Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Andrew Kamanga says he has received with profound shock and devastation, news that Chipolopolo captain Enock Mwepu has been diagnosed with a hereditary heart condition.
Kamanga says the Association will wait to hear from the player and medics on the next step but that FAZ is deeply saddened by the news that Mwepu will no longer play football on the advice of medics.
He says FAZ had kept tabs on his condition since he was admitted to hospital in Mali and airlifted to London and had hoped for better news but pledged that the Association will walk with him throughout this journey and wish him full recovery.
“We urge everyone to keep Mwepu and his family in prayers as he recovers from this condition. This being a medical diagnosis, leaves us with little else to say but only wish our skipper all the best throughout this process.
“I have since spoken to the player who advises that be left alone in the meantime to digest in privacy what has just happened. We however remain at his full disposal for him and his family in this dark moment. Should need for further information arise, the player and agent will liaise with FAZ with the interests of the player being of utmost importance,” Kamanga said.
