Kalungi – who left former club Charlotte Independence in December of 2018 – is now set to embark on several courses to help him get the credentials after the U.S. Soccer Coaching Education Department gave him the green light.

Speaking exclusively with Airtel Football, the star said his major target is bring about permanent change but also give back to the football community.

“As a player have always thought about how I can give back what I have learned,” he said.

I have an opportunity to learn more and deeper about the game. Right now, getting this qualification, will give me an opportunity to teach others and once done playing, I will be able to serve soccer at any level. My target is to be able to make a difference.

As part of the journey to being on the touchline, the 31-year old has been working with several youth systems in North Carolina.

In addition to coaching, he will also continue his charity works under the Henry Kalungi Foundation.

Among his key plans this year is to extend support to more underprivileged children but also break ground for a hospital and school.
