The Zambian international was expected to move to the Southern part of Africa five years ago when he was linked to Orlando Pirates but chose to join the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) giants.

Kalaba’s side lost in the Super Cup to reigning CAF Champions League winners Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday at Loftus Versfeld Stadium. The veteran midfielder admits that travelling to South Africa sparks memories of turning down a possible move to the PSL and says once his contract at Mazembe expires, he could possibly move.

“Yes [when asked if he has a desire to move to South Africa], but at the moment I have a contract with TP Mazembe so when my contact expires I will see my next move. I will leave it to my bosses. I would move [to Sundowns], every player needs to move, so if there is an opportunity, why not?”
