Mopani Copper Mines CEO Dan Callow has told Nkana to finish in the top three next season for them to get an improved sponsorship package.

Callow however said Mufulira Wanderers needed to work harder next season to also get better incentives.

“We have laid down the challenge to Nkana,” Callow said.

“We have said to them we will maintain the sponsorship as it is now, they have to prove to us that they have the mantle and the commitment to go away now and come away in the top three in the league next year.”

Callow said rehabilitation works at Nkana Stadium are at an advanced stage where two training pitches are being laid and that it was a sign of bigger things to come at Nkana.

“They are very motivated they are ready for it and as we go through the season if they doing well we will review that again,” he said.

Nkana bounced back after a poor start to the season to finish 10th season.

“Wanderers we have given them a challenge as well,” Callow said.
Wanderers finished seventh on 59 points on the Faz Division One North table this just ended season.

“We gave them a lot of sponsorship this year. They haven’t been neglected,” Callow said.

“They have a new kit, they had a lot of training materials they have a monthly allowance.

“And really with Mufulira Wanderers my comment to them is guys you had a reasonable start to the season you dropped off a little a bit at the end but prove to us next season you are in winning ways and we will review all those things again.”

  1. You even have the gut to tell Nkana that rubbish when you pretty know that you are responsible for the demise of the once glamorous Copperbelt teams? You had been giving Nkana $5,000 a month which Katumbi of Mazembe gives each player! We know ZCCM took care of the players that is why BaChibungo and BaChairman (BaMoses) were able to get players outside Kitwe even though they had a strong nursery locally as well. Atase.

  3. Mopani must stop talking NoNSENSE. Mighty and Nkana are Zambia’s two most succesful clubs. They are where they are now because of Mopanii. So do not come and starrt putting a gun to the heads of children you failed to bring up. Just silently work on their turn around.
