Barclays Cup victory lifts Zesco’s spirits

Sports Barclays Cup victory lifts Zesco's spirits

Zesco United acting coach Tenant Chembo says winning the 2016 Barclays Cup is a huge consolation for his team’s failure to defend the FAZ Super Division title.

Congolese striker Idris Mbombo scored as Zesco beat Zanaco 1-0 to win the Barclays Cup for a record fifth time.

Zesco went into the Barclays Cup final three days after relinquishing the league title to Zanaco.

“It is an enormous consolation if you lay your hands on the only cup in the country,” Chembo said.

“We have to cherish and treasure this cup. Everyone at the club has put in a lot,” he told reporters at National Heroes Stadium.

“I feel great. I feel honored,” Chembo concluded.

Zanaco coach Mumamba Numba bemoaned his team’s failure to win the cup.

“It feels very bad to lose in the final.
We really wanted it more than Zesco because they have won it several times,” Numba said.

“I think we had more chances than Zesco but we failed to utilise those chances,” he noted.

Zanaco have never won the Barclays Cup despite being finalists twice.
