Zesco want Kambole return

Lazarous Kambole celebrates scoring for Zesco United against Etoile Sportive Du Sahel in 2018

Zesco United are keen to re-sign former striker Lazarous Kambole following his struggles at Kaizer Chiefs.

The 27-year-old Zambian international frontman joined Amakhosi from the Super League side in 2019 and has scored just one goal in 27 DStv Premiership appearances, with a total of 12 goals in 63 appearances in all competitions.

He was an integral part of the Zesco side that impressed in the CAF Champions League in 2016, 2017 and 2018; breaking records with the fastest hat-trick in the competition's history.

This season, Kambole has played a bit-part role at Chiefs while missing out on international call-ups for his country.

Speaking to Kick Off, Zesco boss Mumamba Numba said: "Of course he has struggled to settle down in South Africa. I think this is something that we are looking at.

"If it can be possible, we have a chat with his employers that side so that maybe we can bring him so that we can resuscitate his career. I think him not having game time that side is not good for a player of his calibre.

"I think he needs to be playing week in week out so that he can be at his best that as it is now he is not having too much game time which has affected his performance that is why his performance seems to have gone down.

"But I think we'll try and see if it can be possible to bring him back here so that we can help him resuscitate his career."
