Wedson Impressed With Konkola Stadium Turnout
Zesco United coach Wedson Nyirenda says he was excited to see a huge turnout of fans at Konkola Stadium on Sunday during their Week 4 game away to Konkola Blades.
Konkola was two-thirds full as the home fans roared on the Chililabombwe club against the current league leaders despite Blades losing 2-1.
“I liked that crowd if you had a crowd like that shows the results of us winning the Africa Cup,” Nyirenda said.
“The fans again have rediscovered their heart for the game. They want to see our local stars before they see them at the national level.
“It is now up to FAZ to take advantage of this and market the game.”
Nyirenda also hoped that the enthusiasm to watch local football will be constant this season.
“We have started well this year and I hope we will stop bickering. People will differ on opinions but we move on,” Nyirenda said.
“You can see that everyone has big expectations for Zambian football. You can see how Power Dynamos were humiliated in Congo, the whole nation was humiliated and the same thing with Red Arrows we were humiliated.”
