Gift Mphande Joins Hapoel Ironi Rishon LeZion on Loan 


Gift Mphande, a promising 19-year-old central defender from Zambia, has officially completed a one-year loan move to Liga Leumit side Hapoel Ironi Rishon LeZion. The transfer has been confirmed, solidifying Mphande’s temporary move to the Israeli club.

Mphande’s football journey has led him to Rishon LeZion from his home club Athletico Lusaka, a well-known talent hub in Zambia. His loan agreement with Hapoel Ironi Rishon LeZion provides him with the opportunity to gain valuable experience and exposure in a new football environment.

The young defender’s talents have not gone unnoticed, as he previously caught the attention of Italian Serie A club Cagliari during trials. His impressive performance during these trials showcased his potential and ability on the field. Despite the positive reception, Mphande was unable to secure a contract with Cagliari due to the club’s allocation of non-EU player slots being already filled.

Mphande‘s loan move to Hapoel Ironi Rishon LeZion signifies a pivotal step in his career development. It provides him with the platform to further hone his skills, adapt to new playing conditions, and contribute to the club’s objectives during his time in the Israeli Liga Leumit. As Mphande embarks on this chapter of his football journey, the experience gained could potentially shape his trajectory in the sport.
