Zesco to miss trio Akumu, Mtonga & Were…coach falls ill in transit to Angola

Zesco United left on Saturday afternoon for  Angola ahead of their midweek CAF Confederations Cup tie against Recreativo do Libolo.

And the Ndola will be without the services of three players in Luanda.

Kenyan striker Jesse Were will miss the game due to a muscle injury he sustained while on national duty  while defensive duo Anthony Akumu and Kondwani Mtonga are serving suspensions.

The team left for South Africa from Lusaka yesterday and are expected to connect to Luanda on Sunday morning.

Meanwhile Zesco United assistant coach Emmanuel Siwale has fallen ill in transit and is being attended to by the medical staff.

Zesco lead the group with 6 points after recording two wins and a defeat.

The 2016 CAF Champions League semi finalist are followed by Egyptian side Smouha and Al Hilal of Sudan who are both on 4 points while the Angolan side are on 3 points.

The match will be played on Tuesday with kick off at 3 pm.

    Ba Zamfoot we are happy you give us a platform to express our opinions as Zambian soccer fans & followers of your site.. Keep up with the good work..
    Its sad to hear about the sickness of the coach of Zega Mambo..
    Allow me to express my views concerning my observation of what the new Zesco coach has done to two players I feel ought to have regular playing time,Chaila & Silwimba..
    Last season these two performed well for Zega last season hence being called to the National Team.
    I’ve been a follower of european football for over 2 decades & I’ve come to know that players who r on national team roasters are to be given preferences at club levels considering they’re local players & fit to play. I don’t think Chaila’s or Silwimba’s performances can dwindle at the arrival of a new coach within a space of 4 months between two seasons.. Let clubs give preferences to local players for the National team to become competitive again

  4. Good luck ba zega hope the recovers quick like ba zamfoot.
