I’m better – Walter


NKANA goalpoacher Walter Bwalya has described as painful spending three weeks on the sidelines and he is returning a better player.
Last month, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) disciplinary committee handed Bwalya a

three-match ban for shoving referee Wellington Kaoma during the Samuel ‘Zoom’ Ndhlovu Charity final against Zesco United at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
Bwalya was protesting Kaoma’s decision to send off skipper Donashano Malama in a match Zesco won 2-0.
Bwalya said in an interview in Kitwe yesterday that it was hard to watch Nkana from the terraces.
In Bwalya’s absence, Nkana lost 1-0 to Nchanga Rangers, edged Napsa Stars 2-0 and drew 2-2 with Zesco United and are 11th on the log with five points, five behind leaders Zesco United.     
“I am happy that I have served my suspension, it was very hard for me. I have missed the pitch for three weeks and I will make sure that I will make happy all the Nkana supporters.
“It was hard but I just controlled myself…if I see the guys playing and I am in the stands I would feel bad because watching and playing is different,” he said.
Bwalya reiterated that he is targeting shaking the net 30 times this season.
“I am still focused in my career, and I am still working hard the way I used to. I know my ability, I may have missed three games but in one game I can score four goals, so my target still remains,” Bwalya said.
Nkana face Green Buffaloes in a Super Division Week Five match in Lusaka this weekend.
Last season, Bwalya was Super Division top scorer with 24 goals.
