The Brighton and Hove Albion under 9 team’s new coach is former Chipolopolo captain ENOCK MWEPU.
MWEPU was appointed after being forced to hang up his boots as a professional player at the age of 24 due to a hereditary cardiac disease.
The club is pleased that MWEPU chose to stay, according to club head coach ROBERTO DE ZERBI.
He claims the Club will make use of his expertise to aid in the development of the young players.
The Club was eager to assist MWEPU with the next phase of his career, according to Chief Executive and Deputy Chairman PAUL BARBER.
After a particularly trying period for him and his family following his diagnosis, BARBER stated that the club is thrilled that the midfielder has accepted the opportunity to join our youth coaching team.
Prior to relocating to England, MWEPU played in all 81 of Salzburg’s Champions League group stage matches in the 2020–21 season while making 81 League appearances across four years in the league, totaling 11 goals and nine assists.
In the 2021 OFB-Cup Final, he also contributed to the scoring with a goal and an assist in a 3-0 victory over Lask. After making his debut for Zambia in September 2017, he was a regular with the team.
MWEPU joined Albion in 2021 and made 27 appearances before being forced into retirement in October 2022. During that time, he scored three goals.
