Jesse Were has moved to 8 goals leading the top score list of the Zambia super league. In the recent played 6 games played he has scored 8 goals. Notable four goals poured from the 5:0 massacre of Blackpool.
John Ching’andu created two goals for Jesse Were before he was replaced by Maybin Mwaba who provided an assist but Clatous Chama provided the first assist that initiated the hat trick and a goal on top against Mufulira Blackpool.
As if not enough in the midweek rescheduled week 1 Jesse Jackson Were opened up the pace by scoring in the 8th minute against Lumwana Radiants. Though 35 minutes later he missed a penalty just before the half time stroke.
When a Kenyan friend told me that Jesse Were was on the verge of joining Zesco United I thought that Zesco had made the worst buy in its history.
Now Were is a joint topscorer with 5 goals after 5 matches played and now I’ve been made to swallow my words. lol<
A question though is why does he fail to perform for Kenya?
