Nkana striker Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba says he is saddened that macho defender Idriss Ilunga Mbombo has left the club adding that his absence will be greatly felt by everyone at the club.

The 2012 and 2013 super league top scorer also described his former club mate as an inspirational player and a fighter that could give up in a game after the final whistle.

In an interview with Goal Diggers! Kampamba noted that it would be difficult to find an ultimate replacement for Mbombo saying the Congolese had an intact team spirit and undoubted endurance on the pitch.

“The guy was just amazing, although those that were not close to him think otherwise. He was able to push us to our full potential and actually revive our winning morale. He has so much passion for the game and always wanted to ensure that everyone do performed better in the team,” said Kampamba.

The Congolese striker on 27th October, 2018 signed a 2-year deal with Al-Hilal Omdurman of Sudan and is expected to be instrumental in the side’s CAF Champions league campaign.

Mbombo, who is former Zesco United goal poacher and one of Zambian Super league leading goal scorer joins the club from Zambian giants Nkana where he was on a loan deal from a Saudi club.
