Zesco face Ngozi in CAF clashBy Joseph Mwenda on 10 Mar 2017
The battle of Serbia is set to steal the spotlight tonight at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola when hosts Zesco United and Le Messager Ngozi clash in a 2017 CAF Confederation Cup first round, first leg match.
The clash will see compatriot’s Zlatko Krmpotic of Zesco test his wits against Ngozi coach Momlic Medic.
Medic said on Thursday afternoon on arrival in Ndola that he was looking forward to his reunion with Krmpotic who is also his contemporary from their playing days in the then ex-Yugoslavia.
“Honestly speaking I don’t know his style of play but we know each other from long time ago,” Medic said.
“We played football at the same time but for different teams. After that, I really don’t know how he has been doing but I believe this game will be a tactical one.”
Meanwhile, Medic and Krmpotic will be making their continental debuts with their respective clubs.
However, Zesco coach Krmpotic comes armed with some continental pedigree after winning the 2015 CAF Champions League with DR Congo giants TP Mazembe as assistant coach to Frenchman Patrice Carteron.
Krmpotic told journalist that he is satisfied with the input of his players and that he is hopeful that his team will claim victory.
“I am now satisfied that my boys will carry the day. We have trained well and it is now upto the boys to put the best,” said Krmpotic.
Ngozi on the other hand will be making only their second continental club cup outing after making a first round exit in their debut appearance in 2015 following their promotion in 2012.
The 12-year-old club has also been on the rise in Burundi during Medic’s two-year reign winning two cup titles and finishing second in 2016 to secure their Confederation Cup ticket this year.Related Items
