Power Dynamos coach Danny Kabwe is pleased with what he has seen so far from striker Alex Ngonga in his first two games since rejoining them this month.
Ngonga officially returned to Power this month just two seasons after he left the Kitwe side to join Gabonese champions CS Mounana.
The striker has however been training with Power since January while pursuing his release from Mounana.
Last Saturday, Ngonga scored his first goal back in Power’s 3-1 home win over Lumwana Radiants at Arthur Davies Stadium inkitwe and created one for Luka Lungu’s brace.
“It is quite positive, he showed good character and he wants to show people that he is back and that is what we need,” Kabwe said.
Ngonga was a live-wire for most of the 85 minute minutes he was on the pitch, before he was replaced by Martin Kuyewa, and kept Lumwana’s defence and goalkeeper Charles Mweemba busy.
“Because If he is taking things personal, with individual brilliance, then we have a striker,” Kabwe added.
Ngonga return could also ease 4th placed Power’s attacking headache with uncertainty over Fwayo Tembo’s future who went AWOL last Friday on the eve of the Lumwana match.
The striker was Power’s 2014 player of the year when he scored 10 goals that season when they finished second in the league and three in their 2015 CAF Confederation Cup outing before moving to Gabon.
Meanwhile, Kabwe had very little say about Fwayo’s imminent departure.
“To be honest with you I don’t know what has led his absence. He has been training very well with the team, he is senior player, he is a professional and he knows the repercussions of such actions,” Kabwe said.
“He knows what he wants to achieve in life, but again, he is a professional player.”
