Ian Bakala confirmed as new Forest Rangers head coach

Zambia Super League side, Forest Rangers have confirmed the appointment of Ian Bakala as the new head coach.

Bakala takes over from Tenant Chembo who was fired in January.

The former Kabwe Warriors boss has penned a short time contract until end of the season.

“Forest Rangers Football Club has appointed Ian Bakala the new Head Coach for the reminder of the season, effective immediately,” the club announced.

“The former Kabwe Warriors Head coach has joined the Forest Rangers technical bench with vast experience having qualified Kabwe Warriors to the CAF confederation cup last season. He has also worked with other Super Division Teams like Lusaka Dynamos.”

The club has challenged coach Bakala to help the team finish in a respectable position and hopefully qualify for CAF by the end of the eight games.

“ZAFFICO has brought about the following changes because it remains committed to Forest Rangers and wants to see it maximise shareholder value investment, as well as get back to its formidable form which saw it qualify to competitions like ABSA Cup and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League,” Mumba said.
