Zambia’s captain Kabaso Chongo sent away from Chipolopolo camp

Zambia’s captain Kabaso Chongo has been excused from the on-going international friendly matches for technical reasons.

Kabaso has been sent away following Zambia’s 2-1 defeat to Kenya in an International friendly match in Nairobi of Friday.

“Following the decision of the technical bench, Chongo will not proceed with the rest of the team to South Africa where they will play Bafana Bafana on Sunday in Rustenburg,” FAZ said in a statement.

All the parties involved have been informed with Chipolopolo coach Milutin Sredojevic wishing the player all the best in his career. The TP Mazembe defender is expected to fly out to his base in Lubumbashi.

“We have been informed by the technical bench in Kenya who have furnished us with their reasons. We wish the player all the best in his career and future assignments,” FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala has said.

“The team is in good spirits ahead of the high profile game with Bafana Bafana on Sunday. We also wish to encourage them to soldier on after the 2-1 loss to Kenya on Friday that was part of the preparatory matches for the November back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.”
