πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡²βœˆοΈπŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦ How every Zambian player is doing in SA so far this season

From the likes of Wedson Nyirenda, Dennis Lota, Chris Katongo, Collins Mbesuma, Isaac Chansa to Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga, Zambia shows no sign of stopping the flow of fine talent to Mzansi.

This season’s Absa Premiership has plenty of current and, potentially, future Chipolopolo talent in South Africa.

As it has always been, Zambian players have the quality to feature in the top teams such as Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs.

Pirates is the club with the most Zambian players in the PSL but where do the other clubs stand in comparison? And most crucially are they playing or are they squad players on the way out of the team?

Here's a breakdown of the 11 players in the 2019/20 season.
