Leicester City’s Patson Daka is a national treasure in Zambia, receiving praise from the PRESIDENT for scoring against Manchester United, he’s paid win bonuses for former teammates and he’s even built his mum a house

Patson Daka is loving life at Leicester City and he is cheering up a nation dismayed by another disappointing qualification campaign, according to the director of his boyhood club.

The young striker is back in his homeland to complete Zambia’s matches in World Cup qualification, with a home-game against Mauritania, followed by a 6,000-mile trip to face Group B leaders, Tunisia, on Tuesday.

And Lee Kawanu, the director of Kafue Celtic, a club 30 miles from the Zambian capital of Lusaka where it all began for Daka, says the Foxes forward will receive a good reception, despite the ‘Copper Bullets’ having almost no hope of going through.
