FORMER Zambia prolific forward Collins Mbesuma says it is just a matter of time before his Zambian compatriot, Lazarous Kambole, return to his former self where he scored amazing goals in all competitions.

Kambole has struggled for form at Kaizer Chiefs in South Africa after making a hyped switch from Zambian giants Zesco United in June 2019, where he has been confined to the bench in most of the games, only featuring in a paltry 12 games so far.

Towards the end of last year, there were suggestions that Kambole was contemplating a homecoming switch to his former Ndola-based club as he believed he was being frozen out by the coach who was not giving him enough game time.

But despite his stuttering start to football in South Africa, Mbesuma believes Kambole will resurrect from his current misfiring malaise.

Mbesuma recounts that when he joined Kaizer Chiefs in 2004, he did not immediately make an impact but that his confidence levels only raised after scoring his first goal and that this is the same patch Kambole is going through, which he said he would shrug off with time.

“Chiefs are a big team and there is a lot of pressure. When I joined Chiefs in 2004 I struggled in the beginning but after I scored, everything came right. I think Lazarous must keep calm. This happens to anyone when he is in a new environment. Lazarous will adapt and will show his best soon.

“All he needs is to score one goal. Lazarous has played in African Champions League and won many trophies in Zambia. I speak to him and all Zambian players in South Africa all the time. And I give them advice,” Mbesuma said as quoted by the The Sun

Mbesuma scored a record 35 goals in all competitions (25 in the league) for Chiefs during the 2004/05 campaign and he also walked away with the PSL Player of the Season award.
