Sports Krmpotic braces for Zesco debut

Zesco United coach Zlatko Krmpotic comes under the microscope this evening when he makes his competitive debut with the Ndola giants.

Zesco will play their first competitive game in 2017 when they host Le Messager Ngozi of Burundi in a CAF Confederation Cup first round, first leg match at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

The Serbian has a hard act to follow after his predecessor George Lwandamina set the standard in 2016.

Krmpotic inherits a squad that Lwandamina led to a debut semifinal appearance in the CAF Champions League last season.

Missing from Friday’s game will be goalkeeper Jacob Banda who is serving a one match suspension.

But midfielder Cletus Chama is the only major departure from the team following his move from Zesco as a free agent in December.

Krmpotic, though, is not new to continental success and was Frenchman Patrice Carteron’s assistant at DR Congo side TP Mazembe when they won the 2015 CAF Champions League title.

Meanwhile, a home win against Ngozi, who are making their second African appearance following their debut in 2015 in the same competition, will go some way to ease the early pressure as Zesco try to emulate their Champions League success in the second tier competition.
