Dario Bonetti should drop Rainford Kalaba.
The club-less little midfielder on Sunday hit headlines again with another misdemeanor this time with a car accident after an alleged social outing with some female companions just outside Ndola.
This guy has not played any competitive football for eight months, has sulked at the prospect of going to play for Zamalek in Egypt on loan because of a phobia of facing harsh treatment by Arabs and has basked in the glory of self-indulgence.
He is now an outcast at Portuguese side Braga who want to loan him out but it seems no suitors are willing to take him on.
Kalaba has shown little respect for his profession, the green shirt of Zambia that is keeping his profile going.
It is insulting to see a player, worshiped by many, resigned to just working out and vigorously raising his elbow rather than his foot or knee on the weekend.
A player with little regard for his trade has no place in our national team no matter how good he is.
To flirt with players like Kalaba is a recipe for disaster for the team and is bad PR for an already fallen giant like Zambia who will be seen to be in begging desperately for their star players.
He should be thinking of his own welfare and that of his family. But is he?
Kalaba is misguided to think that people dish out money for free just to sit at home for doing nothing.
Bonetti be warned, rouge players like Kalaba using a national team call-up to try and caps to spice up their CV’s with the prospect of finding a new club should not be entertained.
We have seen this happen with a lot of indiscipline players in Zambia and they have all been but a burden to tax payers money who foot their bonus while on national duty.
It is a tough decision but Bonetti a harsh example has to be made of where one is coming from and where they are going.
