Landi slams use of long balls
City of Lusaka head coach Roberto Landi has alluded Zambia’s lack of good quality central midfielder to the use of long ball approach by many clubs. The Italian looked to be throwing a dig at Zambian coaches after his teams 4-1 humiliating loss at the hands of Sensational Zanaco.
“They need to teach football to these players . They have all the qualities like speed and skill but if you just kick the ball upfront then what? . You ask why you don’t have one top level central midfielder? ” Landi said.
-Zambian players are very good players, I have trained in Liberia , In Libya and Egypt So I know their level but they need to be taught football. Long balls only can not win you anything not in Africa and certainly not anywhere in thhe world,” he added.
The former United States goalkeeper trainer is yet to record a win since joining City of Lusaka . The team from woodlands stadium is bottom of the table with only 12 points collected from 29 games played
