Forgotten Chipolopolo striker Lazarus Kambole is finally set for his Zesco United debut this Saturday when the nine-time Zambian champions visit Lumwana Radiants.
Kambole rejoined Zesco last week on a six-month loan deal from Tanzanian champions Young Africans in Tanzania whom he joined on a two-year contract in 2022 following a forgettable three-year stay at Kaizer Chiefs.
The news comes after Kambole’s much-anticipated Zesco debut during last Sunday’s 0-0 home draw against Nkwazi was put on hold due to an administrative delay.
Kambole’s return coincides with that of coach George Lwandamina who rejoined Zesco in December.
Lwandamina and Kambole won back-to-back league titles in the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
“I feel at home and I know the coach he is like a father to me so there is nothing new,” Kambole said.
“So far so good and I have adapted well.
“I am going to work hard and bring in my experience and hoping for the best.”
The 2021/2022 FAZ Super League runners-up are currently battling in unfamiliar waters at number 10 on 26 points, twelve points behind leaders Power Dynamos.
Elsewhere, FAZ Super League leaders Power is away in Mazabuka to face high-performers and promoted FC MUZA who is sitting at number three.
And in Kitwe, record 13-time Zambian champions Nkana continues its relegation fight when they host fourth placed Green Buffaloes.
Nkana is two places above the bottom four relegation zone at number 13.
