Zesco United striker Jesse Were believes his absence will not affect his side against Egyptian giants Al Ahly in the 2016 CAF Champions league group A opener.

According to the Kenyan international,Zesco’s chances are not slim considering home advantage despite the odds appearing heavily stacked on them.

“Our chances against Al Ahly are high because we are playing at home. So we have confidence and I don’t think my absence will affect my team because we have players who can work on the pitch,” Were told KingFut.

When asked about how mouthwatering this tie is, Jesse said, “Our coach told us this game is just a normal one just like the others.

The underdog tag that the Ndola-based outfit are carrying gives Jesse Were the buoyancy of eyeing a major upset against the tournament’s record holders.

“My hopes with my team are very high because we are the underdogs so anything can happen. We just wait for the games to begin,” Were said.

Before switching to Zambia from Kenya, Were was linked to Egypt’s Ittihad Alexanderia. He confirmed to KingFut that his commitments are with the current club but could consider a move in the future.

“As for now I’m committed to Zesco but in the future I would consider a move,” Were confirmed.

Jesse Were is ineligible to feature for Zesco United tie with Al Ahly after accumulating two yellow cards in the previous games. He is currently the Zambia Super league leading scorer with 10 goals.
