ZESCO United coach George Lwandamina is not excited with winning back-to-back Super Division titles as he is eyeing more glory both locally and on the continent.
In an interview after Zesco clinched the 2015 Super Division title on Wednesday, Lwandamina said he is targeting more titles.
Zesco drew 1-1 with Forest Rangers at Dola Hill Ground in Ndola to garner an unassailable 64 points with two matches remaining.
“It’s good to be cool and that is when you make good decisions. If you move by the wind you make bad decisions along the way. I know it’s good to be in this state but you have to be level-headed.
“We have been in this game for a quite some time and we should not get excited with what we have achieved. I know there are better things to come,” Lwandamina said.
He said he does not compete with anyone.
“I don’t compete with anyone but with myself as ‘Chicken’ George,” said Lwandamina, who won a double with the club in his first season last year.
Zesco won the Super Division and Barclays Cup titles.
Meanwhile, Lwandamina said the team will strategise for the 2016 CAF Champions League.

“We will go back into planning and I am sure this time around we are going to make a good plan which will make us advance further than we did this year,” he said.
Zesco were eliminated in the first round this year losing 5-4 on penalties to Guinean side AS Kaloum after tying 2-2 on aggregate over two legs.
And Forest coach Kaunda Simonda saluted his charges for collecting a point.
“Congratulations to Zesco; they have worked hard for the title since the league started, but I must salute my players for their performances that has managed to keep us in Super League,” Simonda said.
