    I would really like to sit with these guys and understand what drives them to these non progressive career moves. How is moving from Portugal to the Zambian league ever going to help in the development of your game?

    • Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

      It is because these guys have failed to make the grade, hence being released by these second division teams whose only purpose is to remain in division 2 and feed the big teams, and earn some cash. Some of these clubs are owned by the big men owning or having shares in big clubs. Football is now big business therefore when these guys come to the conclusion that they will not get anything in return the solution is simple. Release him from the club when the contract ends. This guy is a failure that is that

  2. discipline says:

    Sure he is a failure, a striker 40 times he plays and just 6 goals what a pulanga.

  3. Zambia Shall win the afcon again says:

    He was never that good even here in Zed. I mean scoring eleven league goals in the Zambian league is not an achievement. Top players score 15 goals or more by mid season in Europe. So going to Europe with 11 goals after 25 or more games is not just good enough

  4. Prince says:

    Excellent feedback from all you gents…

  5. Julio says:

    You’ve summed up really well there. And we are surprised why Buildcon aren’t living up to their hype. It’s because of such signings of mediocre or players past their prime. That said, good luck to him in ZSL.

  6. Pundit says:

    Welcome back home Moses I think there was no need to go to those mediocre teams I think even your pay was mediocre you rushed just like Brian Mwila,Roderick Kabwe..two steps foward five steps backwards!
