George Lwandamina says Zesco United is taking positives from Saturday’s 2016 CAF Champions League semifinal elimination to build on their continental benchmarks set in 2016 for the 2017 campaign.
Zesco lost 2-0 away to Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday night to bow out 3-2 on aggregate.
It was the furthest a Zambian club had advanced in the CAF Champions League since the group stage was introduced in 1997.
“We gained so much experience along the way and I am sure the boys have grown and hopefully we will be able to retain the league back home so that we can compete again because we have set a mark and we have to do better than what we have done this year ” Zesco coach George Lwandamina said.
“It has been a good war, we have done so well and the bookmakers didn’t give us any chances.”
