Zambian duo makes Bundesliga Team of the Season


Patson Daka and Enock Mwepu have made the Austrian Bundesliga Team of the Season.

The duo had an impressive 2020/21 campaign as RB Salzburg won the league title and the Austrian Cup.

Mwepu played 29 league games scoring five goals and assisting another one strike. He also featured eight times in the Uefa Champions as Salzburg got knocked out in the group stage phase of the competition.

Daka’s 27 goals and four assists in 28 appearances helped him win the Bundesliga Player of the Season and top goal scorer award. This was the striker’s best season since moving from Kafue Celtic in 2017.

Salzburg have now won eight consecutive titles as they continue their dominance on the domestic front.

It remains to be seen whether the duo will be at the Red Bull Arena next season with reports suggesting that they are looking to make the next moves in their careers.

Despite several offers from some of Europe’s biggest clubs at the beginning of the season, the talented youngsters decided to stay with Salzburg – a decision that has paid off.

Zambia failed to qualify for the 2021 Afcon after finishing in third spot on their group behind Algeria and Zimbabwe in group H.
