Former Chipolopolo star Elijah Litana has counselled the current generation of players on the significance of financial literacy.

Litana is urging players to use money prudently.

The former Saudi Arabia based defender has in the past opened up on his story of squandering huge earnings through gambling and drinking at his peak.

“As former players we must tell young players what we went through,” Litana said on the sidelines of financial literacy training for footballers organised by Barclay Bank in Ndola.

“Let’s talk about finances and what happens if you not saving money. There is a future after you retire. These young players you need to motivate them,” he said.

Litana spent five seasons at Saudi club Al-Hilal which used to fly him around in a royal private jet.

He now lives at a farm in Masaiti near a place called Masangano.

  3. He now lives at a farm in Masaiti near a place called Masangano.
    That doesn’t say anything about his financial status.
    Is he poor or is he a wealthy owner of a farm?

  6. I remember when this guy made it to the national team and he scored the only goal against Nigeria in the loss, but when they came back from Africa Cup of Nations final, he was always wasted in Ndola he was always hanging out at Ndola Wanderers Club or city center. One day I met him in Chifubu hammered with the kaponyas. I hope he’s health and well being is okay and he can live happily with his family and loved ones. Thanks Litana for your contribution to the Zambian soccer team
