Zesco United have swiftly moved to replace their legendary forward Jesse Were following the unveiling of Angolan-born striker Pedro Miguel.

The 25-year-old striker joins the defending FAZ Super League champions from FAZ National Division One club Trident FC.

Miguel replaces the 32-year-old Kenyan-born striker who was released on December 30 after five years at Zesco where he left with a club record 102 goals.

The Angolan comes with quite a reputation from the second tier where he has scored 14 goals in seventeen matches for his former club Trident.

Trident are currently sixth on the second tier log on 28 points, a point outside the top four promotion slots at the halfway point of the season.

“We have observed Miguel for a while, and we are impressed with what we have seen. He is a good addition to our squad especially that Jesse is no longer with us. We are positive he will be a great addition to our team,” Zesco Technical Chairman, Peter Mutale told Zesco United media.

Miguel is Zesco’s first signing in the January transfer window and arrives at the nine-time Zambian champions just days after Were and Zimbabwean midfielder Tafadzwa Rusike were released by the Ndola club.

It is not the first time Zesco has signed a prolific marksman from the second tier of the FAZ League.

In January 2016, Zesco signed DR Congo-born striker Idris Mbombo from Kabwe Warriors just months after his 23 goals in the 2015 season secured their FAZ Super League promotion.
