Silver Strikers settle for Dutch coach


Capital city giants Silver Strikers have reportedly agreed terms with an unnamed Dutch Coach as he is expected to arrive in the country on Sunday.

This comes three weeks after the club conducted interviews for the coaching job, which saw 11 foreigners and one local coach applying.

While the club has kept a tight lid on the identity of the new coach, details indicate that none of the coaches who were short-listed for interviews succeeded. This forced the club to cast the net wider.


Inside sources at the club confided in us that, after a thorough search, the club settled for the Dutch coach who has vast experience in African football.

Silver Company Secretary Peter Masiye refused to divulge more information on the incoming coach.

’’Once we finalise everything, we will unveil the new coach. We expect to unveil him on Sunday,’’ Masiye said this week.


According to Masiye, the new coach will arrive through Kamuzu International Airport (Kia) on Sunday morning.

The new coach will replace Zambian Daniel Kabwe, who was fired due to poor performance early last season. Silver were also interested in the services of former Flames coach Meck Mwase, former Mighty Mukuru Wanderers Zimbabwean coach Rahman Gumbo and former Nyasa Big Bullets coach Nswanzurwimo Ramadhan. Mwase refused the offer but they failed to agree on terms with Gumbo and Ramadhan.

Details indicate that the new coach has managed teams including FC Platinum of Zimbabwe. He has also coached top teams in South Africa, eSwatini and Somalia.

Silver have already started preparations under the tutelage of Leo Mpulula, who was appointed caretaker coach until the end of last season.

Last season, Silver finished the season empty handed, having finished on position five with 51 points, 22 points behind league title winners Nyasa Big Bullets.
