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.
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.
“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.
