Interim coach Honour Janza has cracked and opened up after enduring a logistical headache prior to Zambia’s departure for the 2015 Africa Cup.

Janza told local press on Thursday that he was disappointed with Zambia’s travel plans and was even more hurt to be heading to the Africa Cup without permanent contract.

“I am not happy with the delay in the team departure on the 15th and arrival on the 16th.It is now a challenge,” Janza said.

Janza added that he felt hurt that after qualifying the team to the Africa Cup a concrete deal was not forthcoming.

“I need a contract as way respect. I will be playing teams whose coaches have not just contract but a good contract,” Janza said.

“It shows respect when you have a contract especially when assigned with big responsibilities like going into AFCON.”

Meanwhile, Zambia finally left their South African base on Thursday afternoon after three-week pre-2015 tournament training camp in Johannesburg.

Zambia will land in Equatorial Guinea on Friday less than 48 hours before they face DR Congo in their opening Group B match on Sunday.

  2. The Problem Zambia Is You Take Politics In Football. You Are Complaining To Much Janza. For The Qualifiers You Go To Play Away A Day Before The Game Date. Whats The Difference Here? Infact This Is Two Days Before The Game. Just Go And Do Your Best. We Are Behind You.

  3. Mula you are an idiot, and I doubt you have ever taken a long distance journey in your life. It is very draining both physically and emotionally. The team also needs to acclimatise. Why do you think the SA team has been camped in a neighbouring country for more than a week? We are jokers in this country. We don’t like paying attention to detail, but expect to win the cup, when our friends pour a lot of resources into planning these things. You don’t just win by luck. Remember Renard’s words ‘the battle is won long before you enter the playingfield’. He meant the team is supposed to be adequately prepared way in advance. This sort of nonsense should not be allowed to happen. Didn’t we learn anything when the team landed a few hours before facing Cape Verde and we were embarrassed?

  4. Mula is right. These are just excuses cos the man knows he doesn’t have it to take the team forward. Which team at Afcon is complaining before the tournament.. only Zambia. They are all focused on the prize..not their contracts that they don’t even deserve. .. unless their country wins the cup.
