There was much hype surrounding Kambole’s arrival from Zambian champions Zesco United last June, but he has thus far failed to score in 12 appearances.
Despite the dry spell, Mbesuma has urged his compatriot not to let the high expectations get to him.
“Chiefs are a big team and there is a lot of pressure. When I joined Chiefs in 2004 I struggled in the beginning but after I scored, everything came right,” Mbesuma told Daily Sun.
“I think Lazarous must keep calm. This [loss of form] happens to anyone when he is in a new environment. Lazarous will adapt and will show his best soon. All he needs is to score one goal,” he added.
“Lazarous has played in African Champions League and won many trophies in Zambia. I speak to him and all Zambian players in South Africa all the time. And I give them advice.”
