Two players have dumped Malawi’s top Super League Club Mighty Wanderers to join Blantyre United.
Blantyre United have roped in former Mighty Wanderers duo of Nafe Msasa and Anthony Banda who were offloaded at their club because of indiscipline.
Technical Director for Blantyre United, Lawson Nakoma confirmed the development.
“We already sent the players’ registration papers to Super League of Malawi for processing. The players are free agents so we are hoping that Sulom will register them as soon as possible so that they can feature for the team,” Nakoma said.
The Nomads first fired Msasa for gross indiscipline and recalled him later.
Msasa allegedly took to task the Nomads executive for players’ unpaid game bonuses which did not go down well with the executive committee.
Striker Banda was added on the list of the players to be disciplined after he allegedly refused to play in protest against the unpaid bonuses.
Nakoma said he had welcomed the players to United and were not concerned with the incident hat happened at Lali Lubani Road.
He said the coming in of the hard tackling Nsasa would help bolster the team’s midfield while striker Banda would add firepower upfront.
“I know Nafe very well and I think his coming will help a lot. Banda was also such a promising young player when he was at Civo. I am sure at Blantyre United he can regain his form,” he said.
Banda has not enjoyed much game time at Wanderers ever since he joined the Nomads some four seasons ago.
The Nomads had been alternating Nsasa and Alfred Manyozo Junior though many felt a combination of the two players would have been effective rather than leaving one on the bench.
Nafe joined Wanderers from Super League relegated side Escom United while Banda was poached from Blue Eagles where he established himself as prolific striker.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
