Clubless Katongo To Retire

News coming out of Zambia is that former Jomo Cosmos and Arminia Bielefeld striker, Christopher Katongo, has announced that he will retire from international football after the 2015 Afcon Finals in Morocco.

According to the Times of Zambia, Katongo told ZNBC in a Sunday Interview, that he was available to play for the Chipolopolo until after the 2015 AFCON but would still remain active at club level.

”I still have energy to play for the national team and I think the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations will be my last at national level,” said Katongo.

“I will not be making any sense if I quit now because I am still needed and I can achieve more for the team. Let’s wait for 2015 and see where we can take the team,” added Katongo.

The 31-year-old striker said he still had potential to contribute positively to the future prospects of the Chipolopolo and that his experience with other senior players in the team, was needed to inspire the upcoming footballers.

Meanwhile, Katongo, who has been training with the Zambian side, Green Buffalos, following the expiry of his contract with Henan Jianye, has ruled out a return to the Chinese side.

”I am a free agent and at the moment the door is open to everybody, my agent is currently working out something where I can further my football career. But I am not going back to China unless they offer something big on the table,” concluded Katongo.
