Enock Mwepu

Enock Mwepu will take up the role of Under-9s coach at Brighton & Hove Albion in the New Year, the club announced through their official website.

Speaking to the Brighton & Hove Albion website, first-team head coach Roberto De Zerbi welcomed the move by the club.

“We’re really happy that Enock has decided to remain here at our club and use his experience to help develop our young players. Considering his age, Enock has a wealth of experience.

He has played in the Champions League and Premier League as well as captaining his country. This is the next chapter for Enock in his footballing career,” said De Zerbi.

Chief executive and deputy chairman Paul Barber said, “We were very keen to help Enock with the next stage of his career, and we’re delighted he’s taken us up on the offer to join our academy coaching staff after an incredibly difficult time for him and his family following his diagnosis.

Enock was forced to retire in October because of a hereditary heart condition.

“Whenever we recruit a new member of staff, on or off the pitch, we want them to fit with our club values and Enock absolutely encapsulates those perfectly.

"We’re thrilled Enock will continue to be part of our club and believe Enock has a huge amount of potential as a coach. We want to give him the opportunity to flourish in this role.”
