MULWANDA LUPIYA, Ndola
NEW Zesco United striker Davis Kasirye is targeting winning the Super Division title this year.

Kasirye, formerly of Democratic Republic of Congo outfit Motema Pembe, has penned a two-year deal.
Kasirye, a Ugandan international, said in an interview after he was unveiled on Tuesday that challenging for honours is top on his agenda.
“Our team is good because I have watched different teams playing and I have watched our team playing different teams. I know Zesco can win the league title.
“I want every year that I will be here to win at least a trophy so that we qualify for CAF competitions,” said Kasirye, who also had stints in Kenya and Rwanda.
The striker also promised to bang in goals to better his predecessor Idris Mbombo’s scoring prowess.
Mbombo, who has trekked to Saudi Arabian side Al Shabab, netted more than 20 times during his stint at Zesco.
“You know there is pressure at whatever level you go but of course you have to handle it. I know they are up to something that is winning a trophy or two and again they are still in the CAF Confederation Cup. So if you are added to a team, you have to add value and not to make people disappointed. So that is what I am delighted about,” Kasirye said.
Zesco face South African top side SuperSport United in the Confederation Cup quarter-finals next month.
Rwandan midfielder Jean Claude Iranzi and Burundian duo of goalkeeper Dieudonne Ntibahezwa and midfielder Enock Saumukwama are the other players that have joined Zesco.
