Kabwe Warriors in search of a new coach


CAF Confederation Cup-bound Kabwe Warriors have advertised the position of head coach ahead of their return to the continental showpiece.

According to a statement, the club is looking for a coach with a CAF A license.

The people interested in the position have been advised to submit their latest detailed CV with certified copies of their academic and professional qualifications not later than Wednesday 7 July.

Kabwe Warriors interim head coach Ian Bakala who took over from Levy Chabala back in April does not have a CAF A license required to sit on the bench for a CAF Champions League or CAF Confederation Cup.

CAF raised its standards for a coach to be admitted to the club’s bench, for the 2020/21 CAF Interclub season, all clubs had to ensure that their head coach complied with these licensing requirements.

Through the implementation of the CAF Club Licensing system, all head coaches of clubs engaged in the 2020/21 edition of the Champions League and Confederation Cup must have the “CAF A” coaching license.

In addition to the “CAF A” license, coaches holding a “PRO license” from a valid sister confederation are also eligible to take part in CAF club competitions. To be able to coach at a certain level in Africa now, it will therefore be necessary to enroll in a licensing course and obtain a diploma.
