Nkana F.C will clash with Mbabane Swallows of Swaziland in the CAF Champions league MTN Super League Champions Nkana F.C are ready for their forthcoming clash against Mbabane Swallows of Swaziland in the CAF Champions league.
Speaking in an interview with the Lusaka Star, Nkana team manager Charles Chakatazya said the boys are well prepared for the first leg match to be played on 9th February, 2014 at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobamba, Swaziland.
“We are ready and are just winding up with the preparations for the match against Swallows,” he said.
Chakatazya added that the participation of the 12 time Zambian League Champions in the four team tournament which was held in Lubumbashi, Congo D.R was a good experience for the team as it helped them assess the players in terms of how ready they were for the Champions League.
He noted that the tournament that saw Nkana come out as Champions after beating the home team, TP Mazembe 3-2, was used to prepare the team for the forth coming season of the MTN Super League.
Meanwhile, Chakatazya revealed that the team would not make any new signings this season.
“Evans Kangwa who was reported to be on a move to the Spanish side Recreativo Huelva has returned to the club to boost the striking department of the team,” he adds.
The team manager explained that Kangwa would feature in the central role as a number 9 in order to fill the gaps left by Festus Mbewe who was on loan to South African side Golden Arrows.
He said that Kangwa’s return to the club is a huge boost in the team's Champions league aspirations.
The Kitwe based club are the only Zambian team to have reached the finals of the CAF Champions League. Nkana lost 5-3 on penalties to Algerian side JS Kabyile in 1990 after an aggregate score of 1-1 across two legs.
Michael is supporting the team behind the Luska Star. He is a big fan of Zambia and loves to work with the local talents at UNZA.
