Chipolopolo defender Stophila Sunzu has joined French League two side FC Metz on a two year deal after his one and half year loan deal at Russian premier league club Arsenal Tula came to an end.

Lille have agreed to sell Zambian central defender Stoppila Sunzu to Metz for around €800k, according to Le 10 Sport.

Sunzu spent last season on loan with Arsenal Tula in Russia, but Christophe Galtier has decided not to keep the player on.

As a result, he is set to reunite with Frédéric Antonetti.
The 2012 AFCON winner first moved to France during the winter of 2014 when he joined Sochaux where he played just seventeen games and found the back of the net four times but could not help the team avoid relegation.

In 2015 after a six-month adventure in China, the defender joined LOSC Lille where he spent a year and a half before being his loan to Russia.



  1. Sunzu; whatever penny you make please invest it so that you live happily even after you retire from soccer. The likes of Elijah Litana and many others are a sorry sight today….call it financial mismanagement.


    • He has made strong investments in Zambia mostly in the property market. He is among Zambian stars together with Isaac Chansa and Chris katongo who seem to have there head in the right place when it comes to money management.


  2. Knowing him and his family in Ndola, there was great mismanagement and he was too generous to those CATS who believe in “TULYEMO”.


  3. Sports reporter, take a leaf from the way foreign sports correspondents write their stories on players and transfers. One thing they will never forget is to indicate the current age of the player. In the story above, we have not been told the current age of Nsunzu so that we determine if he still got the game inside him. All the same, it’s all good as he prepares to make dime for his impending retirement.
