Jesse Were toasts Zesco triumphBy Nyambe Lubasi on 4 Dec 2017
Zesco United striker Jesse Were says winning the 2017 FAZ Super Division title was more important than chasing this seasons Golden Boot.
Were scored a brace on Saturday in Zesco’s 4-2 home win over demoted Mufulira Wanderers at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola that handed his team its sixth league title.
But his brace, that took his league tally to 18 goals, was not enough to catch Lusaka Dynamos striker Chris Mugalu who walked away with the Golden Boot on 21 goals.
“All I can say about the golden boot is I must congratulate him because he beat me to it,” Were said.
“For me, my target was to score goals for the team that helped the team and I am satisfied with that.
“About the top scorer it hasn’t hurt me that so much because we had only one thing in my mind and that was winning the league.”
Zesco finished one point ahead of their predecessors Zanaco on 74 and 73 points respectively.
Were added that he never doubted they would lift the title despite seeing their lead dwindle for five, to three and later one point over the last fortnight.
“We didn’t have any pressure because we knew these things happen in football but we keep our cool, we pushed until the last minute, and here we are, we have just lifted the trophy,” the Kenyan international said.Related Items
