Green Buffaloes to camp abroad ahead of CAF games

Green Buffaloes Football Club want to camp outside the country to give the players the right mental attitude to cope with the rigorous life of the CAF Confederations Cup after they were handed a nightmare draw against Egyptian side Al-Masry SC.

Despite the Buffaloes drawing what seems a shot straw from the four Zambian sides in CAF clubs football competitions, their coach Bilton Musonda feels the draw is fair and his side will be ready for the encounter.

Buffaloes, who finished fourth in the just ended season, play the Cairo-based Al Masry,who also finished fourth in the Egyptian league, at preliminary round stage of the 2018 CAF Confederations Cup.

“We want to camp outside the country for about six weeks. We are just waiting on the (Zambia Army) Command to confirm with us but the draw is alright,” he said.

He said Al Masry may be a good side but so was Buffaloes who would prove their worth in the two encounters against the Egyptian side.

“In a nut shell, it’s a fair draw for us and we just hope that we execute our off-season programme and get into the game ready,” said Musonda, himself not new to continental football both as a player and coach.–Times of Zambia
