TP Mazembe skipper Rainford Kalaba says it will be an emotional return facing Zesco United where he made a name 10 years ago before trekking to Europe.
Kalaba who left the Ndola giants to join Portuguese side FC Braga in 2008 said in an interview in Ndola yesterday that he is expecting a tough CAF Champions League first round return leg tomorrow at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
Mazembe beat Zesco 1-0 in Lubumbashi last Sunday and a goalless draw will be enough for the Democratic Republic of Congo giants to remain in the competition while the latter need to score two unanswered goals to advance to the group stage.
“I think it will be very emotional for me to come back where I started before making my name in Zambian football. But that does not give me much pressure because it is always expected to face this kind of situation when you are a footballer.
