Swiss interviewed

TALKATIVE Swiss man Savoy Raoul yesterday underwent interviews for the Chipolopolo coaching job at Football House in Lusaka.

Raoul arrived at Football House at 09:00 hours and could not remain seated but opted to move around the reception and peep though the window awaiting to face the interview panel which included former Chipolopolo coach Fred Mwila senior, Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) general secretary Ponga Liwewe, soccer analyst Ivy Lengwe and executive committee member Christopher Mulenga.

The Swiss man was ushered into the board room at 10:02 hours and endured an hour-long interview before leaving Football House at 11:30 hours.

Raoul put up a positive attitude after the interview and engaged in a light banter with the interview panelists.

He however could not give an interview to the press.

Raoul was Central African Republic coach from September 2014 till he was engaged by the Gambian Football Federation in May 2015. However, he was relieved of his duties as Gambia head coach in December 2015.

Raoul is the third candidate that has been interviewed by FAZ after Frenchman Sebastien Desabre and former South African national team coach  Gordon Igesund.

FAZ is today expected to interview a Ghanaian candidate although Liwewe remained tight- lipped over the name, saying it would jeopardize the short-listed candidates’ jobs at their respective clubs.
