ZESCO United coach George Lwandamina says although his side beat Sonidep 2-1, it still requires final drilling in some areas saying CAF’s changed calendar disturbed the squad’s preparations.
Lwandamina’s boys beat Sonidep of Niger in their backyard but were not satisfied with their first half performance. In a statement availed to the media yesterday, Lwandamina noted the need for his side to find a way of juggling CAF games as well as fixing his weak links in the squad.
“We beat Sonidep on home soil but I am not pleased with my boys’ performance especially in the first half. They could have done better because they were evidently struggling. The result would have been different if Sonidep utilised the chances they had in the first half. We only settled and gained composure in the second half,” he said.
And Lwandamina also said that ZESCO’s win over Sonidep was an indication that it is a good team despite having fumbled in the first half.
“Mine is a good side that did not even play any preparatory match and just dived into CAF. If we had enough preparations, we could be at a higher level in terms of performance but I am sure we will settle and display a better game as we proceed,” said Lwandamina.
