Kola Heads To Belgium
Striker Rodgers Kola put behind his disappointing Africa Cup snub after winning a European move to KAA Gent of Belgian.
The striker ‘s agent Nir Karin confirmed on Monday that the former Zambia Under-23 striker will join Gent on a five-year deal.
Karin said the deal was worth Euros 800,000 for the striker who leaves Israeli club Ashdod for Western Europe after over two seasons in Israel.
Kola is the third Zambian to have attracted interest from Gent in the last 10 years.
Midfielder Ian Bakala and defender Elijah Tana were less successful when they attended trials there in April 2002.
Meanwhile, Kola failed to make the trip to Equatorial Guinea and Gabon in January after coach Herve Renard dropped him from the team.
