Goalie Mweene cautions Sundowns


GOALKEEPER Kennedy Mweene has warned his club Mamelodi Sundowns not to underestimate Zesco United when they two sides meet in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) semi-final first leg tie this Saturday at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

Mweene who is Chipolopolo goal minder said Sundowns had done their homework but still needed to be cautious of the Zambian League champions.

He said Zesco had a powerful frontline and could pull a surprise if underestimated.

“Zesco has a good frontline. They have dangerous players in the name of winger Clatous Chama and striker Jesse Were. If we do not pay attention to them, they can hammer us. I believe it will be a tough encounter, but we have done our homework,” he said.

He said Zesco had a good coach  in George Lwandamina who was familiar with African football.

“Zesco has a good coach who drilled Green Buffaloes in the Champions League, so he knows how to play in Africa.

He has experience and has instilled a lot of skills in the players,” he said.

Mweene said Sundowns were coming to Ndola to win and will not let Zesco frustrate their mission.

This would be the two-side second meeting since the pre-season international friendly in 2014.

Meanwhile, Zesco intensified preparation for the forth-coming crucial match.

Zesco last Sunday beat Mufulira Blackpool in a Super Division Week 25 match which was a dress rehearsal ahead of the continental fixture.
