Lwandamina stays modest despite Al Ahly kill

Sports Lwandamina stays modest despite Al Ahly kill

Zesco United coach George Lwandamina remained calm despite engineering a famous 3-2 win over Egyptian giants Al Ahly in Saturday’s CAF Champions League match in Ndola.

Creative midfielder Cletus Chama grabbed a brace as Zesco launched the 2016 CAF Champions League group stage with a win over Ahly at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.

It was a fantastic start for the ambitious Zesco side that is making only a second appearance in the group stages of Africa’s premier club championship.

In a post-match interview, Lwandamina demanded hard work from his players.

“There is nothing like getting excited. If anything this is when we have to be more serious in our work,” he said.

“Beating a big team like Al Ahly has sent signals to other teams but can we sustain that performance? I have to get down to work so that we can reproduce that result in future games,” Lwandamina said.

Zesco and Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca jointly lead Group A with 3 points each.

Wydad overcame ASEC Mimosas 1-0 away in Côte d’Ivoire in the other Group A tie.

Zesco’s next Champions League encounter comes up in a fortnight against Wydad in North Africa.

  1. What a shame, we were practicing how to score goals? I couldn’t see any of the touches that looked like they are from a handbook. It was running aimlessly all over the pitch. What a waste of money!

    • Muletasha bola yalikosa must be a UPND cadre who see everything in the negative. Mukose cause we are sending you into political retirement come 11 August. Very negative indeed even on the Africa cup, how many teams have won the Africa cup in southern Africa????
