Mighty Be Forward Wanderers Team Manager Steve Madeira has spoken out on the recent missing of versatile attacking midfielder Jafali Chande.
Chande has been missing at the Nomads training ground since last week.
But Madeira said there is no cause for worry as the player is just on a compassionate leave.
According to Madeira, Chande approached the club officials seeking holiday days to sort out some personal issues.
He said the player was supposed to restart training on Monday this week but he made a telephone call seeking some extra days as he is yet to finalise the family issues.
Madeira said they expect Chande to return to training this week but completely ruled him out of this coming weekend’s TNM Super League match against Red Lions.
Chande joined Be Forward Wanderers at the beginning of the 2016-17 season after dumping Nyasa Big Bullets following Contractual misunderstandings.
In a related development, former Wanderers shot stopper Richard Chipuwa is back in the country from Mozambique where he went to seek greener pasture.
According to reports, Chipuwa will return to Mozambique next season.
Chingale FC Vice President Steven Kausendo confirmed his club has released Chipuw to rejoin Wanderers for him to maintain his form.
“We have decided to send him back to his Malawian club so that he can continue playing to maintain form. We hope to take him back next season,” Kausendo is quoted as saying in the local press.
Kausendo further said Chipuwa’s contract is still valid but it won’t be active if he will play for another club.
Wanderers Manager Madeira has also confirmed the return of the on and off Flames goalkeeper and revealed he watched Wanderers training on Monday this week.
He expressed warm welcome to Chipuwa.
“We have welcomed him because he is our own he belongs to our family just like Joseph Kamwendo, when he leaves he always come back to where he belong and start all over again” said Madeira.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
