Defender Musa Mohammed cleared for Zambian league debut – VIDEO

Kenyan defender Musa Mohammed says he is ‘ready’ to face lethal compatriot Jesse Were in his debut match of the MTN Zambian Premier League.

The former Gor Mahia captain joined top Zambian club Nkana FC on a two-year contract from FK Tirana at the start of July.

He has however had to wait for two weeks to make his debut as his new employer sought to seek clearance from FIFA as well as his International Transfer Certificate from Albania.

With these transfer modalities now sorted, the 27-year old is set to make his debut for the Kitwe-based giants in a league clash against Zesco United in Ndola on Saturday.

Zesco is home to three Kenyan internationals namely Anthony Akumu, David Owino and Jesse Were.

“I played with Akumu and Owino at Gor Mahia,” Mohammed told Nairobi News.

“They are my friends and we know each other well. Akumu has even been visiting me here in Kitwe which is not far from Ndola,” he added.

“I know Jesse too. He is lethal and a quality player who has made a name for himself here in Zambia. Playing against him requires a lot of concentration and hopefully as a team we will manage to nullify his attacking threat.”

Zesco currently lead the Zambia 20-team table standings after 27 games while Nkana are placed fifth.
