Lazarous Kambole opens up on Kaizer Chiefs struggles


Kaizer Chiefs forward Lazarous Kambole has opened up on his struggles at Naturena after arriving under much fanfare at the beginning of the season.

Kambole’s move to Chiefs in June 2019 saw him equal Zesco United’s record player sale at a cost of $200 000, which equates to R3.3-million at the current exchange rate.

The highly rated Zambian international made headlines when he bagged the fastest hat-trick in CAF Champions League history after netting three times in just five minutes against Eswatini outfit Mbabane Swallows in the 2018 continental campaign.

The 26-year-old, however, has failed to find the back of the net for Amakhosi in 660 minutes of action thus far, and has now come out to explain this statistic.

“It has been a season of adaptation for me. I have gotten used to the coach’s philosophy, the environment, the style of play and have a better understanding of my teammates. We are headed in the right direction,” Kambole explained on Chiefs’ official website.

With the 2019/20 season still incomplete and The Glamour Boys sitting at the summit of the Absa Premiership table, the lanky attacker is confident the team will maintain their form if and when competition resumes.

“We are professionals and we know how to handle the challenges that lie ahead. Being the log leaders requires a lot of hard work from the team because the pressure is on us,” he added.

“Response from each player is good and we are working in the right direction and I am certain we will continue from where we left off before the lockdown.”
