Zesco United coach George Lwandamina has conceded that outgoing striker Lazarus Kambole will be a difficult player to replace.
Kambole is leaving Zesco after six years with the seven-time FAZ Super Division champions to join struggling South African giants Kaizer Chiefs on a three-year deal.
The striker scored 25 goals for both club and country in 2018 and another 16 so far this season in all competition.
“Definitely, on that one we have to do something and I don’t know where we have to look to whether it is locally or internationally,”Lwandamina said.
“Because the standards that he attained were high standards, so if we are to get any replacement he must be better than Kambole.
“And if you look into our own league is there any person like Kambole?”
