MIDFIELDER Saith Sakala says he will use his move to Saudi Arabian Premiership side Al-Fateh Sports Club as a stepping stone to break

into the European League.
Sakala has clinched a five-year deal with the Saudi club.
“I am very happy to move to Saudi Arabia. My first target is to work hard and cement a starting position in the line-up,” Sakala said in an interview on Monday.
He is confident he will excel in Saudi Arabia.
“It is a new challenge in my career that I have taken with both hands and I would like to thank God for this opportunity. It is my prayer that I will be able to integrate very fast in the team and start playing as soon as possible,” Sakala said.
He also thanked the Zanaco technical bench, officials and players for their input in his career.
“I would like to thank everyone at Zanaco for their contribution in my career. I enjoyed my time with the Bankers,” Sakala said.
He joined Zanaco from Napsa Stars in 2016 and guided the Bankers to their seventh title last year.
Sakala was instrumental in leading Zanaco to the CAF Champions League group stage this year.
