Kaizer Chiefs make Lazarous Kambole Zesco United's record transfer - report


Kaizer Chiefs have made new acquisition Lazarous Kambole one of Zesco United's record transfers, according to reports.

Kambole joined The Glamour Boys on a three-year deal, which was confirmed by both clubs on Tuesday evening, after football manager Bobby Motaung concluded the club-to-club agreement with Zegalacticos CEO Richard Mulenga.

The transfer fee paid by Chiefs for their new record-breaking striker has since been leaked by a Zambian football publication, who also released figures of the forward's salary.

Zambianfootball.news have reported that Kambole cost Amakhosi a handsome sum of $200 000, which equates to just under R3-million at the current exchange rate.

This is said to have equalled Zesco's previous record transfer of Congolese striker Idris Mbombo to Saudi Arabian club Al Shabaab in July 2017.

The same website also reports that the 25-year-old is set to earn in the region of K89 000 per month, which is around R1,2-million per annum, "away from other add-ons such as allowances and bonuses."

The Chipolopolo attacker is also the record holder of the fastest CAF Champions League hat-trick, when he bagged three goals in the space of just five minutes against Eswatini outfit Mbabane Swallows last year.
