Good planning key to attaining continental glory – Mbewe

By MICHAEL MIYOBA 

RED Arrows coach Chisi Mbewe says the Airmen will need to plan well to achieve continental glory after recording great success during the 2023/24 soccer season.

Red Arrows are on the verge of winning a double this season after winning the ABSA Cup following their impressive 2-1 win over Kabwe Warriors in Sundays final at Heroes Stadium in Lusaka. 

The Airmen only need a point in the last four Super League games to be confirmed winners of both the domestic league and the ABSA Cup to become Zambia’s sole representative in the CAF Champions League. 

In an interview after the Airmen’s triumph in the ABSA Cup final, Mbewe said adequate preps will be key for the Airmen to succeed in the CAF interclub championships.

“We have won the ABSA Cup and I think it’s because of good planning, I think going into continental games this is something that we just need to ensure that we plan so well and make sure that we bring more glory to Red Arrows,” Mbewe said.

He said he was proud to have managed to lead the Airmen to victory in the ABSA Cup with support from the players and the Red Arrows executive. 

Mbewe said the best is yet to come for the Airmen who have gone 18 games without tasting defeat after picking 16 wins and two draws.

“I’m very proud. I think the best is yet to come. I need to appreciate God for what he is doing in my life. It is not because of me but God and the people I’m working with,” Mbewe said.

“I’m really happy with the way my career is coming up, I think like always the most important thing I just need to continue learning, continue being humble to ensure that I achieve more in my coaching career,” he added.

Meanwhile Mbewe admitted that winning the ABSA Cup was not an easy task for the Airmen as they faced a determined Kabwe Warriors side in the final.

Mbewe however noted that the Airmen played according to how they had planned to win the K800,000 rich ABSA Cup crown.
