Tana gives Cletus Chama high marks

Sports Tana gives Cletus Chama high marks

Ex-Zambia captain and defender Elijah Tana is impressed with Zesco United midfielder Cletus Chama’s performance at the ongoing CAF African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Rwanda.

Chama has played a critical role in Zambia’s last two Group D victories that have propelled coach George Lwandamina’s team to the CHAN quarterfinals with a game to spare.

Tana is familiar with Chama whom he coached at Nchanga Rangers three seasons ago where the ex-Zambia star is assistant coach.

“He is playing very well and you cannot doubt his qualities,” said Tana, who captained Zambia at its last CHAN outing in 2009 where the team finished third.

“He has stepped up a gear at the national team and the sky is the limit for him.

“Another advantage is that he knows Lwandamina’s philosophy from Zesco where he also the boys coach at the club so it is seamless for him also at the national team.

“All I can say to him now is to stay focused and disciplined.”

On top of his trickery from midfield, Chama’s two assists’ led to goal’s for Isaac Chansa in Zambia’s 1-0 win over Zimbabwe on January 19 and Christopher Katongo’s goal in the victory over Uganda via the same scoreline on January 23.

The 24-year-old playmaker currently has four caps and scored his debut goal in Zambia’s 2-1 win over Angola in a pre-CHAN friendly on January 10 played in Johannesburg.
