stint with Premiership side Golden Arrows, takes over from long-serving Graham Johnson, who has been in charge since 2007.
According to club website, the 38-year-old said he was excited to have joined AmaZulu and was confident he would bring valuable experience to the bottom-placed side.
“I am feeling good. In life what I always like to say is, you always have to face a new challenge. I have been working in this area for more than six years now,” Phiri said.
The former Chipolopolo goalkeeper recently attended a six-month goalkeeper coaching course in Germany.
“I’ve also played for Zambia for 10 years and I like to impart knowledge and I’m lucky enough to have trained in Europe. In this game you always have to discover new things that you may not have known while playing,” he said.
He has linked up with Zambia striker Bornwell Mwape, who joined the Durban-based outfit during the summer transfer window from Super Division side Nchanga Rangers.
Phiri also coached at First National Division side Thanda Royal Zulu and Nathi Lions.
