Chipolopolo head trainer, Herve Renard revealed how a named journalist from a named newspaper confessed that he concocted an article in which he quoted him as source of the article.

The Zambia head coach revealed to shocked sports reporters that the journalist apologised and confessed that he decided to invent the story because such was the demand from his superior.

“I forgave him but warned that that if ever he repeated the act, I would not tolerate it. But today, the same journalist has attacked my goalkeeper as if my keeper was the worst in the world. He has attacked my captain and myself. But he forgets that they can criticise me and I don’t care because I don’t read what he writes. I don’t have a problem with his newspaper or his organisation, I have a problem with him unless writing lies and stories which are not true is what they do,” Renard said.

The named journalist was not in attendance in the press briefing.
