The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has unveiled Lyson Zulu as the new Technical Director.
The 32-year-old takes over the role that was left vacant following the departure of Moses Sichone, who was employed as Assistant Technical Director.
FAZ general secretary Adrian Kashala said Zulu emerged top candidate from the 17 that applied for the job.
“Our new Technical Director is Mr Lyson Zulu. We had 17 applicants from the start and six were shortlisted, among them two Zambian based,” he said.
“When we had the FIFA Technical Advisor in the country, he called for all members of FAZ Technical Office. Then Mr Zulu who was the football development manager at the time.
"When he looked at the CV, the FIFA advisor was quite impressed and requested that he be included on those who were short-listed.”
Kashala added: “Mr Zulu was the best out of all and thus was offered the job as Technical Director.”
FAZ are hoping to build a Chipolopolo team that can qualify for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals which will be hosted by Cameroon.
