Euro Wrap: Sunzu v Chisamba….Russian Gunners host Ural on Friday
The spotlight temporally shifts to Eastern Europe on Friday night as two Chipolopolo players come head to head.
On loan defender Stopilla Sunzu from French Ligue 1 will welcome Chisamba Lungu in his city.
Arsenal Tula host Ural in a Russian Premier League match with kick off at 17h00 Zambian time.
Both players featured for their respective clubs over the weekends and they were on the winning side.
Sunzu’s club in relegation zone while Chisamba’s Ural in above the drop zone.
There’s history between the players.
In August 2009, they both had trials at Baia Zudgigi in Georgia. Whilst Chisamba signed, Sunzu was deemed not mobile enough to be a midfielder and when Herve Renard got the scouting report from Europe, the towering Sunzu was converted to central defence in Janaury 2010. The rest is history.
While Chisamba moved from the Georgian club to Ural the following year, the journey for Sunzu has seen him play for Tp Mazembe, Sochaux, in China and Lille.
Before thé trials in Georgia, Sunzu also spent a season on loan at French side Châteauroux.
Whilst in China, Sunzu also came to head to head with Jacob Mulenga.
