THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) will overhaul the entire national teams' technical staff set- up and also review Chipolopolo assistant trainer, Honour Janza's dual roles.
Embattled women national coach, Enala Simbeye's future would also be considered by the FAZ technical committee.
With only contracted Chipolopolo coach, Herve Renard and his assistant, Patrice Beamulle not affected by the exercise, FAZ would review the appointments of all the coaches, medics and team managers next week.
FAZ vice-president, Boniface Mwamelo (below)said the association would do a comprehensive shake-up to improve the operations of all national teams.
He said FAZ would call for a technical committee meeting next week where all the appointments would be discussed.
In an exclusive interview in Lusaka yesterday, Mwamelo said the association would review the performance of all team managers from the senior to the Under-17 national squads, making them more responsive.
"Next week, the FAZ technical committee will be meeting to review all appointments from senior to the under-17 national teams. It will be a comprehensive shake up," Mwamelo, who is also FAZ technical committee chairperson, said.
He said team managers were a link between the FAZ management and the technical bench, hence the need to rejig the entire national teams' set up.
Being African champions, Mwamelo said, Zambia needed team managers who were more robust in the execution of their duties, adding however that, some of the team managers would be retained while those found wanting would be replaced.
The FAZ vice-president said the association believed that Zambia was endowed with quality administrators and also qualified people in various fields who could add value to national teams' management.
Mwamelo also said the tenure of appointments and job security for the coaches would be addressed to ensure they gave out their best without fear of anything and that all appointees would be given targets to accomplish for effective results.
"There will be target-driven appointments. We need effective results," he said.
Mwamelo said the future of Simbeye, whose women's squad recently failed to qualify to the 2012 African Women Championship and the Under-23 team which was coached by Lucky Msiska who has since gone back to his base in Belgium.
He said the association would also consider sending some coaches for further training where there was need.
On Janza, he said some senior coaches had petitioned FAZ over the dual roles being played by the Chipolopolo assistant coach, who is also the FAZ technical director.
Mwamelo said some coaches felt Janza's involvement with the senior squad was hampering the progress of football.
Janza was part of the Chipolopolo's 2012 Africa Cup of Nations winning squad.
