Zambia National Women’s Team striker Hellen Mubanga is happy with her stay at Spanish side Zaragoza.

Mubanga joined Zaragoza in June 2020 on a three year contract together with her international teammate Rachael Nachula.

A year after making the big move from Red Arrows, Mubanga said she has adapted to the environment in Spain while admitting that it was not easy.

‘We had to adapt although it was not easy. It was hard,’ she said.

‘But with time everything is going to be fine. We had a good season.’

‘The performance of the team was ok but unfortunately we could not make it to the top. Hopefully next season we are going to make it,’ Mubanga said.

She is part of the National Team preparing for next month’s Tokyo Olympic Games.

‘I am so happy to be back. It feels good to be back home and I am happy to be with my friends once again,’ Mubanga said.
