Zesco United’s CAF Champions League opponents JKU SC of Zanzibar have arrived in the country ahead of Wednesday’s 2nd leg tie at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
The team were welcomed by new Zesco United CEO Mulenga at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport before they connected on a local flight to Ndola at around 17h30 on Sunday.
They were in bullish mood and will be aiming to cause one of the upsets of the preliminary stages.
“We respect Zesco United a lot but we showed that we are not scared of them,” one of the players told the ZamFoot Crew at the airport in Lusaka before departure for Ndola.
The two sides played to a goalless draw in Zanzibar in the first leg a week ago.
