”’Breaking News: Building For The Season.
Kambole joins Chiefs! Kaizer Chiefs have agreed on a deal to sign Lazalous Kambole from Zesco United FC on a three-year contract.
Kambole is 25 years old and will join Amakhosi effectively on 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2022,” reads the Thursday afternoon tweet.
Kambole was Jesse Were’s partner in Zesco United’s striking force and the two have helped the Ndola side win the 2017 and 2018 Zambian Super League titles. His latest conquest was however with the Zambian national team, helping the Chipolopolo win the 2019 COSAFA Cup in South Africa.
He says he knows too well the expectations in the PSL.
”I know that people will expect a lot from me because they know what I am capable of, they know what I can do, so they will be expecting that when I come here. I know the pressure that is at Chiefs, to tell you the truth I am equal to the task,” he says.
The roping in of Kambole is seen a move aimed at replacing Venezuelan striker Gustavo Paez with whom Chiefs have parted ways.
Kambole scored once against Kaizer Chiefs in their return match of the 2018-19 CAF Champions League season, a 3-1 win for the Zambian side in Ndola.
Jesse had managed two in the clash and was heavily rumored to be on the radar of the PSL giants.
