ZESCO United’s prodigal son Lazarus Kambole has returned home after 3 and half years away.
Kambole rejoins ZESCO United on a six months loan deal from Tanzanian outfit Young Africans Sports Club (YANGA).
“ZESCO United is delighted to announce the signing of Lazarus Kambole on a six-months loan move from Tanzanian giants, Young Africans.
United have reached an agreement with Young Africans allowing Kambole to reunite with coach George Lwandamina for the rest of the season.”
The 28-year-old attacking midfielder’s career shot to stardom at ZESCO United before securing a move to South African giants Kaizer Chiefs in 2019 before moving to Young Africans.
“Kambole will be a huge boost to the ZESCO United squad especially at a time when Lwandamina is working tirelessly to build a strong side.”
Kambole joined Yanga in June last year following three difficult seasons at Naturena, where he struggled for game time.
Kambole arrived at Chiefs with a high profile after being a top performer in the Zambian Super League for Zega Mambo, having also been their standout player in the Caf Champions League.
Kambole made headlines across the African continent when he scored a hat-trick in five minutes in a Caf Champions League match against Eswatini giants Mbabane Swallows.
Caf later confirmed that Kambole’s hat-trick is the fastest recorded in the history of the continental tournament.
Kambole boasts of 7 goals for the Copper Bullets in 15 appearances.
