I give credit to my players because this has been the most competitive league season,” Mumamba, who coached Zambia’s Under-20 side in the regional COSAFA competition, told his club’s website.
“I came in to try and strengthen the team by bring in young players so that they could blend together with the more experienced players for us to get results. I think the young ones have made a bigger difference. They have injected in a lot of energy in the team with the senior players supplementing.
