News coming out of Zambia is that the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has appointed former Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund as the new Chipolopolo head coach.

Lusaka Times reports that highly-placed sources at FAZ have confirmed Igesund’s appointment.

But FAZ general secretary Ponga Liwewe refused to confirm or deny the news.

Liwewe however confirmed that a foreign coach had been appointed and that he would only announce the name once personal terms and conditions had been concluded.

As coach, Igesund won four PSL titles with four different clubs.

He coached SuperSport United last season, but parted ways with the club after a poor start to the season.

Igesund was replaced by former Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter.
