Mayuka pushing for a move away from Zamalek
Striker Emmanuel Mayuka wants to leave Egyptian side Zamalek after failing down the pecking down.
The 26 year old has not returned to Zamalek and is believed to be Lusaka.
The 2012 African Cup of Nations golden boot winner was left out Zamalek’s CAF Champions League squad and that upset Mayuka’s handlers.
“Zamalek has showed disrespectful to a player of Mayuka’s calibre and quality. They can’t leave him out of their continental squad,” a ZamFoot Crew insider said.
“Mayuka wants to reclaim his national team place and wants to help Zambia push for a World Cup place in Russia as well as AFCON in 2019. And he knows he has to start playing and than sitting on the bench. There are too many politics at Zamalek,” adds the source.
The former Kabwe Warriors ace wants to kickstart his career and there are whispers that he could be heading back to Israel though not with Maccabi Tev Aviv but could be reunited with his 2007 World Youth Cup strike partner Rodger Kola at Hapoel Ra’anana.
Teenage striker Conlyde Luchanga and left back Emmanuel Mbola are also on the books of Ra’anana.
If a move to Israel will not materialise, Mayuka is hoping a move back to Swiss side Young Boys is possible though the chances are very slim.
There also been talk of a move a to the lucrative Chinese League but that’s also unlikely.
