If Zambian media are anything to go by, Zambian U20 coach Beston Chambeshi is set to become the new coach of Nkana FC.
The Zambian Super League side is reportedly struggling to get results and are courting Lumwana Radiants coach, Chambeshi to replace Zeddy Saileti following a poor run of results.
Saileti was appointed in January this year after the club ‘elevated’ Aggrey Chiyangi to the position of technical director.
However, the club’s approach for Chambeshi comes two years after the Kitwe giants dismissed the Nkana legend for a poor string of results.

Sources lose to the Daily Mail website reveal that negotiations with Chambeshi have been successful and both parties have put aside what happened in 2015.
“In football, situations change, we cannot talk about two years ago…the club is in talks with ba Beston and it is only a matter of time before he is announced as head coach of the club,” a source to the Daily Mail said.
“The decision has nothing to do with his success at the under-20, the club just believes that he has something to offer. Following the recent results, technical reshuffles are necessary.”
Chambeshi recently led the U20 national team to the quarter-finals of the 2017 FIFA World Cup in South Korea.
On the other hand, it is mentioned that Saileti has managed four wins, four draws and three losses for Nkana to occupy the seventh position with 16 points, four behind leaders Lusaka Dynamos.
Although Chambeshi has one month left on his contract at Lumwana, he has not signed an extension and could work with Saileti as his assistant.
