The players are marksman, Ronald Kampamba and defence pillar, Christopher Munthali who are both injured but are reportedly playing competitive games at their club despite carrying the injuries.
This has prompted Zambia national soccer team, Team Doctor Joseph Kabungo to order their club against their continued usage.
He said the continued use of the players would aggravate their current injuries hence missing CAF Confederation Cup crucial encounter against Ivory Coast’s Sewe Sport next week.
Kabungo told the Post Online Tuesday that Munthali needs a two-week break to fully recover from a groin injury.
While Kampamba needs to undergo Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan to determine the extent of his knee injury before he can be given a nod to feature in competitive matches.
“It is sad that players are allowed to play despite having injuries .Kampamba has, in my view been carrying this injury for over a fortnight now and it is not good for him to continue like that.
It is not good for his career and for the nation at large. This is why we want to conduct the scan to see the extent of the injury,” he explained.
Meanwhile, Kampamba was expected to undergo MRI scan at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka while for Munthali the team doctor has advised his club Coach Beston Chambeshi not to use him until he fully recovers.
Kabungo justified his decision saying he was concerned with their personal well being and that the dual were key players to the country’s national team success.
He has meanwhile advised clubs not to use players when they have sustained injuries and allow those invited for national team training to report so that he can have a further look at them.
“Let me take this opportunity to urge clubs against using players who are injured and they should be allowing these players invited for the national team to report so that we can check on them and help each other,” he was quoted by The Post Online as saying.
The Zambian national soccer team has pitched a training camp in Lusaka in preparation for 2015 Africa Cup of Nations group qualifiers to kick off in few weeks time.
