Nkana legend Douglas Chiwaya says Kalampa does not have a reason to under perform owing to the lucrative sponsorship the club is currently enjoying.
The record 12-time FAZ Super Division champions have this season secured a US$179,000 sponsorship deal.
In an interview in Kitwe, Chiwaya, a retired striker, said Nkana must deliver the desired results this season.
Nkana went through financial constraints between 2000 and 2011 – the period in which the club twice suffered demotion from the top flight league.
“This time around the team must perform well without any excuses. The players must aim high,” Chiwaya said.
“Things are now good at Nkana. Unlike in the past when we used to survive on money from individuals pockets like 722 (Patrick Njovu) and others,” he noted.
The former Power Dynamos and Kitwe United star is happy with Nkana’s impressive start to the 2016 league campaign.
The unbeaten Wusakile side top the table with 19 points from seven matches played.
“I am happy with the team’s performance so far. It is good they are winning at home,” Chiwaya said.
Nkana last won the league title in 2013 under the late coach Masauso Mwale.
