Nkana are moving on after the sudden departure of key Congolese striker Idriss Mbombo.

Mbombo is reported to have signed for Sudanese giants Al Hilal for two years after spending the 2018 season on loan at Nkana.

Nkana chief executive officer Charles Chakatazya said Kalampa regrets Mbombo’s departure but have adequate cover for the man who scored 21 league goals this year.

“I think Idriss Mbombo helped the team. We will miss his service but we have 28 players and all the players are important,” Chakatazya said.

Nkana are preparing to compete in the CAF Champions League after finishing runners up in the 2018 FAZ Super Division campaign.

“I think we have enough cover for him. If you look at the number of strikers remaining at the club they are all seasoned players. Our supporters should not be worried,” he said.

A month and some days were left on Mbombo’s loan deal at Nkana prior to his acrimonious departure from Wusakile.

  1. Please concentrate on identifying local players. Foreign players are after money. If you heavily depend on them it will mean going back to the drawing board. Remember Binene was about to leave early this year. Invest more in young Nkana or else we are inviting untimely trouble.
