I’ll Kickstart Naze Millionaires’ Season – Chibambo

Heartland Football Club’s Zambia international, Signswonder Chibambo, is hopeful that his return to competitive football after more than eight weeks on the sidelines due to injury can help his side’s quest in the Premier League challenge.
With just 13 games to the close of the season, Chibambo is very confident that the Naze Millionaires can finish in the top two once again, as it has done in the past two seasons.
It would be recalled that Heartland formerly known as Iwuanyanwu Nationale finished with a point behind Kano Pillars in the 2007/2008 season and also missed out of the title last season when it garnered 67 points but finished three points behind titleholder, Bayelsa United.
The Zambian, who missed his country’s preparation for the last Africa Cup of Nations in Angola due to a hamstring injury, is not giving up on his side’s ambition to end its 17-year title drought.
He believes that it is possible that the Naze Millionaires can go on a run of 13 games without losing pointing to the fact that Bayelsa United achieved its title-winning feat on the back of an impressive run of not losing in more than 15 consecutive games last season.
“In football everything is possible. I returned from injury to score two goals shows that everything is possible in this game. We still have a good chance of winning the league or finishing in the top two. But I will prefer we win it, because we have the quality to win it. But it will be tough now because we are far away from the top. I have confidence that 13 games is plenty of games and the top teams can suffer bad form or even injuries to key players.
“Heartland suffered due to injuries and players leaving for new contracts abroad. Also, we had our own problems inside, which I believe will be solved. But the concentration is to do well in our last 13 games now and hope that the top teams fumble up there so that we can get our chance,” the 22-year-old Zambian said to
