Dynamos new signing Kabwe bullish


Zambian international Derrick Kabwe says he is coping with the pressure that comes with playing for a foreign club, has quickly adapted to the Dynamos style of play and believes he will make a mark if given the chance.

The former Zesco United striker arrived at the Zimbabwean champions last week alongside fellow countryman and team mate Arthur Kaseloka who plays as a midfielder.

Kabwe said Dynamos play a passing game similar to what he was used to at his former club.

He said this has made life a lot easier for him as he had quickly adjusted to the teams pattern of play.
He said the experience he got at Zesco United where he played in the Champions League will help him at his new club The type of play here at Dynamos is similar to Zesco United.

Both teams play a passing game and I am used to that and this has made life a lot easier for me. I have adapted quickly and hope to do well for my new club.

I have played in the Champions League before at Zesco United and that experience will help me, said the Zambian import.

Kabwe pulled a muscle during the teams training last week and hopes to start training tomorrow. I pulled a muscle at training and have been feeling pain but its not that serious. I hope to start training on Tuesday, he said.

The Dynamos recruit, who turns 26 in November, however, refused to be compared with former Zambian players Francis Kasanda, Sandras Kumwenda and Clive Mwale who played for the Zimbabwe champions before and performed considerably well during their stint at the club.

Kabwe said: I am my own player and I cannot be judged by what others have done. I should be judged by what I will do for Dynamos if I am given the chance. I can do even better than those guys if I get the chance to play, said Kabwe.

The Zambian pair was bought for $30 000 by Dynamos after signing two year deals.

However, it remains to be seen whether Kabwe will be able to force his way into a starting lineup of a forward line that includes Rodreck Mutuma, Martin Vengesayi, Tineyi Chitora and veteran Takesure Chinyama.

Chinyama though is likely to be snapped up by an Egyptian club after he was invited there for trials.
