Chris Munthali happy with Lebanon move

Sports Feature Sports Chris Munthali happy with Lebanon move

Zambian defender Christopher Munthali has begun settling down at his new Lebanese topflight side Akhaa Ahli Aley FC.

Munthali last month joined Ahli on a one year deal from FAZ Super Division side Kabwe Warriors.

The experienced defender has previously played for Power Dynamos, Nkana and Buildcon.

‘I am very happy to make this move. I have always wanted to make a move outside but some local clubs used to block me,’ Munthali said from Lebanon.

‘Settling is easy. I am just following instructions from the coach and I need to work hard. I have come here to play football. I am settling down well here,’ he said.

Munthali said language and cultural differences won’t hinder him from excelling in Lebanon.

‘Language is a challenge but the good part is that the coach uses English and some players from Brazil and Portugal and food is not a problem,’ Munthali said.

He believes the Lebanese league will help him break into a bigger league.

‘My target is to play in a bigger league. This is a stepping stone as I begin my professional career.”

Munthali won the 2013 Cosafa Cup with Chipolopolo on home soil.
