Herve Renard has said he hopes striker Emmanuel Mayuka will pick a team with European pedigree following recent interest from high profile clubs on the continent.
Mayuka has been linked with defending French champions Lille and English club Wigan over the last 30 days.
“I hope he will choose one team that will compete in the European cup because it should be the next step for Emmanuel Mayuka,” Renard said at the end of training at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka.
“And one improves a lot when you are playing in the European Cup.”
Renard said he has always believed Mayuka would make it in Europe after joining Young Boys of Switzerland from Maccabi Tel Aviv of Israel last year.
“We are proud for him. I never doubted his talent now we have to pray for him to get a very strong team in Europe,” Renard said.
Meanwhile, Zambia will leave for Angola on Saturday ahead of their friendly game against their hosts in Doudo on Sunday.
Renard said he is taking a 20-man team for the friendly.
