Rupia admits struggling to settle, Says ZSL is more physical

Power dynamos striker Elvis Rupia has admitted that he struggled to settle in the Zambia Super League since his switch from Nzoia Sugar.

Rupia was the leading goalscorer in the Kenya premier league by the time of his half a million Kwacha move to the Kitwe based out-fit.

The Kenyan striker believes the KPL is less physical and slower than the Zambia Super League.

“The league (ZSL) is more physical and faster compared to the KPL. I struggled with that aspect at first but I have adapted and really enjoying my stay in Zambia,” Rupia told Futaa.com

Rupia confessed that it was tough to adapt in the first few games but the support he is getting from Power dynamos has helped him settle.

“It was tough during the first few weeks. Settling in wasn’t easy at all but the team has been very supportive. I am now fully settled and looking forward to scoring more goals next season, ” he said.

At the start of his life at Power dynamos Rupia was very vocal and promised to outscore fellow Kenyan striker Jesse Jackson Were.

“The fans should expect me to score goals but in everything it is God first. I am targeting to score 14 to 15 goals,” he said.

“I am not scared of him (Were). I know myself, I can score more goals than him,” he added.

Despite his being vocal since his debut for Power dynamos things have not gone his way and has only managed to score just one goal. Power fans will be hoping he can get back to his terrifying goal scoring form he had in Kenya as they hope to have a better 2019 season after finishing 6th on the log.

    How has your compatriot managed and not just managed but is now one of the biggest stars of the ZSL. Stop with the excuses.

  2. Kasama Boy says:

    He was a bit too optimistic, now he has faced reality.
    The Kenyan game cannot be compared to the Zambian Game, and he should have taken that into consideration.
