STRIKER Ronold Kampamba is looking forward to the challenge of playing Egyptian football following his move to Wadi Degla from Nkana.
The Zambia striker has joined Egyptian upstarts Degla on a three-and-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee from the record twelve-time Zambian league champions.
“I am very happy to be going. I am just hoping that we agree on my personal terms,” Kampamba said.
“Egyptians play very good football and I hope I can learn a lot from them.”
The striker is the second Zambia international to make a move to Egypt over the last seven months after midfielder Felix Katongo who joined Egyptian club Al Ittihad last August from Green Buffaloes.
Kampamba was part of Zambia’s 2015 Africa Cup team in Equatorial Guinea where he played one game.
He leaves Zambia after four successful seasons at Nkana where he won the FAZ Super Division golden boot twice in 2012 and 2013 scoring 15 and 18 goals respectively.
Meanwhile Zambia defender Stopilla Sunzu has no regrets about his recent move from French club Sochaux to Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua.
The 25-year-old defenders’ move to China from Europe at the prime of his career has been criticised just one year after joining Sochaux from DR Congo club TP Mazembe.
“It’s a very good move for me, a very good deal for me and I saw that when I signed it,” Sunzu said.
Sunzu, though, has not ruled out a return to Europe.
“I will play the best football there and will be back in Europe in due time,” Sunzu said.
The defender joins two compatriots in China.
Striker’s James Chamanga and Jacob Mulenga play for Liaoning Whowin and promoted Chinese club Shijiazhuang Yongchang respectively.
