After a tug of war between 3 potential suitors, the Zambian attacking midfielder settled for the oil-rich league. Needless to say, the ambitions to play in Europe are still thriving in the blood of the young rising star. “My dream is to eventually break into established European leagues, so please keep in touch with those teams that put offers before I left Africa” said Saith Sakala when Joe spoke to him on the day he was unveiled as a new signing for Al Fateh FC.
The ambitious side that finished eighth in the league last season did not waste time by thrusting their new signing into fray when they fell down 4-1 at home to Al Taawon. It happened to be a battle for the mid-table teams that finished 7th and 8th respectively last season as Saith Sakala was introduced in the 46th minute with the home side trailing by a goal to nil. It’s left to the 21 year old to prove himself , if he can be instrumental to change the fortunes of this team and woe back the interest of Lockeren, Locha FC and other European sides that are closely monitoring his progress.
