The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) and the Royal Football Federation of Morocco (FRM) have renewed their memorandum of understanding (MoU) on football development.
FAZ president, Andrew Kamanga and his Moroccan counterpart, Fouzi Lekjaa, sealed the two-year deal in Rabat, Morocco.
In a statement issued to ZANIS in Lusaka today, Kamanga said part of the agreements in the MoU are anchored on promoting cooperation between the two federations on football development.
Kamanga stated that the MoU between the two football federations has immediate benefits which will give an opportunity to three Zambian coaches to undergo the coveted four-year CAF pro-license training in Rabat
He said Morocco has proved a worthy partner for Zambia as this can be seen with the preparatory camps which various national teams have had in the past.
Kamanga pointed out that under the agreement between Zambia and Morocco, the two football federations will organise international friendly matches for senior men and women’s teams as part of preparing for international engagements.
“It is yet a milestone in our football development with the MoU offering opportunities for knowledge transfer and support to grow youth and women football as well as technical support,” he said
He said FAZ will in March this year send three coaches for the CAF pro-license course.
“Additionally, Morocco has a huge pool of qualified coaches who are available to support some of our supper league teams who may seek technical assistance,” Kamanga said.
