Dutchman Nico Labohm

DutchmanDutchman Nico Labohm has been hired to help under-fire Zambia coach Honour Janza.

Labohm arrived in Zambia on Tuesday morning and was unveiled at a press briefing at the National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka just before afternoon team training by FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya.

Kalusha said Labohm will work under Janza as his assistant.

“We have added one more coach to the technical group Mr Nico Labohm from Holland he is a very experienced instructor and coach,” Kalusha said.

“He has been to Hong Kong, Suriname, Ukraine, South Africa and Tunisia.

“He has been here in Zambia before and it was important for us find somebody who knows a little about the terrain and the situation that we are in.

“We are in a privileged position as Zambia in my opinion because of the name that we have. Mr Nico Labohm thought duty-bound to come at short notice to help the team and he will come to add and subtract and do everything possible that he knows for the betterment of the team.”

Labohm’s deal is short term and will expire at the end of the 2015 Africa Cup Group F qualifiers on November 19 when Zambia play their final game against Cape Verde at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
