Zesco United coach Tenant Chembo says his team was itching for this Saturday’s Charity Shield semifinal match against Power Dynamos set for Lusaka.
Zesco and Power clash at Nkoloma Stadium in a 13:00 hours kick-off match while Zanaco will take on Napsa Stars in the second semifinal at the same venue.
In an interview, Chembo said he was looking forward to the match against Power.
“It is a very good draw and we expected to be drawn with any team. We’ve got respect for Power Dynamos they are a good team but this is a game of competition,” he said.
“We are looking forward to it (Charity Shield) and we are looking forward to the new season,” Chembo added.
He expressed happiness with Zesco’s pre-season training ahead of the 2013 campaign.
“The preparations have been going on very well so far so good and the new players have fitted in so well.”
Meanwhile, Congolese striker Patrick Kabamba has completed his move to Zesco.
Kabamba was a free agent after his recent spell in Angola.
