Coach Numba Mumamba has saluted his Zesco United players for delivering the 2020/21 FAZ/MTN Super League championship in fashion.
Zesco saw off struggling Napsa Stars 2-0 over the weekend to seal the championship with three games to spare.
It was Mumamba’s first league title with Zesco and the ninth for the Lusaka based club.
The former Zambia under-20 coach has said refused to bask in own glory saying team-work helped earn the title.
“I am very excited lifting the championship with three games to spare. I came here for a job and I am happy we have achieved our objectives. I give credit to my players because this has been the most competitive league season.
“This wasn’t easy for any team but we rose to the occasion and we have been crowned champions. It is a good welcome for us as the new technical bench. We are very grateful to the players. We will work hard to achieve more,” Mumamba told Zesco United website www.zescounitedfc.co.zm.
“I came in to try and strengthen the team by bring in young players so that they could blend together with the more experienced players for us to get results. I think the young ones have made a bigger difference. They have injected in a lot of energy in the team with the senior players supplementing.”
Zesco have ammassed unassailable 64 points from 31 games, a distant 11 points ahead of second-placed Zanaco FC.
On the other hand, things are looking murkier for Zambia’s Confederation Cup representatives, Napsa who are third from bottom of the 18-member log table.
