Joseph ‘Sabobo’ Banda Set to Join FC Zurich in December
Zambia’s rising talent, Joseph ‘Sabobo’ Banda, is gearing up for a significant move to 13-time Swiss champions FC Zürich next month.
The young striker, who turns 18 on December 17, 2023, will make the transition to the Swiss club after impressing with his skills on a short-term loan at Zambian Super League side Nkwazi from Atletico Lusaka, scheduled to conclude at the end of December.
Sabobo made a notable impact by scoring his first MTN Super League goal for Nkwazi on November 8, helping secure a 2-1 victory over FC MUZA. His journey to FC Zurich includes a stint with the youth side during the FIFA Youth Cup earlier this year, where he left a lasting impression.
The former Zambia U-17 national team captain spent nearly a month on trials with Spanish giants FC Barcelona last year. Prior to his current endeavors, Sabobo showcased his skills with Red Arrows in the Zambian Super League.
His impressive track record includes scoring 11 goals across three COSAFA U-17 Championships and emerging as the top scorer with 15 goals in the 2020/2021 FAZ Lusaka Provincial Division One League.
As Sabobo embarks on this exciting chapter in his career, football enthusiasts eagerly await to witness his continued growth and success.
