    So the number of Zambian players based in Europe is actually less than 10 and not of them are playing in the top four leagues in Europe.. Where are we lacking behind???

    • Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

      Just like football administrators Zambian most of the Zambian football players are not very serious and ambitious. Average West African players do manage in Europe because of hard work and their professionalism. The only serious Zambian players we have in Europe is Sunzu who is always featuring for his club. Evans is doing fine as well in Russian league that is full of racsim. Unless the players we have Europe improve scouts will turn a blind eye. Most Zambian players are lazy and always look to God to help them. God helps those who help themselves, meaning it is you that can help yourself. Apart from that I think paliba ne ya kutina aba Sungu no muchinshi sana

      In conclusion our players don’t fight like kalusha and Charlie did. It is only Sunzu who is doing that a fact supported by his game time at Metz in France. The story is the same for those in South Africa. These players need to use Kalu, Charles, Sunzu, Kenneth Malitoli as a yard stick from which to measure their standards. The players I have mentioned did very well as pros piling their trade outside Zambia. Mwape Miti and Andrew Tembo are other players worth mentioning as having done exceptionally well in Denmark. A look at the number of Zambian players that failed in Europe will support my comments
      Edwin Phiri, Sweden failure
      Boyd Mwila, Sweden failure
      Perry Mutapa never lived up to expectations
      Andrew Sinkala Average
      Moses Sichone average
      Chisamba Lungu Average
      Jacob Mulenge Average
      Ronald sate sate failure
      Fwayo Tembo Failure

      I can go on with the list.

      The reason for failure is either lack of education or inferiority complex

      A look at what is happening now does not surprise me

      I don’t know whether this will ever change

      Just my observations. Sorry if I hurt you but truth has to be told. When a player is content with a place on bench then you know the guy has no fighting spirit

      Let Zambian players learn from West Africans who in my opinion have the hunger, desire, discipline and mental strength to succeed
      Not lyonse ati lesa (God), God is for everyone

        I agree with most of what you have said boss apart from Jacob Mulenga. You put him in the average category which I don’t agree with. I think Jacob was way more than just average. I do agree with your point of Zambians hoping for God to help them without putting in effort. That’s why I’ve always been against the foolish idea of “Lesa na bola.” It promotes laziness and vanity.

        If more players under the “legal” age of 17 and 20 can fight their way to Europe Zambia will produce a squad worth being proud of. As teenagers they will lean that professional football is not just about running on the pitch, it’s about lifestyle (what you eat/drink when no one is watching, hardwork on and off the pitch), personal ambition just to mention a few.
