Kambole delighted to end goal drought


Lazarous Kambole could not hide his delight after breaking his 420-day Kaizer Chiefs goal drought for the club over the weekend.

In the absence of the injured Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro, Kambole was afforded a spot in Kaizer Chiefs' matchday squad for Saturday's match against Kaizer Chiefs and took his chance with a late goal in the 4-0 rout over the Chilli Boys.

The 27-year-old's effort, which came just five minutes following his introduction to the game, was his first league goal for the club since 23 August last year, when he netted in a 1-1 draw against Stellenbosch FC.

Reflecting on his performance, the Zambian could not hide his delight at breaking his goal drought and pledged to keep working hard in order to make the most of any opportunities which may present themselves to him in future.

"It is good to be back in the team. To be on the scoresheet is a great feeling and I am happy for the team and I am happy for the goal," Kambole told KaizerChiefs.com. "I am hoping that going forward I can score more goals for the team."

"The most important thing is to focus on the things you can change. You just have to continue working hard and the goals will come. I have to put in a lot of effort in training and pray for more goals to come."

Kambole joined Chiefs from Zambian giants Zesco United in 2019 and has made 49 appearances for the club to date, with a milestone 50th appearance for the club now potentially on the cards when the Amakhosi play SuperSport United this coming weekend.
