Kaizer Chiefs striker Lazarous Kambole has admitted to the difficulties he’s faced since arriving at the club.
But there’s light at the end of the tunnel…
The Zambian international is finally off the mark after scoring in the 1-1 draw against Stellenbosch recently, but with Chiefs just one point ahead of Mamelodi Sundowns in the title race, Kambole would be relishing the opportunity to register his name on the scoresheet again to help Chiefs get over the line.
“It has been a while since I scored a goal. I remember I scored my last goal for my former team, Zesco against Zanaco Football on 22 June 2019 in the Absa cup final at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium. We won 4-1 to lift the trophy,” reflected Kambole, as quoted on Amakhosi’s website.
“The goal draught period has not been easy for me,” he continued. “I had to work hard and use the negative feedback to build my courage and to turn everything into positivity. I am proud to have passed through that phase and looking forward to greater things.”
“I knew that God’s time is the best time. I came off the bench at half time when we were a goal down. I recall 5 minutes before half time I started praying asking God to let this be an end to the waiting. Yes, indeed when we needed someone to make a difference, my breakthrough came. I got a chance and scored.”
Now the focus turns to Mamelodi Sundowns, who they clash against today at Orlando Stadium (18:00).
“Playing Sundowns will be a very difficult game. Sundowns are a good team, play good football and they are title contenders. Both teams stand a chance of winning the game. We will give it our all to win it. We just need to stick to our plan and unleash our power to continue leading the log,” he added.
