Mwepu signs new contract at Brighton as backroom staff!

THE “Computer” has signed a new deal with English Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion FC, three months after announcing his retirement from playing football.

The Zambian midfielder Enock Mwepu has been employed at Brighton and Hove Albion FC to continue his football legacy at the English club.

BolaNews is reliably informed that Mwepu, who retired from football at age 24 after being diagnosed with a hereditary heart condition, was given time by the club to recover before deciding on his next step. Mwepu fell ill on a flight to join his Zambia teammates during the international break in September of this year, and he returned to Brighton to undergo additional cardiac tests after a stay in a hospital in Mali.

Later, his club disclosed that, should he have continued playing competitive football, he would have been at a very high risk of suffering a “fatal cardiac arrest.”
