Kalusha Bwalya has told officials at his old club Mufulira Wanderers to respect and recognise former team players.
Past stars are usually harassed and denied entry into various stadia during FAZ Super Division matches.
Wanderers legend and former goalkeeper Abraham Nkole at one time stopped going to Shinde Stadium after being harassed by club officials during a game.
Speaking during the Wanderers fund-raising dinner dance in Lusaka at the weekend, Kalusha said old players must not be harassed at their old clubs.
Wanderers legends Dickson Makwaza, Ackim Musenge, Fredrick Kashimoto, Abrahama Nkole and Michael Kapembwa graced the dinner dance.
“When these people (legends) come to Shinde Stadium respect them,” he said.
“When we come there to Shinde Stadium please accord us the same gesture you have done today,” Kalusha said.
“When we come people should be able to recognise that these people have played for this club,” he said amid applauds from old players and supporters.
And Makwaza encouraged club supporters to take keen interest in the performance of Wanderers.
“I am asking everybody here as supporters if a team is winning or losing it is your job to call the coaches aside and say ba coach ifwe palya tatulemona bwino,” the former Zambia and Mighty skipper said.
“Don’t leave everything to coaches,” he concluded.
Mufulira based Members of Parliament, FAZ officials and fans attended the fund-raising event.
