Struggling Afrisports have disclosed that they can beat demotion from Division 2 north.
Afrisports have won just two games this season in with nine draws from 15 matches and fourth from bottom in Division 2 after their demotion from Division 1 north at the end of last season.
“We have a bad start in our first half of the season and have won just two games,” Afrisports chief executive Gabriel Kaunda said.
“We came here to division two thinking we could do with our youth development but we got a rude shock with some of the experienced players some of the teams have.
Kaunda however said he was still confident Afripsorts will beat the drop to amateur Division 3.
“We still have 15 games to play and I am confident we can survive,” Kaunda said.
Should Afrisports drop further down the league ladder, it will mark a dark moment for one of Zambia’s most successful developmental teams that produced has established Zambia internationals Jacob Mulenga, Rainford Kalaba and Stophira Sunzu.
