Super League giants Zesco United feel that in Makwatta they have the man to bring league glory.
Makwatta arrived from Kenya with a prolific 13 goals four assists in 15 games - before quickly adding two goals for Zesco in the Super League.
Zesco jumped on Facebook to express due credit after the Kenyan’s latest goal in last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Power Dynamos.
"[Makwatta is] a natural goal poacher; Makwatta’s goal scoring exploits are well documented in his home country, Kenya where he lit up the Kenyan league for his goal-scoring abilities," Zesco wrote.
"Makwatta combines fearsome pace and power with intelligent movements on and off the ball and of course his finishing abilities. Makwatta is also excellent at holding the ball; bringing his team-mates into play.
"His debut goal for Zesco United against Mufulira Wanderers barely days after agreeing to join the Super League champions was a clear show of Makwatta’s abilities to dispatch goals at will."
"The Kenyan prolific striker, dazzled the Zesco United fans when he doubled his goal tally in his second game against Kitwe giants, Power Dynamos. It is not shocking that Makwatta’s name is already music to the ears of many Zesco United faithful.
"It is already evident that John Mark Makwatta is a great catalyst to Zesco United’s quest to remain at the summit of the Zambian game."
Up next is another league game trip to NAPSA Stars on Sunday 23 February at 15:00.
