‘Chiefs Isn’t Playing Kambole Right’

A change of position has been suggested for Zambian international Lazarous Kambole to boost his chances of regular game time at Kaizer Chiefs.

Since joining Chiefs from Zambian topflight club Zesco United in 2019, Kambole has struggled for regular game time and to replicate the form that made him a household name back home.

Under Gavin Hunt this past season, the 27-year-old made only four starts in the DStv Premiership and has failed to score a single goal.

Zambian agent and a close friend of Kambole, Nawa Nyambe, is hopeful that things could still change for the better for the attacker, following the appointment of Stuart Baxter as the club’s new head coach. 

“Lazarous Kambole is a good friend of mine and I feel that Chiefs haven’t really given him that chance to play him right. Chiefs isn’t playing him right. The way he played at Zesco isn’t the same way that they are playing him. I think at Chiefs they are trying to play him behind the strikers and that is not his position. He would flourish more playing from the wing and cutting inside and when playing as one of the forwards,” said Nyambe, speaking to the Siya crew.

Kambole will be entering into the last year of his contract, although Amakhosi are expected to make a decision about the squad for next season, following the technical team changes. 

“That’s how they played him at Zesco United, but I have noticed that at Chiefs they have been trying to play him differently. He is a fast player, and you can’t play him as a centre-forward. For example, (Samir) Nurkovic is a centre-forward, and if you play Nurkovic as a number nine, Kambole should come from the wing and allow him to run with the ball, he is that kind of a player,” said Nyambe.
