‘Sate Sate’ eyes Belgium move

ROBINSON KUNDA, Dakar
STRIKER Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba is eager to move to Belgium and embark on a successful professional career.
Kampamba said in an interview on Wednesday that he has not been featuring for Egyptian side Wadi Degla in the last few months because of his pending transfer to Belgian second division side Lierse.
“My international transfer certificate has already been sent to the Belgian Football Federation so I haven’t been playing in Egypt. My transfer has delayed because of the delays in issuing me with a visa. Hopefully things can be concluded by next month,” he said.
Kampamba, who features for Egyptian side Wadi Degla, is looking forward to beginning new life in Belgium and has pledged to work had and secure a starting position at Lierse.
Kampamba is with the under-23 national team at the African Under-23 Championship in Senegal and scored in the 1-2 loss to Tunisia last Saturday.
Kampamba also said securing a successful professional deal requires discipline and endurance.
He said it was not easy to settle in Egypt but discipline and endurance helped him to acclimatise.
Kampamba is enjoying life despite not having many friends to interact with.
“Football is our job. When you go to a foreign country you just have to be disciplined if you are to succeed. I struggled during my first days in Egypt. Life wasn’t easy especially that it was my first time to sign for a foreign club but now I am used,” the former Nkana goalpoacher said.
He said Zambia’s Ambassador to Egypt Ali Simwinga helped him to adapt to the North African country’s lifestyle.
Kampamba said language was a challenge but the club hired an English interpreter.
“At the moment I have started learning Arabic. I think everything is okay now,” he said.
