Zambian football icon Chris Katongo is being earmarked for a possible coaching role at Mufulira Wanderers, the ZamFoot Crew understands.
The 36 year old has emerged as the bookmakers favourite to replace Justin Chinama who was sacked on Monday after a string of poor results.
Although the 2012 BBC African Player of Year is back at Green Buffaloes as one of the two assistants to reinstated Bilton Musonda, he might see a return to the Copperbelt as an opportunity to prove his coaching credentials after he flirted with the Buildcon job.
Katongo who led Zambia to the 2012 African Cup of Nations glory is regarded as one the greatest African players in a 15 years career.
Ashios Melu, Jericho Shinde, the Bwalya brothers; Benjamin, Kalusha and Joe, Johnstone Bwalya, Charles Musonda, George Lwandamina and Efford Chabala are some of great names to have emerged from Mufulira.
In the last two decades or so, Rainford Kalaba, Sebastian Mwansa and the Katongo brothers; Felix and Chris Katongo were the latest players from the mining town even though none of them featured for either Blackpool or Wanderers.
Chris featured for Butondo Tigers before he was snapped by Kalulushi Modern Stars.
He then transferred Green Buffaloes.
Chris went on to play for clubs in South Africa, Denmark, Greece, Germany and China.
