Zambia legend Dickson Makwaza has tipped his grandson and Power Dynamos midfielder Linos Makwaza Jr to remain focused in his career.

The 21-year-old youngster had a fair share of game time at Arthur Davies in the ended 2018 FAZ Super Division campaign after starting in 13 games and played one as a substitute.

“I have advised by grandchild to remain focused. I pray that God helps the young man to pull through,” the 76 year old retired defender said.

The former KK 11 captain wants his grandson to combine football and education.

He graduated from the Power youth team which competes in Division Two.

“He is doing well but at the present moment he must concentrate on education as he plays football. Football is not something you have to depend on alone,” he said.

Makwaza Jr is the son of Power Dynamos great Linos Makwaza.

“The Makwaza name is still standing in Zambian football because of the pillar I laid,” said the man who captained Zambia at the 1974 Africa Cup in Egypt.

The former Mighty Mufulira Wanderers player and coach won five national league titles during his playing days.

  2. Truly so!
    In our times we used to name ourselves after Zambian football players. Ucar, Makwaza, Gibby, Chambeshi (quick silver), Kashimoto, Efford etc we had them in the villages.
    I don’t know nowadays if kids call themselves:
    – Sate Sate
    – Festus Mbewe
    – Stophila (maybe him)
    – Nsabata
    – Fwayo

  4. Ka anyoko must have a low sex drive or none at all. No wonder your low self esteem. Makwaza or Magwaza is an indigenous Zambian.

  7. Comment: To reach this far takes discipline and the grace of God. No young Player can take the names of our Zambian players after them because they don’t inspire them in any way simply because most of them lack discipline.
