President Edgar Lungu says Zambian football clubs that represent the country in continental football should aim at winning their respective leagues as opposed to being mere participants in the leagues.

President Lungu said football clubs that play continental football should always remember that they represent the country and not their individual clubs.

The Head of State noted that as representatives of the national flag abroad, Zambian clubs should play for victories.

Speaking when he received a replica jersey from Zanaco Football club officials at State House this afternoon, the President noted that sports and football, in particular, is a unifying factor that brings all Zambians of various political affiliations together.

President Lungu is the national soccer team patron said Zambians support all clubs that represent the country at the continental level.

The President urged Zanaco to aim at beating RS Berkane Football Club of Morocco in the Group B CAF Confederation Cup match which will be played at the National Heroes Stadium this Sunday.

And Zanaco FC Board Chairperson Hanstings Mtine invited the Head of State to watch the team when they on the Moroccan on home on Sunday.

Mtine said the presence of the head of state at the stadium will motivate the boys to work hard and collect maximum points which he said is crucial for the team.

Mtine and his delegation presented the three sets of the team’s jerseys to President Lungu who expressed hope to be in attendance depending on his schedule on that day.

Zanaco is tied on the 3rd position with one point at par with DC Motema Pembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo whom they played to a 1 all draw last week in Kinshasa.

    • Let’s develop this thing Mr. President! Job well done! You doing a great job that even big adults from outside Ha Jealousy too! Someone is thinking, “If only HH were to be player coach of Zambia, we could win five cups!” HAZALUZA HAGIAN and azamwarira na H-ate na Ha-jelousy.

    • They have wrong witch-doctor at statehouse, they keep losing.
      They just lost Bill 10 and erections in Northern province those you are inviting to stadium. Zanaco … a game and you go to lobby support from State House is same as taking the players to go and spend a night at cemetery hoping for the dead to help.

  1. “And Zanaco FC Board Chairperson Hanstings Mtine invited the Head of State to watch the team when they on the Moroccan on home on Sunday”

    Now this is worthy of the wooden spoon. LT Editor is sleeping on the job or working under the influence.

    • The journalism reflects the entire nation’s exploits. You should n’t expect footballers to play better or policemen to understand the laws or judges to be impartial or politicians to deliver. All citizens are mediocre

  2. Mr President, there is a family which is trapped in their yard in PHI for 2 days now as their gate cannot be opened because of a ZESCO loss of power supply. ZESCO keeps giving them different complaint numbers each time they call. In case of a fire, this is a real problem

  3. Zambian teams are customers for north Africa and west African teams.We have
    A history of failing to beat these teams.

  4. @Chipolopolo, People with a negative mindset like you can never bring or rather cause anything good come out of anything…

    Its not everything you can politicize about…Remember words create and its not hard to sometimes say positive words..

  5. Don`t criticize the chipolopolo instead pray and support them. Mr. President well done for the job you’re doing. And thanks for your support.

  6. We say that a positive thought and a positive mind also helps to win the lottery,the most likely is that tomorrow there will be many possibilities to eat.
    “Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. All the best to the CHIPOLOPOLO you have our support ..
