Kaizer Chiefs attacker Lazalous Kambole is looking forward to playing again in order to aid his charges continue with their quest for a fifth Absa Premiership title.
The 26-year-old Zambian international is yet to net a goal for Chiefs since joining the club back in August last year, but is rather focused on team performance and enjoy playing again.
“We are doing well as a team and personally, I feel good. Training has been fantastic this week and I am very much enjoying being back,” he told the club’s official website.

Kambole expressed his happiness at how he has been able to adjust to the training regime instilled by the team.
“My body is managing with the training regime since we returned. I am happy with my fitness because even during the lockdown when we were training on our own, we were pushing ourselves hard. Training as a group was a challenge for the first week after we returned, but right now, I am happy with everything.
“I am putting in a lot of hard work looking and forward to resuming play again. As a team, we are on right track and we are doing a lot to ensure that we will be ready when we play our first game,” he added.
The Chipolopolo striker asserted that they know what’s at stake as they look to consolidate their spot at the summit of the Absa Premiership standings.

Response from each player is good and we are working in the right direction and I am certain we will continue from where we left off before the lockdown.
“It has been a season of adaptation for me. I have gotten used to the coach’s philosophy, the environment, the style of play and have a better understanding of my teammates. We are headed in the right direction,” Kambole said.
