Kambole Speaks: Chiefs Debut, Amakhosi Faithful And Leopards…

Lazarous Kambole completed his first 90 minutes in Kaizer Chiefs colours over the weekend, playing his part in their opening day victory, but what comes next?
 
 
The 25-year-old attacker helped lead the line for Ernst Middendorp’s side, putting in a good shift in Tembisa as the Glamour Boys ran out as 3-2 winners over Highlands Park to end a hoodoo that has seen them fail to win an opening Absa Premiership game for several years.
 
Kambole, who reportedly cost Chiefs in the region of R4m, comes to Naturena with a big reputation, and he says that he’s happy with how things went against the Lions of North – even though he will be itching to get his first goal sooner rather than later.
 
Speaking to Chiefs’ official website about his Chiefs debut, Kambole said, “I really thought we must give the supporters something to celebrate by winning. I thought in the first half we dominated the game, but we relaxed after scoring and allowed Highlands to pressurise us. We handled it well and recovered. The fighting spirit carried us through, and we kept on fighting. At the end it was fantastic to win the match for the entire Chiefs family,”
 
On the topic of this weekend’s game, the attacker said, “I think this time I know what to expect in the PSL so it will be easy for me to adjust and release my potential... Also, I have played COSAFA matches in Durban recently, it is a very nice place and the pitch is nice too. Most importantly for us is to win our first game at home.”
 
 
Meanwhile, the attacker has been nominated as Player of the Year and Most Disciplined Player of the Year gongs at the Football Association of Zambia awards, and will be hoping to get lucky after missing out last year. 
 
The Zambian had the highest pass completion rate (78%) of any Chiefs player in Makhulong, but is still waiting for his first shot on target in Amakhosi colours.
