Augustine Mulenga Is 2017 Footballer Of The Year

Zanaco winger Augustine “Diego” Mulenga has been voted FAZ/MTN 2017 Footballer of the Year.

Mulenga beat league top scorer Chris Mungalu and teammate Toaster Nsabata.

The awards were revealed tonight at Moba Hotel in Kitwe where Super Division teams were also given some money for their participation in the league.

Beston Chambeshi was named best coach ahead of Numba Mumamba and Bilton Musonda. Chambeshi inspired Zambia’s fairytale winning the Africa U-20 Cup in January and guiding the team to the quarterfinals of the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Chambeshi was also instrumental to securing Nkana a Confederations Cup spot. The team had struggled in the first half of the season before Chambeshi returned to guide them to a third place finish in the league.
