The president of the Football Association of Zambia, Kalusha Bwalya, has insisted that Herve Renard will keep his managerial job with the national team.
"I think [Renard] is happy to stay and we'll be happy to have him keep going with the team," BBC Sport quotes Bwalya as saying. "I think he has a good project for the team. I'm happy and the people are happy with the way the team has been playing."
