Striker Jesse Were reflects on his Kansanshi Dynamos debut over the weekend away at Zanaco in Lusaka.

Were joined Kansanshi on January 4 following a decorated five-year stay at nine-time winners Zesco United where he won four league titles and scored a record 102 goals for the defending FAZ Super League champions.

The Kenyan striker also marked his first game for Kansanshi with a goal but his equaliser was not enough for Kansanshi who went on to lose 2-1 to Zanaco on January 7.

“I know I have come to a young team and we lost in my first game but we can see the team work and the enterprising play on the pitch which is more encouraging for us,” Were said.

“Unfortunately, we are still looking for the winning touch which I definitely know will come.  We just have to take it one game at a time.”

Were said he is hoping to show leadership at Kansanshi after joining the promoted club on a two-year deal.

He showed one of those attributes when he stepped up to convert a 62nd minute penalty in that loss to Zanaco.

“It was just a matter of leadership and experience because it is a young team,” Were said.

“I was welcomed well when I came and I was told I should lead them and that is what I did when I took the penalty and I scored. It looked like we were going to win, unfortunately we didn’t but it’s all football.”

Kansanshi are currently 13th on the log with 20 points, thirteen points behind leaders Red Arrows from 18 matches played that marked the start of the second half of the season over the weekend.
