Zambian midfielder Klings Kangwa says he will do his talking on the pitch when he starts his life with his new side, FK Crvena Zvezda Beograd (Red Star Belgrade).
Kangwa was responding questions from Serbian journalists during his unveiling.
The nimble footed midfielder was unveiled by the Serbian giants on Monday and has been handed jersey number 20.
“I don’t want to say much, I want to do my talking on the pitch. It was an amazing feeling when it happened. I am looking forward to starting working and meeting everyone. The fans will see for themselves, the reason why am here,” he said.
Fascinated by his name Kings, he was asked if he can be the new king of Belgrade and whether he can be better than their adored Gabonese midfielder Guélor Kanga Kaku.
“Yes, Definitely I can. I know the player, he is good, I promise to work hard and do my best,” Kangwa said.
The Zambian international has already worked with a former Red Star manager in Miodrag Bozovic and was asked about his relationship with the man from Montenegro.
Kangwa was quick to recall his fond memories of him and good working relationship that allowed him to flourish at Arsenal Tula.
“I spoke to him about the team and what I am expected to give to the team. I am just looking forward to starting working and the league to start,” he said.
“He was like a parent and gave the support so that I was free to do everything in needed to do.”
The midfielder left for Serbia on Wednesday last week after helping the Chipolopolo Boys to a 2-1 win over Comoros in a Ivory Coast 2023 AFCON qualifier with a sublime late free kick goal.
The Happy Hearts product has promised the fans to expect similar goals as the seasons start next month.
“Yes, you have to expect and be ready for that,” he said.
The 22-year-old midfield genius is believed to have cost the Serbian giants €800,000 (over K14 million). Kangwa will start training today ahead of the kick-off of the new season in July.
