Three To Miss Zanaco’s Must Win CL Clash


Zanaco will be without three key payers for their Orange CAF Champions League 2nd round, return leg match against Entente Setif of Algeria on Saturday at Nkoloma stadium on Saturday.
Defender Thomas Nyirenda, midfielder Trinity Chalanshi and striker Winston Kalengo will all be unavailable due to suspension in Zanaco’s must-win match against Setif which they trail 1-0 from the first leg.
“(Winston) Kalengo two yellow cards, Trinity (Chalanshi) two yellow cards and Thomas (Nyirenda) also two yellow cards,” Nyirenda said after Thursday afternoons’ training session at Sunset stadium.
“Otherwise we have mitigated measures over their unavalabilitity.”
With three key players unavailable, Zanaco coach will have to turn to Nchanga Rangers midfielder George Chilufya in that defensive midfield role and who has not played a single match due to injury since the start of the 2010 campaign.
Meanwhile, Setif arrived on Thursday afternoon with assistant coach Madoui Kheireddine saying that Setif was ready and enjoyed an advantage over Zanaco.
“We are also confident because we have players of great experience at this level and playing for Algeria,” Kheireddine said.
