Kalusha explains why he didn’t vote for Kalaba
FOOTBALL legend Kalusha Bwalya has advised Chipolopolo midfielder Rainford Kalaba not to despair after finishing third in the race for the African-footballer-of-the-year for stars based on the continent.
Kalaba finished third behind Dennis Onyango and second-placed Khama Billiat.
Kalusha, who is in Zurich, Switzerland, on FIFA duties, gave five points to Onyango, four to Billiat and three to Kalaba.
The former Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president has advised the TP Mazembe midfielder to remain resilient and look forward to the future.
“Let it go. It’s gone. Anyone who has played football in his life knows that the most important game is the next one. I am sure Rainford [Kalaba] will have a good next season and come back and stand a chance to win. He shouldn’t despair. He should be encouraged.
“Kalaba is a good player but there are several factors considered when voting. If you look at the top two (Onyango and Billiat), you will see why Africa voted for them. There is Africa Cup and there is also champions league,” he said.
