Zesco United coach Zlatko Zesco United coach Zlatko Krmpotic is not surprised by his sides prolific form at the start of their 2017 FAZ Super Division campaign.
Zesco have scored six goals and conceded just one goal in two league matches played so far.
Krmpotic said the team is is being fueled for domestic football by their away form in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup where they are unbeaten with two draws in as many games.
“This is their job this is normal in football. We play this kind of football all the time we scored two goals in Nigeria, two goals in Burundi and away to Power Dynamos (In the Charity Shield) we scored four goals so it is not a surprise,” Krmpotic said.
In continental football, Zesco finished 2-2 away to Le Messager Ngozi of Burundi and by the same margin against Enugu Rangers in Nigeria after winning 2-0 and 3-0 at home respectively.
Zesco also beat Power 4-2 in the Charity Shield semifinals and later defeated Nkana 2-0 in the final of the same competition.
Meanwhile, Zesco could go top of the FAZ Super Division on Wednesday if they beat fellow unbeaten side Nakambala Leopards in Mazabuka.
Second placed Zesco have six points, one behind leaders Lumwana Radiants while Nakambala are 9th on 4 points heading into their delayed Week 2 match.
