Kenyan star Jesse Jackson Were rejoins Zesco United after a successful tenure with Kansanshi Dynamos.

Zambia Super League giants Zesco United have officially announced the re-signing of Kenyan international striker Jesse Jackson Were.

The 34-year-old striker rejoins the club following a stint with Kansanshi Dynamos Football Club.

"Zesco United is delighted to announce the return of the Kenyan International star striker and century goal top scorer Jesse Jackson Were from Kansanshi Dynamos Football Club," the club stated in a press release.

They continued, "Welcome back to Team Ya Ziko Jesse Jackson Were and we wish you another century milestone in your stay at Zesco."

Were, renowned for his exceptional goal-scoring prowess, initially joined Zesco United in 2016 from FKF Premier League side Tusker FC.

During his remarkable five-year tenure with the club, he played a pivotal role in securing four league titles, two ABSA Cup Championships, and two Charity Shield honors.

His achievements at Zesco were unparalleled, leaving the club as the all-time record goal scorer and the first player in its history to reach the 100-goal milestone.

"Jesse's return is not just a boost for our team but a momentous occasion for our fans who admired his dedication and skill on the field," a club spokesperson remarked.

Were's journey with Kansanshi Dynamos was equally impressive. Joining them in January 2022, he played an instrumental role in the team's strong finish in the 7th position in the 2021/2022 MTN Super League.

Were emerged as the top scorer for the Mabanga Boys, netting 8 goals and providing 6 assists.

As Zesco United embarks on their chase for their tenth Zambia Premier League title, Were's return is seen as a significant boost.

His unveiling at the Zesco United Secretariat in Ndola was met with great enthusiasm.

His experience and skill are seen as vital in Zesco's campaign for the 2023/2024 season title.
