Malawi national team skipper Joseph Kamwendo said he is optimistic to get a regular starting lineup at DRC’s TP Mazembe after managing to push his way through to the star-studded team towards last season.
Kamwendo, who has scored four goals in 17 appearances, endured a difficult start to the season when he was offered a limited game time.
He said he was determined to improve his performance next season to uphold his place in the starting line-up.
“I have settled and adapted well at Mazembe and I will continue from where I left last season. I am looking forward to more game time next season as I am getting stronger every day. I think I will do better next season,” Kamwendo said.
The nimble footed player, who has played for a Danish club, CAPS United of Zimbabwe, Orlando Pirates of South Africa said struggled at the club because he was still adapting to the system.
“Playing for a new club is always difficult but now I know the system very well. I am ready to prove to point to Mazembe fans that I deserve to play for the team,” he said.
Mazembe has been seeded for the preliminary round alongside defending champions in in Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League this year and the Malawian is determined to inspire the team to victory.
Kamwendo joined TP Mazembe in 2013 from Mozambique’s top league side League Liga Mulcumana on a five-year deal.
