Kapumbu soaks-in CAF awards nominations

Sports Kapumbu soaks-in CAF awards nominations

Fackson Kapumbu is honoured to see his exploits for both club and country recognized following his nomination for both 2017 CAF Players Awards.

The Zesco United and Chipolopolo defender is the only Zambian to have made this year’s provisional shortlist for both the 2017 CAF Africa Player of the Year and 2017 CAF African-Based Player of the Year awards.

“It is just down to my hard work and I thank Zanaco and Zesco for this nomination,” Kapumbu said.

Kapumbu joined 2016 league runners-up Zesco from 2016 league champions Zambia in January.

“I cannot afford to relax because of the nomination and I must just work harder after this,” Kapumbu said.

And Kapumbu added that it will be a tough battle to make the last three shortlists in both categories for the January 4 awards gala in Accra, Ghana but the recognition was one a big boost for his CV.

Kapumbu has made the left-back position with Zambia his own since Wedson Nyirenda was appointed Chipolopolo coach in September 2016 and has scored one goal for the team.

He was also part of the Zesco side that reached the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinals where they were eliminated by 2017 finalists SuperSport United.
