LUSAKA Dynamos star, Dennis Dauda says the new captaincy role excites him.

Dauda has nine points out of the possible nine, in the three games he captained and they have conceded just once while having scored six times.

The former ZPC Kariba and CAPS United defender feels honoured to be entrusted with a leadership role in foreign land.



“It’s too early but what I can say for now is I am happy for myself and the team.


“Since we’re doing well we are getting points and everyone knows how it feels to be a captain outside your country


“Life in Zambia we can’t say its best but it’s better than in Zimbabwe. I am still to learn more things the only thing that I can say so far is you have to work hard for you to play in Zambia,” said Dauda.

Dauda, who signed a two-year contract with the Zambian side early last year, is amongst the Zimbabweans doing well abroad.

“When you agree on something as a team you want to achieve it. The feeling of winning after some bad results is great and we are celebrating every win.


“Every game I talk to four to five senior players in the squad I remind them the need to go and fight.



“In the past people were not telling each other the truth. It was my wish to lead them so I can have that time to tell them the truth and in the process help the team to improve,” he added.


With more Zimbabwean players going to Zambia, Dauda said the feeling is overwhelming to me compatriots on foreign land.


“On Saturday I played versus my former teammate, Dominic Chungwa and other friends but I always tell them that work comes first.”
