Katongo wants one more overseas shot


Former Zambia captain Christopher Katongo says that he is hoping for one more shot overseas before contemplating hanging up his boots.
Katongo returned home in June after ten years abroad on a journey that took him to South Africa, Europe, China and back to the PSL before rejoining FAZ Super League club Green Buffaloes.
His presence at Buffaloes has almost been instant despite a spate of injuries scoring four competitive goals and helping the Lusaka-based army side to their first top four league finish since 2010.
But Katongo capped his six months back by inspiring Buffaloes to their maiden victory in the Barclays Cup in which he scored one goal in a 2-0 final win over Nkwazi on November 21 at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.
“It has been a short period of time since I reestablished myself and after too many injuries. I don’t know this (two off-season) break might will cost me but I will keep on fighting and looking forward to playing outside for one or two more years and then maybe I can cool off,” Katongo said.
“I am too young to retire, I still have the energy.”
Katongo left Buffaloes in 2004 to join Jomo Cosmos in South Africa before heading to Denmark where he played for Brondby.
The 2012 Africa Cup winning captain later featured for Armenia Bielfeld in Germany, Xanthi in Greece, Henan Jianye of China before returning to South Africa in 2014 to play for Bidvest Wits.
