Zambia Super League side Nkana FC has confirmed willingness to let Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba move on.
The experienced striker surprised the club’s fans last week by revealing he won’t sign on when his deal with the Bankers runs out in 2021. “Sate Sate” cited a lack of appreciation as his reason.
“I have always loved and supported Nkana. I appreciate the supporters, they are always encouraging me but generally I don’t feel appreciated by the club,’ Kampamba told ZNBC.
“I am not extending my contract because I and my family are not happy with what is happening. I want to make another step. I want a new challenge and probably move to a different club abroad,” Kampamba said.
Nkana Chief Executive Officer Charles Chakatazya made himself available to clear the story while showing no desire or regret to lose Kampamba.
“The contract is due up to June 2021 so it is too early for him to announce that (he won’t renew his contract). But if he has offers we will not block him from leaving,” Chakatazya said.
“Players come and go. There have been many players at Nkana. We cannot block a player from leaving just because he is a figure. We had Evans Kangwa who was a figure but he is now playing outside. If it is career progression we can’t block him,” he added.
