Expert View : Nchanga Rangers need a new Zikiru Adams
Nchanga Rangers football club are a team that is not new to fighting relegation, Despite the season being far from the time the curtain will close all indications point to the Chingola based out-fit fighting relegation all through the season.
With seventeen rounds of matches played this far they are 17th on the log with only 12 points accumulated. A story similar to that of last season as they only survived relegation on the final day of the 2017 Super League season.
As a matter of fact by week thirteen they had the same statistics as those of last season, Three wins, Three draws and seven losses. At week seventeen however they had four more points than they have today because they had drawn their week 15 -17 matches, Sadly this season they have lost all four.
What’s the difference you ask?, Ghanaian striker Zikiru Adams is the answer. Three out of those four draws ended 1-1 and all the three goals were scored by Adams.
Fast forward to week 38, Rangers survived relegation 16th on the log and four points clear of 17th placed Mighty Mufurila Wanderers with Adams ending the season was the Club’s top goalscorer on 13 goals from just 15 games a feet that even the late Godfrey Chitalu would be proud of.
The Ghanaian joined Nchanga with the view of advertising himself and earning a move away from Chingola to a ‘bigger’ Club which he has done as he is currently on the books of defending Champions Zesco United.
He was a man with a dream, big ambitions and a great will something that Nchanga can use right about now. They need a player or players with the same level of dedication as Adams, Someone whocan carry the team on his shoulders during difficult games and stir them towards victory.
Brave need to re-inforce during the mid season transfer window or else the 1998 Super League champions might not be so luck this time.
