Zambia's Joseph Musonda speaks out after Afcon final injury

The Golden Arrows back is hoping to return from the six-week injury that he picked up in Gabon
Zambia defender Joseph Musonda is hoping to bounce back soon, after injuring his ankle during the Africa Cup of Nations final.

The defender wept uncontrollably as he wobbled off the pitch against Cote d'Ivoire, in his 100th appearance for Zambia. He has been ruled out of action for six weeks.

Speaking with KickOff.com after returning from Zambia at the weekend, Musonda says he is happy with Chipolopolo's success, but disappointed to return to work with a long-term injury.

"I feel bad with the injury, especially as it came while my club is not doing well. I don't know what is happening [at Arrows], but maybe it's a matter of bad luck. The team is playing well but we are failing to get the results.

"I may have been ruled out of action for the next six weeks but I believe I will come back sooner than expected," Musonda insisted.
