TNM Super League leaders, Azam Tigers, have named Richard Fosko as their new Head Coach, ending a long search that started before the end of last season.
Tigers finished the 2017 season and started the current season without a coach after the resignation of Patrick Kulemeka.
Both Tigers Technical Director, Robin Alufandika, and Fosko confirmed the development on Friday.
Fosko said the two parties have sealed a year-long deal.
The coach admitted that he expects to face a challenging task as Tigers have made an impressive start to the season which includes their well-deserved 2-0 win over defending champions Be Forward Wanderers.
“Nevertheless, I am happy to be in charge of Tigers and I am ready for the task,” he said.
Fosko, who has a Caf A coaching badge, had stints with several Premier Division sides such as Mchinji Boma and Chikwawa United.
Alufandika said Fosko’s qualifications and ability to work with young players inspired Kaukau to engage him.
“The long wait is finally over. We now have a coach who meets aĺl the requirements and is good at nurturing youngsters,” he said.
The development comes after Tigers Chairperson, Sydney Chikoti, recently expressed disappointment with some coaches who shunned his club after earlier showing interest to join.
