Coach George Lwandamina is content with Zesco United’s narrow 1-0 win over Mbabane Swallows of Swaziland in Saturday’s return leg of the 2015 CAF Champions League that saw his team advance to the first round 2-1 on aggregate.
Lwandamina’s team wasted several clear cut chances and must thank midfielder Justin Zuku for scoring the solitary goal at Levy Mwanawasa that separated Zesco and Swallows at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
The controversial trainer claimed he was not bothered by his team’s failure to convert uncountable opportunities.
“I don’t know how content you want us to be? What is important is to excel or to move to another stage,” Lwandamina told reporters during a post-match media briefing.
“I am not frustrated, football is a game where you expect chances to be created and you can’t put away everything,” he said.
But Swallows coach Siyabonga Bhembe said Zesco were luck to beat his side and warned them to improve ahead of their first round outing in the Champions League.
“We were unluck to concede a soft goal. They (Zesco) are a ordinary team, it is just that they scored a luck goal but they are not good,” Bhembe said.
The two teams drew 1-1 in the first leg match played in Manzini a fortnight ago.
