CONGOLESE striker Idris Ilunga Mbombo has officially re-joined Nkana Football Club on a two-year transfer.
Mbombo spent last season at Nkana helping the Kitwe giants to a second place finish and qualification to the CAF Champions League, consequently winning the golden boot.
He scored 26 goals in all competitions during the 2018 soccer season.
He left after that short stint with Nkana to join Sudanese club Al Hilal but political turmoil going on in that country disrupted his career, forcing him to leave the country and terminating his contract after having not played active football for four months after the league was suspended for security reasons.
According to the statement issued by club media officer Lillian Musenge, club chief executive officer Charles Chakatazya confirmed the development.
“Former Nkana FC striker, Idris Mbombo has officially rejoined the club and has since signed a two-year contract. This is after Mbombo unilaterally terminated his contract with the Sudanese side Al Hilal Omdurman FC, the club he joined in October 2018 after a short stint at Nkana. The world soccer governing body (FIFA) has since cleared Mbombo to play for Nkana FC,” Musenge stated.
“We are happy to announce that Idris Mbombo has officially rejoined Nkana FC on a two-year deal. It is great to have him back,” Charles Chakatazya added.
Chakatazya said Mbombo’s return was a great addition to the squad, noting that the 2018 MTN/FAZ Super League player of the year and golden boot winner comes back with a lot of experience.
