News of Superleague return elates Fathi as he reiterates Napsa Stars continental ambitions
The news that the Zambia Super League will return next month has elated Napsa Stars gaffer Muhammad Fathi.
The Pensioners’ boss is happy that teams will finish the season on the pitch. Fathi feels his players will need about three weeks to regain full fitness after being out of action for over three months due to the Coronavirus epidemic.
“It’s a very good move from the President to motivate us to do our job and we thank him. We also appreciate FAZ for their effort in making sure we finish the league on the pitch because every team can express itself,” Fathi said.
” So far so good, we have done our homework in the gym and we need just three weeks to be ready for the games,” he added.
Fathi has reiterated that Napsa Stars’ main target this season is qualifying for continental football.
“Our target still remains to qualify for continental football by finishing in four. So far so good we are number 2 currently, We know what we need to do and our target. We will continue where we ended before quarantine,” he said.
” In Europe, they are also facing the same challenge and that’s why they have increased substitutions to five which helps because players are not the same and some may not recover full fitness in three/four weeks.”
The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has given clubs the green light to start training in small groups as of July 1st. The league is set to resume in the second half of July with 22nd being the tentative date.
